The Transition School/ Early Entrance Program is once again considering applicants from the Seattle area and far afield to join the long legacy of the program, which has been providing young students with University-level learning opportunities since 1977.

How it works, in a nutshell:

Students in 7th or 8th grade (or between 12 and 14 years old) submit an online application, which lets the Robinson Center know you're collecting the required materials to be considered for a TS interview. Once your ACT scores, grade reports, and teacher recommendations are submitted, the review committee will let you know if you qualify for an interview. Around 16 of the interviewed candidates will be welcomed to the Transition School, where they will hone their skills for one year before joining the University of Washington's freshman class.


UPDATE: TS Info Sessions are FULL. If you are interested in attending as space becomes available, please join our waitlist.
