- The UW Transfer Application: If you are applying to our program as a transfer student, you must submit a UW Transfer Application in addition to our departmental application. The UW Transfer Application for Fall quarter admission opens in mid-December and is typically due in mid-February each year. If you have missed the UW Transfer Application deadline and would still like to apply, please contact our SSW Admissions team as soon as possible to explore your options.
- Transferring credits: If you are transferring to the UW from a Washington state community college, be sure to check out our Transfer Equivalency Guide to confirm which credits will transfer from your current institution to the UW and how. Please note: Human Service credits (HS) or Social Human Service credits (SHS) often do not transfer well to the University, as they are considered vocational credits instead of academic credits. If you have social human service credits and are looking to transfer to the University of Washington, please book an appointment with a BASW admissions adviser to discuss your options.
If you are a veteran, or the spouse or dependent of a veteran, check out the Veterans Education Benefits website for resources regarding financial aid, tuition assistance, residency, and more.
