Eligibility Criteria

  • Direct Admission. The department enrolls up to 35 percent of its incoming class directly from high school. Students accepted to the UW who indicate bioengineering as their preferred major on their freshman application are considered. Strong applicants have completed chemistry, biology, and calculus in high school. Admission is for autumn quarter only.
  • Early Admission. Students enrolled at the UW are eligible to apply at the end of the freshman year if they have completed and earned at least a 2.50 GPA in the following courses: MATH 124, MATH 125, MATH 126; CHEM 142, CHEM 152, CHEM 162; and 5 credits of English composition. A 2.50 GPA guarantees consideration but not admission. Application deadline is July 1 for autumn quarter admission.
  • Upper Admission. Requires 63 credits of coursework with at least a 2.50 GPA: MATH 124, MATH 125, and MATH 126; CHEM 142, CHEM 152, CHEM 162; CHEM 223 or CHEM 237; PHYS 121, PHYS 122; BIOL 180, BIOL 200; AMATH 301; and 5 credits of English composition. Any of BIOL 180, PHYS 122, and AMATH 301 may be in progress at time of application. A 2.50 GPA guarantees consideration but not admission. Application deadline is February 1 for spring quarter. Consult the department's website or adviser for more details.
