Apply to the University

How to Apply

The first step in applying to the MSW program is to apply to Cal State LA via the Cal State Apply Website.

The MSW application is included in the university online application in Quadrant 4 (Q4). 

You complete only one application to apply to both the university and the MSW program. In Q4 you will be able to upload your personal statement, resume and unofficial transcript. When you provide the name and email address for the person writing your reference letters they will be sent an email with the reference form to complete and submit.

Please be sure you apply for Fall 2020 as we admit students only for the Fall Semester. Once you have submitted the application and paid the application fee of $70.00 you will be issued a Campus Identification Number (CIN).

You will need the 9-digit CIN # in order to check your application progress.
