Due to some technical difficulties, the online application for the UW Academy is not open yet. We apologize for this delay and are working to open the application as soon as possible!

Luckily, there is a lot that you can be doing right now to prepare your application for submission, beyond starting the online profile and application. These include:

I. Registering and preparing for the SAT or ACT. See our application calendar for registration deadlines.

II. Start asking for letters of recommendation. You need two recommendations and can request up to two more optional recommendations. See our application guide for more instructions. Please plan ahead! Teachers and other mentors often really benefit from hearing about the UW Academy ahead of time.

III. Start working on your application essays. Read the application essay prompts and look at our writing strategies tip sheet to get a sense of what we are looking for. We highly suggest that you work on these prompts before the writing workshop on January 20, 2020.

Finally, to keep track on what you have worked on please refer to our application checklist.

Please subscribe to the listserv for updates on our application opening date. Please go to the UW Academy homepage.
