Financial Aid Opportunities

At the Wurzweiler School of Social Work, we understand that an MSW can greatly enhance your opportunities to achieve specific professional goals and fully realize your desire to serve as a social work professional. We also understand that financial aid can be critical in making program participation possible and are pleased to assist students in applying for available tuition support.

As part of the William D. Ford Direct Loan Program, you may be eligible for a Graduate PLUS loan, which is borrowed directly from the federal government at a fixed interest rate. To verify your eligibility, you will need to complete the Graduate PLUS Loan Application and authorize a credit check, to be run by the U.S. Department of Education.

If you are interested in requesting financial aid for your MSW, we ask that you file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using the Yeshiva University Federal School code of 002903 and campus code of 00.
