International student applications should be submitted 6-9 months prior to the application quarter of entry to allow for international mail and visa processing.
Applications may be sent after the posted deadlines, but we cannot assure that they will be processed in time for the start of the term or that space will be available. The deadlines listed here are priority deadlines.
Getting to know you takes some time. We give every application thorough individual attention. Applying early also helps ensure that you don’t miss any scholarship or other financial aid deadlines.
Seattle University is on a rolling admission process for transfer students, with the exception of Nursing and Diagnostic Ultrasound students.
