Prospective UW Tacoma Students
Potential applicants are encouraged to meet with an admissions advisor prior to applying. During the admissions process, admission advisors help match interests to the appropriate program of study, assist in successfully navigating the application process, and direct potential students to useful campus resources such as financial aid. They can also review transcripts and determine whether additional coursework is necessary for admission.
Current UW Tacoma Students
When exploring potential majors, academic advisors in the Academic Advising Center help pre-major students clarify major requirements and navigate the process for declaring a major.
