Jump-start your transfer to UW with MyPlan

MyPlan, the exclusive academic planning tool of the University of Washington, is now available to you! MyPlan was originally established for use by students enrolled at UW to develop a comprehensive plan to achieve their academic goals. Now, with recent funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, prospective students who are currently attending or have previously attended any Washington State Community or Technical College can utilize MyPlan to begin planning their transfer to UW.

Here are some ways MyPlan can help you envision your future at the UW: 

See how your CTC courses transfer

MyPlan allows you to import your unofficial transcripts from any Washington State Community or Technical College and view how the courses you have already taken translate to coursework at the UW. You can also easily enter any CTC courses you are planning to take, allowing you to view how both completed and projected coursework may transfer! 

Evaluate your progress toward a UW degree

After importing your courses, use MyPlan to audit your progress toward any degree program offered at any of the three UW campuses — Seattle, Tacoma, or Bothell. By understanding which degree requirements you’ve already fulfilled, you can better plan what courses you need to take in order to meet your academic goals should you be accepted to the UW.

Envision your future at the UW

With MyPlan, you can begin to visualize your future at the UW. You can search for and bookmark UW courses of interest, and create an academic plan based on those courses. You can also print your plan to share with an academic adviser at your home institution. Communicating with your transfer advising staff is vital to ensure you are on the right path for academic success.
