Application Info

By selecting a Business option as your first-choice major on your UW Tacoma application, you will automatically be considered for Freshman Direct. Learn more about freshman admissions to UW Tacoma.

Admission is competitive, and space is limited. If you aren’t admitted as a freshman, you can apply to Milgard at the end of your sophomore year. This will give you time to take the prerequisite classes that are required for admission as a junior.

Being a Milgard Scholar enhanced my life by challenging me to push beyond my perceived limitations and embrace my unique talents and abilities. The experience built up my self-confidence . . . I went from wondering if I could make a difference to knowing without a doubt that I can and will.
