CUSP is the home for First Year and Pre-Majors Students at UW Bothell. We are the first place to turn for all of your academic needs, from scheduling classes and meeting faculty to discussing your future career goals.
The CUSP mission is to support the successful transition to college of First Year and Pre-Major Students and to provide the foundation on which they will continue scholarly and professional development.
