Fall Priority Application Deadline: Feb. 1
Priority deadline for first review of complete applications.
As a practice, the School of Education takes a holistic approach to reviewing applications. We assess each applicant with balanced consideration, looking at their life experiences, personal attributes, and academic metrics. We also evaluate how applicants may contribute to the school and to their chosen field.
The School of Education has application requirements that pertain to all students and certain programs. Please refer to the sections below for information about your program’s requirements.
Please visit our International Student page for more information.
The Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) Program at the University of San Francisco (USF) has a two part sequential admissions process which includes (1) the screening of applications and (2) an in-person group interview for applicants who have been selected from the initial screening.
MFT faculty review applications to determine who to invite for an in-person campus interview. This is based on the following considerations:
Individuals who meet our criteria during the screening process are invited for an in-person group interview at the San Francisco, Sacramento, Santa Rosa, and San Jose campuses depending on which campus the applicant applied. If attendance to a group interview is not possible due to financial or personal circumstances, arrangements can be made for an online or phone interview, though in-person interviews are strongly encouraged. Group interviews are conducted 2-4 times a month.
The group interview is facilitated by at least one MFT faculty member and participants are evaluated based on the following:
February 1: Priority deadline for MFT applications for Fall term.
October 15: Priority deadline for MFT application for the San Francisco campus Spring term.
The MFT faculty admissions committee review applications on a rolling basis and make every effort to inform candidates if they have an interview within 1-2 weeks of receiving a complete application (two letters of reference, resume, statement, application). Following an interview, a decision will be sent to the applicant within 2 weeks.
Applications will continue to be reviewed pending space in the program.
Monday–Friday 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
