Priority Application Dates
International students are encouraged to apply early to prevent application processing and visa delays. Apply online no later than the priority application date; however, applications will be accepted after the priority date on a space-available basis. Carefully follow the instructions in the international application checklist below. When an application for admission is approved, the university will send an official written notice of admission for a specific term.
Note: If you are applying directly to a degree program, priority application dates and program requirements vary. More information is available on the degree programs websites.

Financial documents such as bank statements are not required with the application. Students who are offered admission to the University of Washington Bothell will be required to submit financial documentation such as a bank statement or letter from the bank verifying proof of funding for at least one academic year. Click here for those estimated costs. UW Bothell will not be able to prepare your I-20 until proof of funding has been received. Additional instructions will be sent to you if you are offered admission.
Official academic records are required from all previous institutions in your education history. It is the responsibility of all applicant's to supply all required academic records. If you are requesting records from a country or institution where you may have difficulty with timeliness or issuance, please make certain you request your documents allowing enough time for them to be received for your application.
We require the document in the original language when the issuing institution cannot issue in English. If it is issued in a language other than English, we also require an English translation.
All transcripts written in any language other than English must be accompanied by a certified literal English translation in the same format as the originals. To be considered official, the translator must be certified by the American Translators Association (http://atanet.org/
) or corresponding body in the originating country, or should have a Master’s degree in Translation or Interpretation, or be completed by the issuing institution.
All supporting documents such as academic transcripts should be sent to:
