Apply to the MSW Program

Welcome and thank you for your interest in applying to our full-time MSW program in Hayward! The application deadline for Fall 2022 has now passed.

We will share information for Fall 2023 admissions in late August 2022. Please feel free to review the application materials below, but be sure to return to this site in late August to see the most updated materials for Fall 2023 as some things may change.

Please note that we are not currently offering the three-year part-time program at Oakland.

 If you are contacting us to find out the status of your application, we anticipate sending out decisions in mid-March. 

MSW Information Sessions

We warmly invite and encourage all applicants to attend one of our information sessions to learn more about our program. We will begin hosting information sessions again in late August 2022, and will post the dates and times here.
