Welcome to the University of Washington Tacoma!

New Student and Family Programs is your resource for your transition to the University of Washington Tacoma. Whether you are a new student just out of high school, transferring from another college or university, or coming back to school after some time away, we are dedicated to helping you stay, succeed, learn, grow, and graduate. If you are a parent, family member or supporter, we are also your first stop for learning about your role as a vital support figure in the life of your student and your involvement as a member of our extended Husky Family.

We are here to both facilitate the successful transition of new students to UW Tacoma, and to improve the success and quality of the first-year experience for students. New Student and Family Programs collaborate across the UW Tacoma campus to provide service enhancing students' education experience while aiding in their continued growth and development.
