To be admitted to the Master of Education program at the University of Washington, Bothell, applicants must simultaneously be admitted to the Graduate School of the University of Washington.

In your admission notification from the UW Bothell Education program, you will receive your student identification number, your private access code, and the name and contact information for your faculty advisor.

If you have been admitted to the Secondary Teacher Certification Pathway, you will receive registration details for the first courses you are required to take in the program. For all other Master of Education Pathways, you are informed of the appropriate course to register for your first quarter during your admissions advising.

Upon receiving notification of admission, new students should make themselves familiar with the UW Bothell Time Schedule. The Time Schedule provides up-to-date listing of quarterly credit course offerings at UW Bothell.

Conditional Admission

At the discretion of the Admissions Committee, applicants may be accepted on a conditional basis. Conditional admission status will be indicated in the notification of admission and will include all of the outstanding requirements needed for admission.

Unconditional admission status must be met by the last day of Spring quarter the first year of the program. If a student is unable to meet the outstanding requirements for unconditional admission, they may petition for on-leave status from the program in order to meet those requirements.

Transcripts for coursework completed at any campus of the University of Washington during enrollment in the program, will be sent automatically to the department and will not need to be submitted by the student.

Students must communicate directly with the Program Coordinator if and when problems arise related to the endorsement coursework or if course approval is required. If unsure about a course meeting the academic breadth requirement, the student is responsible for getting prior approval.

Enrollment Confirmation

Applicants admitted to the M.Ed. program are required to confirm their intent to enroll in the program with an Enrollment Confirmation Deposit. An Enrollment Confirmation Form will be included in your admission notification. The confirmation card and nonrefundable $250 deposit must be submitted by mail or in person by the stated deadline, to the UW Bothell Division of Enrollment Management. The deposit will be credited to you first quarter tuition fees.

Residency Status

To be classified or reclassified as a resident, for tuition and fee purposes, a student must establish a bona fide domicile in the state of Washington primarily for purposes other than educational for the period of one year immediately prior to classification as a resident.

Your Washington State residency status is indicated on your Enrollment Confirmation Form. If you are classified as a “nonresident” and you believe you qualify for resident status, you may apply for a change of status at the UW Residency web site.

Measles Immunization

All enrolled matriculated students are required to provide proof of measles (rubeola) immunity. Students will not be allowed to register for any classes until the UW Bothell Registrar’s Office confirms that they have satisfied this requirement.

Students who have questions or concerns about the measles immunity requirement are encouraged to contact the UW Bothell Registrar’s Office well in advance of their registration date. Email the UW Bothell Registrar’s Office at or call 425-352-5240

Students born before 01/01/57 are considered to be immune to measles and therefore do NOT need to submit proof of immunity.
