In addition to CWRU, there are 24 online MSW programs offered by out-of-state schools that accept students from Ohio. Some out-of-state programs charge the same tuition for in-state and out-of-state students, while others do not. On OnlineMSWPrograms.com, we have done our best to indicate which schools charge the same tuition rates for in-state and out-of-state students, but always recommend that students reach out to prospective schools to confirm current tuition rates before applying.

Of the 24 out-of-state programs, 19 are fully online and do not require students to visit the campus while they complete their degree program. The other five schools do require students to make a limited number of campus visits during the program. These programs give students a chance to meet instructors and fellow classmates in person in addition to interacting online. The five schools that require campus visits are California State University, San Bernardino, Humboldt State University (California), Indiana University, Portland State University (Oregon), and the University of North Dakota.
