Admissions

Direct to College is a new admission process that assures incoming freshman students who are admitted into the College of Engineering that they can pursue an engineering degree at the UW. The changes take effect for the incoming freshman class of 2018.

We are in the process of updating our website to reflect the changes. For details, see:

April 2017 announcement  Direct to College FAQ

Information Sessions

High School Students

The department encourages all prospective students currently in high school to attend a  UW Campus Tour and Freshman Information Session (registration is required).  These information sessions are hosted by the UW Office of Admissions and will cover how to apply to the UW in general.  If interested, students may also register for a UW Residence Life Tour

We ask that prospective students attend a UW Campus Tour and Freshman Information Session before requesting an advising appointment with the A&A Undergraduate Adviser.  Please contact us at ugadvising@aa.washington.edu to inquire about availability of an advising appointment.  We are only able to schedule an advising appointment up to two weeks in advance.  Unfortunately, we are unable to provide any departmental tours.


Transfer Students

The department encourages all prospective transfer students currently at a community college or other 4-year university to attend a UW Transfer Thursday Information Session (registration is required). These information sessions are hosted by the UW Office of Admissions and will cover how to apply to the UW in general.
