Summary of the application procedure:
• The application includes a short statement of purpose explaining your interest in the program and detailing your academic background, and a letter of recommendation by a teacher with whom you have studied. The letter should describe your academic aptitude and focus on your suitability for a study abroad program.
• Non-UW students are welcome and will be given equal opportunity in the application process. We will do everything in our ability to ensure successful transfer of credits to other universities - please inquire about transfer of credits at your institution! Non-UW students will pay an additional $200 registration fee. Non-UW students receiving grants from their institutions can submit official letters from the relevant institution to defer fee payments, contingent upon prior approval of the UW International Programs coordinator.
• Priority will be given to applications completed by the February 15 deadline. Applications will be accepted after the deadline, but students are advised to contact the program director to inquire about space availability.
Admission is contingent on filling all the relevant forms on the application
page and attending all orientation meetings (or the equivalent
for students from outside Seattle). UW and non-UW students alike must
submit forms to concurrently enroll in the UW during summer quarter.
