Important Application Information

The admissions committee uses a holistic approach when reviewing applications and takes into account academic performance (grades in prerequisite courses, repeated courses, overall GPA, grade trend), completion of core requirements and prerequisites, along with a personal statement providing the application committee with a compelling understanding of the student’s interest in Computer Engineering at the University of Washington Bothell.  

  • Decisions are not made until the committee receives the final grades for all required prerequisite courses.
  • Students who take a 3 credit Intro to Technical Writing (at a local community college) or HCDE 231 (at UWS) may be required to take an additional 2 credits of Composition/Writing to satisfy graduation requirements.
  • Both Programming I and II must be taken in the same programming language. There is no requirement as to which programming language is used as long as the two courses are taught using the same programming language.
