Congratulations on your admissions to Loyola School of Social Work's MSW Program at the Water Tower Campus!

We recommend that all newly admitted MSW students complete a New Student Orientation Session to learn more about our program and the opportunities afforded to you.

During orientation, you will receive important information that will help you acclimate to Loyola and the School of Social Work's MSW program. This includes information regarding the MSW program’s curriculum, field work, tuition, financial aid, and student resources.
