2011 Freshman Application Deadline Moved to Dec. 15

In June, the University of Washington announced that the deadline for 2011 freshman admission applications for the Seattle campus has been moved to Dec. 15.

Freshman applications for 2011 will now be received between Oct. 1 and Dec. 15, with applicants for autumn quarter being notified of their admissions status between March 15 and 31, 2011. This new deadline does still allow for students to utilize the Dec. 4 SAT and Dec. 11 ACT test dates if applicants name the UW as a recipient when signing up for the test.

The change is intended to help reduce the anxiety of students and their families by letting them know exactly when they will be notified regarding their admissions status. The new deadline also allows more time for admissions staff members to follow up with applicants should questions arise.

The UW admissions application fee is $60, but fee waivers are available for students with confirmed financial hardships. Get more information on fee waivers.

Please note this change does not affect admission deadlines at the UW Bothell and UW Tacoma campuses.
