Thinking about transferring to the UW? If you are, Transfer Thursday is your gateway to transfer information.

You can also meet with an undergraduate academic advisor who will help you prepare for your intended UW major. Bring your questions and your unofficial transcript(s). It’s one-stop shopping for the prospective transfer student.
