Students apply to the Early Admission option in the spring of their first year or autumn of  their sophomore year.

There are many benefits associated with Early Admission to the BASW Program.  This option serves as an early conduit to the School of Social Work network, expanding connections and fostering community for Early Admit students within the School.
