Freshmen who do not enter the University as Honors Program students but demonstrate academic excellence and commitment during their first two quarters at the UW may apply to Interdisciplinary Honors in the spring of their first year.
Applicants must have at least a 3.3 UW cumulative UW GPA. Because Interdisciplinary Honors requires students to complete 47 credits of general education coursework, students who have earned an Associate's degree or have satisfied the UW's Areas of Knowledge general education requirements are not eligible to apply for Interdisciplinary Honors. You may instead be eligible to apply for Departmental Honors in your chosen major. Contact your departmental adviser for admission information and requirements.
Applicants are encouraged to attend one of the following information sessions or meet individually with an Honors adviser to discuss the Honors requirements and options. Students accepted via Second Year Admission will complete the Interdisciplinary Honors curriculum and begin their Honors coursework in autumn of their second year at the University of Washington.
Second Year Admission information sessions will be held on:
- Thursday, March 12 from noon-1 p.m., MGH 211 E (Honors Library)
- Tuesday, March 31 from 3:30-4:30 p.m., MGH 211 E (Honors Library)
If you cannot attend one of these sessions, you may schedule an individual appointment with an Honors adviser.
The online application will be available during winter quarter and is due by 5pm on the first Friday of spring quarter. Please contact an Honors adviser with any questions.
