Admissions Overview

Do Something That Matters at UWA

IT ALL BEGINS HERE. College is one of the most important times in your life. Over the next four years, you’ll learn and grow in ways that you never could've imagined. At UWA, you’ll find our greatest strength is the personal attention and support you'll receive from small classes, led by professors who are leaders in their respective fields. You’ll find plentiful opportunities to make a difference outside of class, too: academically, socially, and in service. Mostly, though, you’ll find that UWA is like family — where people invest their own lives to help you make the most of yours.

At UWA, you’ll be surrounded by people who hold your best interests at heart. You’ll find all the support you need to be successful, even as you work and play harder than you ever have. And when you finish, you’ll find the skills and experiences you’ve gained while earning your degree will allow you to pursue important work — the kind of work that matters in the lives of others.
