The University of Washington seeks students who can benefit from its wealth of academic and cultural opportunities and who can contribute to its dynamic energy and rich diversity of experiences. The UW desires to admit students who display qualities that predict academic success and enhance the intellectual and cultural vitality of the university community. The UW considers applicants through a holistic assessment of an applicant's academic performance and personal qualities and achievements.
Veterans and military personnel bring unique qualities to the University of Washington, and we welcome their interest. The Office of Admissions provides guidelines to help veterans and military personnel become eligible for admission consideration.
