Advising Appointments for Prospective Students

Schedule a Zoom or Phone advising appointment. Please note:

  1. Many questions (funding, overview of programs, practicum) are answered in information sessions. Before booking an appointment, first explore our event calendar below for details about live and recorded info sessions.  Prospective students are also encouraged to connect with current MSW student ambassadors: Sommer and Maura 
  2. PhD applicants: contact the PhD Program for advising appointments.
  3. MSW alternate list students: we do not share with applicants their position on the alternate list. Space may become available if admitted candidates decline our offer of admission (if so, we offer open spaces to applicants on the alternate list).
  4. Newly admitted students: appointments are intended for prospective applicants. Admitted students should instead consult the newly admitted students page for FAQs and resources (registration, orientation, next steps), and email Student Services with questions not addressed on that page.
