Online Application for Uni of Washington

I'm applying admission to University of Washington, Seattle through online as an international transfer student.

My current school is using the semester term and usually starts from April to August for Semester 1 and from October to February/March for Semester 2. I will finish all my courses by March 2010. How do I match the semester term to the quarter term? Which field (Autumn 2009, Winter 2010, Spring 2010 and Summer 2010) should I fill in for the "Courses in Progress" section in the "Schools and Degrees" page?

For the "Prefix and Number" and "Short Title", do they mean the module code of the courses that will be used in my current school?

Can I make up a "Short Title" for the courses or I need to follow the short form for the course title we usually use in my current school?


I find that for the paper application, the DG section says "Have you already earned or do you expect to earn a postsecondary level degree (two-year, associate’s, bachelor’s, etc.)?". However, for the online application, the DG section says "Have you already earned -- or do you expect to earn -- an associate or bachelor degree before entering the University?" which does not indicate the phrase "post-secondary level degree".

I will expect to earn a polytechnic diploma which is a post-secondary level diploma by May 2010. Should I fill in it under "Degrees Earned or Anticipated (DG)" section or "Advanced Level Credit (AL)" section in the "Schools and Degrees" page?


For the "Telephone" field under the "Address Information (AD)" section in the "Address & Residency", should I include country code to my phone number or else how UW identify the telephone number is an international call from which country?

    I think it would be good to call UW admissions directly.

    I know when I studied abroad my school year was the same as yours and I still have no idea how they decided what classes would fit into what quarter, so I think it would be smart to check with someone on how they want you to turn it in.
