As of January 1, 2016 HUSSW only accepts online applications.
Scores from standardized examinations (e.g. GRE, GMAT) are not required. Applicants must submit official copies of transcripts from each college or university attended, regardless of degree status or number of courses completed when enrolled. Official copies of transcripts must be mailed directly to Howard University by the registrar or other authorized representative of the issuing institution.
Transcripts issued to and/or received and submitted by applicants will not be accepted and will delay the completion of the admission application process. Please request four individuals who may attest to your character, interest, and potential for success in the social work profession to submit recommendations on your behalf. Appropriate recommenders include college professors, employment supervisors, volunteer and community service supervisors, credentialed social work practitioners and others who are able to provide an objective professional recommendation on your behalf. Applicants who earned baccalaureate or graduate degrees within one year of application and applicants transferring from other accredited MSW degree programs must obtain at least two recommendations from faculty who taught them. Please, do not request relatives, close friends or peers to submit recommendations on your behalf.
