Admissions decisions will be communicated via email. If admitted, follow the next steps listed in the email. If admitted and you do not accept the offer by the deadline stated in the email, you will not be admitted to the major and will need to reapply in a future admission cycle.  

2) Entering Transfer Students:  
Direct-to-major transfer applicants must submit a separate DEPARTMENTAL APPLICATION for the same quarter for which they submit an application to UW Seattle. For more information about the University of Washington Transfer Application, visit https://admit.washington.edu/apply/.
- Transfer students need to have applied to UW for the Autumn quarter of entry before applying to the AMath/CFRM major. Be sure to list AMATH, AMATH-DS, or CFRM as your first or second choice major. Include relevant information from your UW application in your departmental application. We do not have access to your UW application when reviewing your submission for the major.
After applying to UW and receiving your application acknowledgement letter from the Admissions Office, set up your NetID. This process can take several days. You will use this NetID to log in to the AMath/CFRM application.
