APPLY IN 2 EASY STEPS

  1. Submit your application at applytexas.org and pay the application fee. 
  2. Submit official or unofficial transcripts of all higher education institutions attended to the UTA Office of Admissions, Records and Registration for GPA evaluation. For information on submitting transcripts, go to the following webpage: https://www.uta.edu/admissions/apply/submitting-transcripts

Yes – it is that simple! ** 

** NOTE:

UTA Graduate Admissions office will calculate your GPA based on transcripts submitted. With a 3.0 or better GPA in approximately your last 60 university-level undergraduate credit hours, you can qualify for quick admission and be admitted to our MSW program. 

You will be notified if your GPA is calculated to be less than 3.0 in approximately your last 60 university-level undergraduate hours and some additional documentation may be requested such as letters of recommendation and completing a narrative. However, all applicants should first complete the two-step process and wait for the determination. 

The GRE is currently not required for admission to the MSW program. 

We DO NOT have application deadlines. UTA has priority application dates and will accept applications after these dates. However, applying early (by the priority date) gives you the best opportunity to be admitted early enough to later be eligible to apply for scholarships, grants, fellowships and assistantships. 

International Applicants will need to contact the Office of International Education (OIE) or visit this website https://www.uta.edu/oie as the fee structure, deadlines and orientation dates vary from those of domestic applicants.  For additional admissions information click the dropdown link below. However, again all MSW applicants should first complete the two-step process: (1) Apply and pay the application fee and (2) submit your transcripts for the quick admissions decision and you will be notified if you need to provide any of the above information.
