Apply Anytime!

UW Colleges Online follows a rolling admissions deadline, which means that when a student's application file is complete, it is reviewed and a decision regarding admission is made by the UW Colleges Office of Admissions.

Early applicants have an advantage in obtaining academic counseling, financial aid and their preferred schedule of courses. High school students are encouraged to apply early in their senior year. 

Applications are accepted after September 15 for spring semester, summer term or the following fall semester.
