  1. What is the evening degree program?

    Transfer students who work or have other commitments during the day can complete a bachelor's degree in the evening through this program. Students can choose from five majors. To apply you must have completed 75 transferrable credits. You can apply when 60 credits have been completed, if at least 15 are in progress. Call 206-543-6160 or e-mail advisers@pce.uw.edu to speak with an adviser about admission qualifications. Or schedule an appointment with an adviser.

  2. Is there a difference between an evening degree and one completed during the day?

    Graduates earn a UW degree. Academically, the only differences between the day and evening programs are the availability of majors and the times classes meet. Classes typically begin at 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday on the UW campus in Seattle. Many of the instructors are full-time UW faculty.

  3. How long will it take to complete an undergraduate evening degree program?

    That depends on the credits you already have and the number of classes you take each quarter. For example, a student entering with 90 credits who takes two five-credit classes each quarter including Summer Quarter could complete the program in nine quarters.

The GPA requirements are different than for the day program. Please contact an adviser at 206-543-6160 or advisers@pce.uw.edu for more information.
