Seattle University has been addressing and responding to the rapidly changing circumstances with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic both globally and in our region. Our thoughts are with everyone affected, and we hope that you stay safe.
We know you have questions so we have compiled relevant admissions information during this extraordinary time. While you will not find us on campus these days, we are working remotely and remain available to help. Please continue to monitor this page for additional updates in the coming weeks and months.
Good news! Since every bit helps, we are now waiving the $55 application fee for Fall 2020 applications.
We recognize that many universities in areas impacted by COVID-19 are currently closed and students may be unable to obtain transcripts and other academic credentials at this time. Currently, we can review and make admissions decisions with unofficial copies of transcripts. Attach scanned copies with your application or email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have already submitted an application.
For prospective students navigating graduate application requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic, the GRE and GMAT testing requirements are now considered optional as of April 9 for anyone applying to a non-law graduate program that begins in the 2020-21 academic year. (Summer 2020 through Spring 2021). Two exceptions remain in place. A test will still be required if you have a bachelor's degree from a non-graded institution or you have earned the equivalent of a 3-year bachelor's degree overseas.
Choosing to include a GMAT or GRE score may make your application more competitive in some situations. The Graduate Admissions team will be auditing its files and reaching out to impacted applicants regarding the change and your options. Prospective students are invited to contact Graduate Admissions anytime at email@example.com or 206-220-8010 to discuss this new policy.
Testing agencies have worked to provide alternatives to site-based tests that are unavailable currently. The latest information is noted below and we will update as we learn more.
