Admissions Overview

Do Something That Matters

It all begins here. College is one of the most important times in your life. In the next four years, you’ll learn and grow in ways that you can’t imagine. At UWA, you’ll find our greatest strengths are small class sizes led by professors who are leaders in their fields. You’ll find lots of opportunities to really get involved, academically, socially, in service. But mostly you’ll find that UWA is like family — where people invest their lives to help you make the most of yours.

At UWA, you’ll be surrounded by people who hold your best interest 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.
