Academic Planning Worksheet: Biochemistry

Preparation for your intended major is a factor in the review of your UW transfer application. Use this worksheet to help you plan for admission to your intended major and for UW general education requirements.


Department admission information

The BA and BS degree programs are capacity-constrained. Meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Applications, accepted quarterly, are due the second Friday of autumn, winter, spring, and summer quarters, by 11:59 p.m.

Transfer students must submit two applications: one to undergraduate admissions and one to the biochemistry major.

Applications for autumn quarter admission to the biochemistry major are due on the second Friday of April.
