The Centralized Application Service for Social Work

The Centralized Application Service for Social Work (SocialWorkCAS) is a full service, Web-based application system that allows students to apply to multiple participating master’s of social work programs with a single application and facilitates a streamlined admissions process for programs. View this brief video to learn more about a centralized application service.

Using SocialWorkCAS, applicants can research programs and then use one online application to apply to all programs of interest. Programs can use SocialWorkCAS to reach a broader audience of applicants and to streamline admissions workflows (including review processes and evaluations) so they can focus on fostering relationships with their prospective students.

This is also where students can apply to master’s of social work programs participating in the SocialWorkCAS and programs can enroll in the system. A full list of social work programs, including SocialWorkCAS participants and nonparticipants, can be found in the CSWE Directory of Accredited Programs.

CSWE is participating in Health Professions Week (HPW). HPW is an exciting week-long event for high school and college students interested in learning more about careers in the health professions. HPW will include an online treasure hunt, on-campus events and two virtual fairs. It is a free online event for high school students, counselors, undergrads and advisors. Click here to learn more!
