Virtual Info Sessions

If you are not able to make it to our campus for an information session, this is a great opportunity to learn more about the University of Washington Bothell.

Our virtual information sessions provide you with the same general overview of our academic programs, student support services, and the application process that we give in our on-campus sessions.

Prospective undergraduate transfer students are encouraged to attend a Transfer Information Session related to their specific field of study and learn about:

  • Undergraduate admission requirements
  • Deadlines to apply
  • Application process
  • Competitive criteria
  • How courses transfer
  • High-impact learning opportunities (research, internships, study abroad, etc.)

You will also have the opportunity to discuss your individual transfer plan with our Academic and Admissions Advisors. We encourage you to bring your unofficial college transcripts if you have specific questions about your credits and coursework.

Running Start and College in the High School students are still considered First Year students, but should attend a transfer session to plan your college coursework.

Please check-in at the Welcome Desk in Husky Hall (unless instructed otherwise) for your Transfer Info Session.
