International students are strongly encouraged to submit all admissions materials by December 15 to ensure a timely admissions review process.

We will continue to accept international applications until the January 15 deadline; however, we can guarantee that there will be time for sufficient review only for applicants who submit their applications by December 15.

At minimum, we request that you submit your TOEFL scores and transcripts by December 15, although this information will continue to be accepted until January 15. All materials must arrive no later than January 15.

Please note that the University of Washington Graduate School is phasing out usage of IELTS. IELTS scores with a test session date after May 31, 2017 will not be accepted. Please contact the admissions team at or 206-543-4900 if you plan to submit IELTS scores.
