Congratulations again on your admission to the University of Washington! While you’ve been offered admission to UW, you were not admitted to the College of Engineering. Engineering majors at the UW are in high demand by applicants, which means that not all admitted students who list engineering as their first-choice major will be offered Direct to College admission. You have many options, however.

CONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS AS A PRE-MAJOR

Many different paths can lead from a single interest. Consider what attracted you to engineering in the first place. What about it appeals the most? Where might you find similar interests in another field of study?

As a pre-major, 160 majors are available to you outside the College of Engineering. At the UW, you’ll have the opportunity to shape your Husky Experience through undergraduate research, internships, study abroad, extracurricular opportunities and more, all with support from your academic adviser.

Use the Find Programs tool within MyPlan to start reviewing majors now.

CAN I STILL BE ADMITTED TO ENGINEERING LATER?

No, it’s unlikely. Because the College of Engineering has a limited number of spaces for students not admitted via Direct to College as freshmen, we cannot guarantee that students will receive placement at a later time. Therefore, we encourage you to pursue another at the UW.

If you have any questions about next steps, feel free to contact your admission counselor, we’re here to help.
