Transfer Students

Every transfer applicant is reviewed thoroughly and holistically. Begin your journey with a look at the factors we use in comprehensive review. Good preparation for your intended major is the best preparation for admission. Many students complete their first two years at a community college and then transfer to the UW to complete a bachelor’s degree.   More
