Do I need to submit transcripts as part of my application to University of Western States?
Official transcripts from each and every institution must be sent to the admissions office as part of your application. University of Western States accepts transcripts in two different methods:
Mailed directly from a prior institution to:
University of Western States
Office of Admissions
2900 NE 132nd Avenue
Portland, OR 97230
Emailed in a password protected format (such as Parchment) to email@example.com.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the transcript is downloaded by the recipient within 30 days. A printed copy of an electronic PDF transcript is not official.
If you are currently enrolled in courses but will not complete the degree until a future term, do not send an updated transcript until the degree is awarded. At that time, send an updated transcript and the degree confirmation.
After I'm accepted, can I change my start date without having to reapply?
UWS accepts students enrolling with a specific entering class and entry date. Written requests to change enrollment to a different entry term will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
