Future Huskies must now put the UW at the top of their application pile. Starting this fall, the UW will implement a new freshman admissions procedure, which moves the application deadline from Jan. 15 to Dec. 15 and eliminates the University’s rolling admissions process. Under the new “pooling admissions” system, admissions decisions are made only after all applications have been received and assessed. Applicants will now be notified of their status in mid- to late March, rather than upon decision.
Stemming from the ever-increasing number of applications, this change should lessen stress on admissions office resources and reduce the anxiety of students who do not hear back immediately upon submitting their application.
