The UW School of Social Work seeks to enroll well-qualified students of varying backgrounds and a commitment to working with diverse populations. BASW admission is selective and is based on academic performance and potential, clarity and appropriateness of career objectives, understanding of social issues, and knowledge of diverse populations. Our commitment to diversity is elaborated in our Essential Skills, Values and Standards of Professional Conduct page. All applicants should carefully review these essential abilities before completing the BASW application.
*Please note: this is not the correct application if you’re applying for the UW Tacoma BASW program.
BASW applications for Autumn 2022 are now closed. Most applicants will be notified of their admission decision by the end of May (UW transfer applicants may be delayed due to general UW admission decisions). Please direct questions to the UW School of Social Work Admissions Office: email@example.com.
Please review our BASW Application checklist for help managing the admission process.
