UW Seattle campus aerial shotWe are very pleased to invite you to participate (virtually) in UW’s Graduate Visit Days on March 12-13, 2020.

After thoughtful consideration for the health and wellness of our community, under guidance from University and public health officials, we have decided to hold this event in an online-only format this year. We strongly feel it is in the best interest of all those involved.

Graduate Visit Days will still give you a chance to interact with faculty and learn more about our research from top graduate students. Visit Days will also provide you an opportunity to connect with faculty in order to discuss funding options. All of our admitted PhD students will receive guaranteed funding.
