Admissions


 

Hello!

 Thank you for your interest in the UWS Social Work Program. If you are transferring in, or are a current student, this information will help you apply for formal admissions to the major.  Students typically take this step in the spring of their sophomore year (at UWS or a community college). If you have any questions about this process, please contact Dr. Monica Roth Day, Social Work Program Coordinator, 715-394-8486 or mrothday@uwsuper.edu.

Step 1:  Apply to UWS (if you are a community college student and ready to transfer). The general step in the process is for you to apply to be accepted to UWS - general admissions.  You can apply online at http://www.uwsuper.edu/admissions/apply/index.cfm.  Once you are accepted to UWS, you will be assigned a social work advisor and be able to register for courses. You do not need to wait to be accepted to UWS to set up your Social Work Admissions Interview.

Step 2: Set up your admissions interview. Attached is the interview schedule.  To set up your interview time:

·If you are a non-campus student:  Review the schedule then stop by my office (Swenson 3113), where the interview schedule is posted. 

·If you are a Distance Learning student, community college student, or not on campus this semester:  Send Dr. Monica Roth Day (mrothday@uwsuper.edu) three possible times you are available for an interview. She will then add you to our schedule, and email you to confirm the time.

All interviews will take place on-campus in Swenson Hall, Room 3113.

Step 3: Complete your application materials and submit them at least one week before your interview. The Admissions Packet can be found below, in a PDF file. Please send (by email or regular post) all your materials - the cover sheet, essay and reference sheets. If your materials are not submitted on time, your interview will be postponed (with one additional opportunity to reschedule). (Reference sheets and the cover letter can be scanned and sent via email.)

To email your materials - mrothday@uwsuper.edu.

To post your materials - Dr. Monica Roth Day, Social Work Program Coordinator, UWS Swenson Hall 3113, PO Box 2000, Superior, WI 54880

Step 4: Attend your interview.  Faculty will review your application packet and the information from the interview carefully, and then determine your admissions within two weeks.

We encourage you to interview early. We are able to accept 40 students into the incoming junior social work group this year, and there are a considerable number of students who will be submitting applications this year.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact Dr. Monica Roth Day, Social Work Program Coordinator, 715-394-8486 or mrothday@uwsuper.edu.
