Application Periods & Deadlines
The Foster School of Business Admission Process
Admission to the undergraduate program of the Foster School of Business is competitive, but we encourage all who meet the minimum application requirements to apply. Besides academic criteria and writing skills, we consider applicants whose life experiences will bring to the classroom cultural diversity or unique perspectives.
If you have never attended UW as a matriculated student, you must submit two applications —one to the University and one to the UW Foster School of Business.
Admission to the Foster School is contingent upon admission to the UW, although you may apply to the University and the Foster School simultaneously.
UW admissions operates on a different timeline; deadline dates differ depending on your application status.
