The Graduate School uses an online application.
Most Graduate programs at USJ use rolling admissions, so there is never a hard deadline to complete the admission file. However, the MSW program has priority deadline. Important dates to consider when completing a Graduate program application are the official start date of the next semester and the add/drop date. All required documents for registration and matriculation must be submitted by these dates in order to enroll for courses.
If you have general questions about a program or the admission process, contact the Office of Graduate Admissions by phone at 860.231.5261 or by email.
You can also reach out to the program director or faculty from your program of interest; however, it is recommended that you submit an application and transcript first so the faculty member has your background prior to your discussion.
Open Houses provide the ideal opportunity to meet with a faculty member and/or program director. Information and a schedule is available at our Graduate Open House page.
Once your application is processed, you will receive a welcome email and standard mailing comprised of your student ID number and login credentials to access the self-serve portal where you can track the contents of your admission file and both information on how to complete and submit the required admission forms.
All documents (excluding the Proof of Immunization form) should be submitted to the Office of Graduate Admissions by mail, walk-in, email, fax, or web upload. Applicants may submit documents individually or wait and submit all at once.
