Welcome to the RN to BSN program! Complete the following steps to finalize your offer and secure your seat in the program by the stated deadline on your offer letter which is typically 20 days from the date of the offer, or sooner if the quarter starting date is approaching.

If any one of the steps is not completed by the deadline, your offer of admission may be rescinded (withdrawn) and offered to another qualified applicant on the waitlist; Don’t lose your seat!  If you need more time to complete any one of requirements, contact uwbnhs@uw.edu with your full name and provide us a date of when you’ll be able complete the step(s). Likewise, you must have completed the steps to attend the University Orientation which includes an advising session.

Requirements to Complete Within 20 Days of the Offer Date

To confirm, pay the nonrefundable $100 Enrollment Confirmation Deposit. Confirmation deposits can be paid over the phone using a VISA or MasterCard by calling the Cashier's Office at (425) 352-3246, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm or by attaching payment using the Enrollment Confirmation Form.
