RISE UP/GEAR UP
The University of Washington’s College of Engineering is taking a significant step to improve undergraduate engineering students’ educational experiences by offering Direct to College admission beginning with the entering freshman class of 2018.
This change will assure incoming freshman students who are admitted into the college and their families that they will be able to pursue an engineering degree at the UW. It will also allow the college to more fully engage these students in an immersive engineering experience from their first day on campus, while still maintaining opportunities for transfer and other UW students to pursue engineering degrees. Approximately 800 undergraduate students receive engineering degrees from the UW each year.
