MSW Application Procedure

MSW Application for Fall 2023 closed at 11:59pm Pacific time on January 30, 2023

You can find a guide to help craft a personal statement here:


Please be mindful that some MSW programs require a minimum of BA field hours for admission. The MSW program at Fresno State DOES NOT have a minimum field hours requirement so it does NOT apply to Fresno State applicants.  

If you have applied to another MSW program, be sure to verify the prospective program’s current requirements, especially for advanced standing programs, as we cannot discuss other program’s requirements.
