Prospective students are encouraged to consult with their respective academic department regarding the admission process before making a formal UW application.
Applicants must submit the UW graduate application and the nonrefundable application fee. One set of official transcripts must be sent directly to the UW Admissions Office from each previous collegiate institution.
Domestic applicants must have completed at least a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution. All applicants should have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA (scale of 4.0).
Applicants whose department requires the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) must request official scores be sent to the Admisssions Office directly from the Educational Testing Service (ETS). Our institution code with ETS is 4855. A score of at least 150 on the verbal reasoning section and a score of at least 141 on the quantitative reasoning section is required, (for doctoral programs a score of at least 153 on the verbal reasoning section and a score of at least 144 on the quantitative reasoning section is required).
Some departments may require scores from the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), rather than the GRE, with a minimum score of 500.
Please note that some departments require higher GRE/GMAT scores than what is required by the Admissions Office.
Letters of recommendation may also be required by some departments.
Graduate applicants should contact the respective academic departments for questions concerning application status, degree program requirements, deadlines, and supplemental application materials they may require.
Students admitted with graduate standing may elect to take any undergraduate or graduate courses for which they are prepared, subject to restrictions as outlined in the University Catalog. However, tuition will be assessed at the graduate level for all courses taken with graduate status. Admission to graduate study does not automatically make a student a candidate for an advanced degree.
Note: Students working toward a second bachelor’s degree are not considered graduate students and are subject to all undergraduate regulations.
All graduate international students must also submit the following in additional to application materials required by the Academic Department.
