BASW Application Process

Transfer students can apply to Humboldt and the Department of Social Work through Cal State Apply. This is the official application system for all 23 campuses in the California State University. Select, UDT-Fall only for application type. UDT stands for upper division transfer.

For current Humboldt students only (approaching 60 units of completion) and recent transfer students who did not apply CalState Apply for Fall transfer, complete the BA Social Work Program Application no later than March 1. Current Humboldt students must fill out the supplemental application, please contact the Bachelors Director, Jen Maguire, jjm64@humboldt for more information.

All applications received after this date will be reviewed for admission on a space-available basis. After an application has been received, it is reviewed by faculty members to ensure that each applicant meets the general program requirements. The BA Social Work Program Director will notify you about your program status.

Please note that all accepted students will be required to attend an on-campus orientation the first week of the fall semester (includes Distance Learning students). Students in the online program must live in the state of California while they are in the social work program.
