Freshman application fee

U.S. students

The application fee is nonrefundable and must be submitted each time you apply for admission. It cannot be transferred to another quarter, to another campus of the UW or to another student.

Application fee: $80

Payment options

You may pay by credit card, debit card or an electronic check from a U.S. checking account. The application fee must be paid at the time you submit the online application and cannot be submitted separately. The online application cannot be processed or reviewed by the Office of Admissions unless the application fee has been paid online and submitted with the online application or a fee waiver has been granted.

Fee waivers

For students with confirmed financial hardship, the UW provides a waiver of the application fee.

Receiving a fee waiver will have no bearing whatsoever on the review of your application for admission, and the information you provide will not be released to anyone for any purpose.

Conditions for granting a fee waiver

Generally, UW Admissions waives the application fee if you are a U.S. applicant (citizen, permanent resident or refugee), with financial need. HB 1079 students: You are eligible for a fee waiver as long as you submit the U.S. freshman application.

How to request a fee waiver

The fee waiver request is embedded in the Coalition application. No additional forms or documents are required. If your request is not approved, you will need to pay the application fee before submitting your application.

Further guidance

If you have questions about the fee waiver process or wish to speak to a staff member, please contact the Office of Admissions.
