SocialWorkCAS charges $75 for the first program you apply to and $45 for each additional program. For example, an application that includes 5 programs will cost $255 ($75 + $45 + $45 + $45 + $45). This fee does not include any supplemental fees required by your selected programs; all supplemental fees should be paid directly to schools/programs.
Submitting Your Payment
When you are ready to submit your application, go to the Submit Application tab and click Pay for My Programs. Do not submit any payments before submitting your application. Payments can only be made in the application via a credit card. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. Credit card payments cannot be made over the phone.
Once you submit your application and payment, click View Payment History for each program on the Check Status page to confirm your payment's receipt.
Because your designated programs have access to your information as soon as you submit your application, no refunds can be issued for any reason (this includes missed deadlines and programs no longer accepting applicants).
Before submitting your application, you are prompted to review and agree to SocialWorkCAS's policies. These policies include the no refund policy and describe applicant responsibilities throughout the application process.
Credit Card Payment Disputes
An unauthorized credit card chargeback against a fee will result in the application being placed on hold for all programs. A chargeback is the return of funds to a consumer, typically occurring after a credit card transaction is disputed with the credit card company.
If we receive an unauthorized chargeback from your credit card company, we will notify you of the chargeback, place your application on hold, and notify all programs to which you applied of non-payment. To reinstate your application, you must send a money order that totals the full fee plus a $25 bank processing charge for each incorrect chargeback within 10 business days of the notification.
If payment is not received within this timeframe, any future activity will be barred until all outstanding fees are paid, including applications for future cycles.
