Full Time Advanced Standing MSW (Summer II Admit)

Part Time Advanced Standing MSW


As an advanced standing student, the time to start the application process for a fieldwork internship is upon admission to the program. You start this process by completing the Advanced Standing Field Work Application. Please note the final deadline to apply is July 1; however, it is recommended you do this as soon as you have made your decision to attend Loyola.


Advanced Standing students who wish to specialize in School Social Work must declare their specialization by completing the  fieldwork application AND submit applicable test scores to the Program Director by March 15. If you have been admitted after this deadline, contact the program director, Amy Greenberg, immediately to discuss your options. For more information see the Schools Specialization.

For more information on field work, please visit our Field Work webpage.

Also feel free to contact your Field Internship Coordinator, Hilary Gilway. Hilary can be reached via email at hgilway@luc.edu and/or by phone at (312) 915-7706.
