Graduate students who have been accepted into the MSW program at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy & Practice are encouraged to apply. The program is open to students in the full-time and advanced standing programs.

To apply, complete the online application by the deadline (November 15th).

To be considered for the Penn Aging Certificate, you must be in satisfactory academic standing in the MSW program. By sending this application electronically, you give us permission to contact your references, access your student file, and share information about you with PAC staff and potential Field Instructors associated with the Certificate.

Advanced Standing MSW and PAC

Students applying to the Advanced Standing MSW program should contact the PAC staff PAC@sp2.upenn.edu  early in the process to express their interest in the program. In order to be considered for the PAC program (an application and interview is mandatory), students must satisfactorily complete the two (2) required summer courses and achieve satisfactory performance in the no-cost Integrative Practice Seminar and field placement. The course work for the Fall and Spring semesters would follow the PAC requirements.
