BSW Admissions

Admission to the university

The University of Texas at Austin Office of Admissions is responsible for the admission and readmission of all undergraduate students to the university. Admission requirements and the application process can be found at Be a Longhorn, university’s Office of Admissions gateway for prospective students.

Be a Longhorn has all the information you need to be admitted to the university, whether you are a first-time freshman, a student transferring from another university, a former UT student seeking readmission, or an international undergraduate.

Admission to the School of Social Work

All BSW students begin the program as pre-social work majors. Pre-majors are generally freshmen and sophomores who are completing general education requirements and lower-division social work courses. See admission requirements for the pre-social work major here.

After completing the pre-major, eligible BSW students may apply to the social work major. Social work majors are primarily students in the junior and senior years who are completing the upper-division courses and a supervised internship or field practicum in a social service agency. Only students who completed the pre-major requirements at the School can apply for the social work major. See admission requirements for the social work major here.

If you are interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree in social work, please contact the BSW Academic Advisor Alexis George at alexis.george@austin.utexas.edu, or call (512) 471-5457. We will be happy to answer your questions or schedule an informational meeting with you.
