In order to apply to the program, applicants who are current UW students or transfer students must complete an online application and provide the information and materials listed below. The next application cycle will be for autumn 2020. The application will open in late winter/early spring 2020 and have a deadline in early April.
Schools and Transcripts
Applicants are required to provide information about all schools where they have earned academic credit and are required to provide a transcript for each.
Applicants who have taken a prerequisite course at a school that does not have a transfer agreement with the UW (typically these are schools outside the state of Washington) will be asked to provide a syllabus and/or course description for the class. These applicants will be contacted directly after the deadline passes or can email this information at any time to email@example.com.
Applicants will provide information about the prerequisite courses. If the prerequisite course was taken at the UW, the student will select that option in the application. The system will automatically pull the course and grade information into your application. If more than one course was taken that will fulfill the prerequisite requirement, the system will automatically select the course with the highest grade.
The formatting and guidelines for the Informatics application are under review with the Admissions Committee. Updates to this page will occur by mid-February.
