NOTICE TO PROSPECTIVE UW TRANSFER APPLICANTS:

If you are not yet enrolled as a student at UW's Seattle campus, you'll need to submit two separate applications for admission:

  • UW transfer student application, for admission to the University of Washington. Prospective UW transfer students should review the UW transfer admission website for details, timelines and requirements. Deadlines vary, based on your intended quarter of admission.
  • BASW application for departmental admission to the Autumn 2019 BASW program (will become available in February 2019, early April deadline). Note: UW's Autumn 2019 transfer application deadline (February 15, 2019) is earlier than our departmental BASW application, which does not become available until February.  Transfer students should plan ahead and must apply for general university admission, in addition to departmental admission to the BASW program.

FAFSA & WASFA:

Over half of UW undergraduates receive financial aid. Applying for financial aid is separate from your application(s) for admission. The UW uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and for undocumented students living in Washington, the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA). For priority aid consideration, be sure that you have submitted your FAFSA/WASFA by January 15 for the upcoming school year, even if you don’t know whether you will be offered admission.
