GSSWGraduate School of Social Work

Cost of Attendance

A professional social work education requires financial investment. Fortunately, more than 95 percent of our students receive scholarships, grants or stipends.

Many students pay for their education with a combination of scholarships, grants, work-study and student loans, as well as part-time work outside the school.

If you have questions about expenses or financial aid, please contact the GSSW Office of Admission.
