What Does Rolling Admissions Mean?

What does rolling admissions mean?

Rolling admissions at UNE means that we process applications and accept students as we receive their applications. It’s that simple! But there’s a catch…

Be proactive and be rewarded

We have a specific amount of spots to fill in the cohort, and once the spots are filled, they’re filled. Applying early could help your chances of admission.

The admissions process for graduate school at UNE Online

Our admissions team at UNE Online is continually reviewing and working toward streamlining the admissions process. We have made great strides in improving our process to make it faster and more efficient for you, and we continue to push for improvements. We try very hard to make this process as clear and easy as possible.

Getting into graduate school is definitely a multi-step procedure. You have already been through the application process to get into your undergrad program – so you probably remember that there are many pieces that need to be coordinated and it can get a little overwhelming. But like most things, the more you know up front and can plan for, the less stressful it becomes.

Gather your materials, and give yourself plenty of time

It takes longer than you would think to gather all of your materials. Colleges and universities sometimes need a couple of weeks to process your transcript request, especially during peak times. You need to factor that time in as well so you can get your transcripts in well ahead.

You’ll need to line up letters of recommendation as part of the application process, and your references need time to compose a recommendation letter for you. Quality takes time, so be sure to give your letter writer plenty of lead time to do you this courtesy.

A recap of the rolling admissions process:

  1. Online admissions is different from traditional – complete your application sooner and get your answer sooner.
  2. The admissions committee likes to see your motivation, and applying early shows initiative.
  3. Cohorts fill fast. Secure your spot.
  4. Transcripts take a while to gather. Plan for this.
  5. Give your references ample time to write your letter of recommendation.
  6. Overall, allow yourself a good month to get your application processed.

    I am from Guyana South America. I graduated with a BSC in Agriculture Science but wishes to pursue a masters in Social Work- how possible is this?

    • Hi Priscilla,

      You can take UNE Online courses anywhere in the world that has Internet connectivity.

      UNE’s online Master of Social Work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), which is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the sole accrediting agency for social work education in the U.S., and is honored in every state.

      We do ask that each student reach out to their local state licensing board to see if there is anything additional to the CSWE accreditation that they might need. Some states require extra hours or a certain clinical class, but we are usually able to build any additional requirements right into each student’s track within the UNE program.

      Please don’t hesitate to reach out to a specialized enrollment counselor via email at socialworkonline@une.edu or by phone by calling (877) 863-6791 if you were to have any questions.
