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 School of Nursing degree program application 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 from an approved evaluation service for any college or university you have attended outside the United States.

Send official foreign transcripts to one of the evaluation services listed below for a course-by-course U.S. equivalency report. Have the evaluation reports sent to you.

Your application will include:

  1. Original foreign transcripts with English translations (if applicable; include in your online UW MyGrad application)
  2. Transcript evaluation reports (send to sonapply@uw.edu with the Subject “Foreign Transcript Evaluation for PhD”)

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.
