Admission Events

Get to Know Us!

We offer a variety of opportunities for you to dig deeper into the elements that separates BU’s School of Social Work from other programs; we invite you to tour campus, sit in on a class, and chat with current students and faculty. If a visit isn’t possible at the moment, you can easily meet and talk with one of our representatives at informal events or graduate school fairs held around the country.

Have a quick question? Find us on Skype at busswadmissionandfinaid and we will be happy to help you. If you have more detailed questions related to your application status or financial aid for example you should email us instead at
