Admitted Student Previews 2016

Admitted Student Previews (ASP) is a one-day event for newly admitted Huskies and their families. ASP is especially suited to students and families who have not yet committed to the UW and who seek an authentic taste of the Husky Experience before making a decision by May 2. 

No events are required. The schedule offers a mix of activities, and you may choose to attend as much or as little as you like.

Update April 11: Thank you for your interest in exploring the UW. All sessions of ASP are now full, including the waitlist.  We encourage you to take advantage of other opportunities to experience life as a Husky:


What if I want to bring more than one guest?

The limit of one guest is based on the room capacity for the morning’s welcome address and Husky Experience panel. Additional family members are welcome to attend all other events and activities offered by ASP. Please consult the program for your session.

I can visit only on the weekend. What are my options?

Many campus facilities are open starting at 12:00 noon.

I can’t attend any of the ASP sessions. What else can my family do to experience the UW?

We offer many things to do even if you don't attend an Admitted Student Preview session.

I want to schedule an appointment with someone from the College of Engineering. Can you do this for me?

Unfortunately, due to its commitment to current students, the College of Engineering will not take appointments during ASP. They will be available at the Academic and Student Life fair and are accessible via email and phone.

Departmental Advising Offices

Note: Advisers from the College of Engineering and Foster School of Business will be available only at the Resource Fair.

Will I sign up for classes at Admitted Student Preview?

You will register for classes at an Advising & Orientation session (A&O) during the summer. Once the new student fee is processed—which can take up to two business days—you will be able to sign up for an A&O, which is sponsored by First Year Programs.

Plan your visit


Dress comfortably. There is no need to dress up for us; besides, Seattle culture is generally pretty informal. Above all, we recommend comfortable walking shoes. You will be walking, and you'll want to look up at the sights, not down at your sore feet.


If you have a UW NetID, you may use it to access UW wireless networks.

Guests who need obtain temporary access to UW wifi will be provided with login and password at Check In.
