Hi all collegeconfidential member !
I'm 2 years student from Community College.I just got my accepted letter from Uw Tacoma and my unofficial transcript load yesterday. I applied to UW as a transfer student and I applied for computer engineering. But on my unofficial transcript said "pre major".
So I don't know that I got accepted into department or just general admission?
Thank you ! Also, you will be able to check your unofficial transcript when your status on myuw change from initial review to has been reviewed.

    Congrats! Did you apply to Seattle too or just Tacoma?

    I'm pretty sure getting "pre-major" on your transcript just means that you aren't in a specific branch just yet.
    For example, I got pre-engineering after applying for comp sci. Think it just means that you have to still take the pre req classes in order to apply for the actual major.

    @curiousgall I did apply to Uw Seattle as well, but I believe that they will respond in late May or middle June ( just 2 more weeks)
    @KJ2016 Yes, I just contacted the advisor today, and they said that I have to apply for department. The general admission and department are 2 different applications. Do you think it's to get into computer engineer department ?

    Congrats! I applied to UW Tacoma. My un-official transcripts loaded today. I saw student ID and some other info too. Similar to you, I saw that they ordered me as Fre- Major. I dont know what does that mean

    @nguyenvuong did you submit your application for the department as well? and yes, for UW tacoma, you need to submit 2 separate applications for CSE major.
    @Awesomely1122 sadly, for CSE department in UW seattle , we only hear back late July, some cases in middle of August. Lol lol
