JD/MSW Admissions

We make our admission process as straightforward and personalized as possible. If you have any questions or need guidance, our counselors and advisers in the School of Law are available to assist you at every stage of your application process.

Application Timeline

Ideally, you would apply to both programs before starting either, but if you are enrolled in either program, you could, during the first year, apply for and be accepted to the other program. You may not count MSW credits toward the JD until you have been accepted into the law school.

We operate under a rolling-admission system for the School of Law, but suggest submitting your application by March 1 for priority fall admission and scholarship consideration.

Candidates for the Dean’s Fellows full-tuition awards should apply by February 1.

Admission Requirements

You must apply and be accepted separately into both the JD program in the School of Law and the Master of Social Work (MSW) program in the School of Health Sciences.

Admissions for these programs are handled separately, but a student should inform both admissions offices of an interest in pursuing the dual degree. The earlier you are accepted into both programs and declare pursuit of both degrees, the more beneficial the dual-degree program is in the practical savings of time and credits.

Upon admission to the dual-degree program (JD/MSW), you must meet with the director of the MSW program and the associate dean of academic affairs of the School of Law.
