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.
The University of Washington 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, transferring from another university, or returning to school after a hiatus. Our transfer students bring a range of experiences and perspectives that help make our community that much better.
We're here to help you plan your transfer to UW Tacoma. Transfer Tuesday will include information on transfer admissions, financial aid, degrees offered, and campus resources. We also offer opportunities to connect with our academic programs.
