Transfer Students



Are you a transfer student?

If you have attended college courses after graduating from high school, you are a transfer student. If your college courses were completed prior to your high school graduation or the summer prior to enrolling at UW, (for example: concurrent enrollment) then you are considered a new first time freshman. Please review the freshman admissions requirements, if you are not a transfer student.
