International applicants

International/non-native U.S. applicants to our BSN or ABSN programs must meet the University of Washington undergraduate requirements for international applicants in addition to the nursing program requirements:

International applicants include any F-1 student visa or any other type of temporary, non-immigrant visa.

Transcript Evaluations

You must send foreign transcript evaluations for any college or university you have attended outside the United States. To meet UW Graduate School requirements, this must be done through World Education Services (WES) International Credential Advantage Package (ICAP).

Send official foreign transcripts to WES for a course-by-course U.S. equivalency report. Have the evaluation reports sent to you to upload to your application.

Include only completed foreign transcript evaluations. Do not include your original foreign transcripts.

You do not need to submit a foreign transcript if you attended a foreign university through a study abroad program and the credits appear on your school’s transcript, but you must submit a foreign transcript and evaluation if you are using a course taken internationally as a prerequisite course.
