* First deadline is highly recommended.

^ Evaluation process for Transfer students requires additional time so the first  deadline is highly recommended.

** Summer admission is for the Rockland and Westchester County Campuses only.

^^ Due to the limited number of seats the first deadline is firm and then on a case basis as space permits.

^* Please note that each school requires a separate application. We recommend that dual degree candidates adhere to the first deadline for the MSW program and inquire with the secondary school for their deadline.

Applications submitted after the deadline will be reviewed on a space available basis.
