Learn about the MHCI+D Program. Explore the information available on this website and elsewhere to learn about the program and how you might succeed here. We are looking applicants who know how their background and this program fit well together.
Start preparing your personal statement and supplemental materials. These pieces will take the most work, and if you begin early you will have time to put together a stronger case for your admission.
Get transcripts from each college or university attended. Download unofficial transcripts or scan printed copies; you will need them for the UW Graduate School application (Step Two).
Identify people who are willing to write letters of recommendation for you. Three letters of recommendation are required to apply. Consider current or former employers or supervisors, as well as former teachers. Make sure the people you choose can judge your capacity to undertake graduate studies. You will need their email addresses for the Graduate School application.
GPA preparation. Identify the method you will use to calculate your GPA, and the conversion you will be performing if necessary. You will be asked to report this GPA on the application form itself.
After the application is available, in October, start your online application to the UW Graduate School. Create an applicant profile. Your login and password will allow you to save your application and return to it later.
