Many thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit the UW College of Education (COE). We hope that you enjoy the numerous events we have planned for you, including events sponsored by the UW Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP).
You will have several opportunities to network with other admitted students, as well as current students and faculty from the COE and various other departments and to learn about funding, housing, campus climate, and living in Seattle.
Prospective Student Days is an excellent opportunity to meet with your faculty advisor. We strongly recommend you schedule a time to meet with your faculty advisor while you are here visiting campus. To locate a faculty member’s contact information, visit the college’s online directory.
