Welcome New Students

As you begin your journey with the Silberman School of Social Work, we invite you to familiarize yourself with the resources that will support you along the way.

Please be sure that you have fully reviewed your acceptance email and completed all steps outlined there.

These steps will provide you with access to your CUNYfirst page and your @myhunter email account.

You can review the tabs on this Orientation document for information around registration, financial aid, transfer credits, required documents, Field Education general information, as well as contact information for Academic Advisors and members of the Student Services team. As you begin planning your MSW program trajectory, please be sure you are clear about program expectations around coursework and field hours required towards completing your degree. This will shape your weekly schedule throughout the program duration. Please refer to this page for first years, your curriculum grid and field education page (including the field education manual) for clarity around program demands and expectations.

Over the next weeks, we look forward to having you join us on a series of zoom events that will further outline all requirements prior to the start of classes, provide information and access to supports, and give you an opportunity to meet your fellow new students.

Our goal is to assist you in getting all the “business” taken care of, so when classes start you can dive in with all your attention where it needs to be. We look forward to supporting you all along the way- especially during this beginning phase of the work. So, let’s get started!
