Transcript Submission Change
You are required to upload a copy of your unofficial college transcript(s) as part of your engineering application. If you still have prerequisite courses in progress, you may start an application, but you will need to save it and return to upload your final unofficial transcript once spring grades are posted. You will submit your application at that time.
Applicants who have already submitted an application with prerequisites in progress will receive an email in mid-June with instructions on how to submit final transcripts directly into the application system. You will not need to email a copy to SET.
Your application will not be reviewed until all prerequisite grades are received. It is your responsibility to upload an updated unofficial transcript and submit your application as soon as grades are posted.
Admissions Review Timeline
The engineering admissions committee will review applications at different points during the admissions cycle. Students may apply with prerequisites in progress through summer quarter, but applicants typically aren't considered for admission until all prerequisite courses are completed.
In April, the admissions committee will review applications from students who have completed all the prerequisites and submitted an application by March 27. We typically admit a small number of competitive applicants during the early admissions review. Offers of admission for early admits will be sent in late April.
The majority of new students will be admitted after the July 1 priority deadline. The committee will begin the admissions review process once spring grades are posted. Applicants finishing prerequisites in spring should submit updated unofficial transcripts to SET as soon as possible. We anticipate that priority admissions decisions will be made no later than the end of July.
CES and EE typically have space to admit students who are completing prerequisites in summer. We encourage summer students to apply by the June 12 deadline and submit final grades as soon as possible. If space is still available, the committee will make a final review of applications in late August after summer grades post.
Students will be notified of admissions decisions by email.
If you are not a current student at UW Tacoma, you must first apply for admission to the university. See the UW Tacoma Admissions page for information on the application process and deadlines for autumn. Once you are admitted to UWT and have a student number, you may submit your application to CES/EE. If you are not admitted to UWT, you cannot be admitted to the major.
