Conditional Application for Admission

If you are unable to finish all of your application requirements by the April 10, 2021 deadline, or all of the enrollment requirements by Autumn 2021 (late September 2021), you must obtain permission to apply from the department by completing the following form.

How to submit a conditional application request

Submit the online conditional application request form prior to completing your engineering application to allow time for your request to be reviewed. Be prepared to provide the following information:

  • The missing course (s)
  • Where and when the course will be taken
  • Your contact information and UW ID number, if available
  • Transcripts

If approved, students may apply for admission pending the completion of the requested requirements. Please allow 48 hours for a reply, although we will aim to reply as soon as possible after you have submitted the form.
