Graduate Admission Process


How do I get admitted?

Each graduate program has its own admission requirements, application processes and deadlines. You MUST contact your graduate program directly to inquire about specific requirements and processes. Some programs admit new graduate students to start only in the fall semester.

Admission decisions will be made by the respective graduate programs and eligibility for enrollment will be verified by the UW Admissions Office, including the receipt of all needed official transcripts and documents. Learn more about graduate degrees.

Students not admitted, or who do not wish to pursue immediate admission to a graduate program may choose to pursue graduate coursework as a non-degree seeking graduate student. Be sure to check with Admissions to learn more about the limitations of this option.
