Joint Program in Social Work

Universities of NCA&T and UNCG

The Joint M.S.W. Program conducts one application cycle per year. We will accept applications for the 2023-2024 academic year for the Advanced Standing and Two-Year Programs beginning in August 2022.

Applications must be complete to be considered, no late applications are accepted. See here for an application.



The deadline for Advanced Standing cohort applications is January 15.

The priority deadline for Generalist cohort applications is also January 15. All applications received by 11:59 PM on January 15 will be reviewed. Applications may be submitted until March 15. Applications submitted after January 15 will only be reviewed until the Generalist cohort is full.

We strongly encourage you to submit your applications as early as possible!


After Application

Once accepted into the Joint M.S.W. Program, each student will be randomly assigned to one of the two universities for purposes of tuition and fees, registration, financial aid, and access to all fee-based services, including student health services. This will be considered the student’s “home” campus.

The Joint M.S.W. Program does not allow applicants to defer enrollment from one year to the next. Applicants who are accepted and do not enroll in the semester for which they are accepted must reapply for admission.
