Some Important Information and Answers to Common Questions

Welcome and congratulations to our newly admitted RN-to-BSN applicants!  We welcome you to our program and look forward to meeting you at your New Student Orientation session.  Meanwhile though, information on this page is here to provide you some answers to common questions and concerns, as well as providing a means for Nursing and Health Studies staff to easily reach all new admits with updated information.  This page will be updated throughout the admissions season with the latest information.

Your New Nursing Student Orientation Session and Registering for Classes

Your new student orientation session is very important to complete so you can register for classes.  New Nursing students have a dedicated Nursing-student-only  orientation session scheduled shortly after new students are permitted to register for your start quarter.  Should it prove impossible for you to attend this dedicated session, you may register for a later orientation session with the Orientation Office.  More details and finalized dates will follow, but meanwhile please save the date of your dedicated Nursing orientation session:

  • New Summer students:  Tuesday April 15th, 2014; 10am-3pm, North Creek Events Center, UW Bothell Campus.    This is now firm
  • New Autumn students: Thursday July 17th, 2014 (this is now firm); time TBA

Have You Completed Your FAFSA for Your Financial Aid?

FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is the application you complete to start the Financial Aid process at University of Washington Bothell.  The application for the 2014-2015 school year is available after January 1, 2014, and should be submitted by mid-February in order to reach the UW system by the priority application deadline of February 28, 2014.  The FAFSA is available from the FAFSA web site.  Information about the UW Bothell campus financial aid process is available from the Financial Aid and Scholarships department.  If you miss the priority deadline, just apply as soon as possible.
