About UW Tacoma
Earn a prestigious University of Washington diploma in a small-campus environment where you won’t get lost in the crowd. A UW degree links you for a lifetime with the benefits of the University of Washington’s 150-year international reputation for exemplary teaching and research. Classes are rigorous, but students feel a strong connection to faculty at UW Tacoma, where small class sizes offer the opportunity for individual attention. Along with a vibrant campus life, you will enjoy the chance to get involved in research, community projects, mentoring programs, study away and internships. Our campus is located in the middle of a flourishing city, surrounded by museums, cafes, stores, coffee shops and transportation—and by the incredible beauty of the Puget Sound and the mountains of the Pacific Northwest.
The International Student Services office at UW Tacoma serves international students with immigration and visa advising, programming, and support. We believe a student body rich in diversity — culturally, socially and economically — contributes significantly to a dynamic and energetic learning community for all students.
Am I an international student?
If you need a student visa (F-1 or J-1) to study in the U.S., you are considered an international student for admission to UW Tacoma.
