Transfer Admission

A transfer applicant has attended a college or university after high school graduation (summer excluded), but has not yet earned a bachelor's degree. (Students who have already earned a bachelor's degree should apply as a post-baccalaureate student.) Transfer applicants may apply directly to a major program, or may apply as undeclared or pre-major, depending on the number of credits earned at the time of application and eligibility.

Our Admissions staff are experts at helping you plan your transfer and transition to UW Tacoma successfully. Don't hesitate to contact us at 253-692-4742 or 800-736-7750 if you have any questions or to schedule a campus visit.

The UW Tacoma serves a diverse student population, creating a rich learning environment with many points of view. That means you'll feel at home whether you're fresh from community college or have been out of school for a few years, and whether school is your full-time occupation or you're pursuing your degree while juggling other responsibilities.
