Submission process

The 2024 College of Engineering admission application will open in late March but you can notify us about your conditional request now. Submit the online conditional application request form prior to completing your engineering application to allow time for your request to be reviewed. Be prepared to provide the following information:

  • The missing course(s)
  • Where and when the course will be taken
  • Your contact information and UW ID number, if available
  • Transcripts
  • (optional) Information on why you may not have been able to meet the application requirements or enrollment requirements

If approved, students may apply for admission by the April 5th deadline and may be offered conditional admission.
