Enrolling in the MSW Program gives you access to the many resources listed under "Current Students" on the DePaul website. This section spotlights some of the services and information of particular interest to current and future social work students at DePaul.
Students admitted to the MSW Program are encouraged to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form as early as possible to ensure they are provided access to loans, scholarships, assistantships and other forms of aid available to all graduate students. The MSW Program typically has two kinds of graduate assistantships offered each academic year. The first type (available only to incoming MSW students) supports the department office, and the second type (for students who have completed their first field internship) supports the field coordinator. Both types of assistantships require weekly hours of work in the program office, and each provides a designated number of credit hours of tuition remission, along with a nominal quarterly stipend. New students in the MSW program who have confirmed enrollment and continuing students can access these assistantships here.Information on other program support is sent to enrolled students as it becomes available, and assistantships and other support available external to the department is posted on the department's Facebook page.Additional information on financial aid can be found at the Office of Financial Aid.

DePaul's libraries are an
excellent resource for students. In addition to the hundreds of
thousands of books, periodicals, microforms and other reference
materials housed in the library, students can also complete their
research from home by accessing online journal articles. If a particular
journal article or book is not available at DePaul, students can borrow
them from other libraries through inter-library loan. For students
needing research assistance, librarians are available to help through
instant messaging, phone, email, or by appointment. Search through Social Work subject pages at the DePaul Library.
