Admission Criteria

Admission to Western is selective. Academic achievement - including cumulative academic record, grade trends, and nature of previous course work - is the most significant factor in the application review. Clearly defined academic goals, completion of major prerequisites and related experiences, ongoing contributions to and/or experiences with multiculturalism, special talent, personal circumstances, and space availability are additionally considered.

Minimum requirements for transfer admission include a 2.00 cumulative transferable GPA and a 2.00 in the quarters prior to application review and enrollment. Meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission as the number of applications received exceeds the number of available enrollment spaces.

Students with fewer than 45 credits must meet freshman requirements and all students should demonstrate proficiency in college level math and English. Admission priority is given to Washington state residents who transfer directly from a Washington state community college.
