Application information

Find out about requirements, fees, and deadlines

First-year

A first year applicant is a student who will be graduating from high school, or a student who has graduated from high school, but not yet completed any college or university coursework. If you complete college coursework through a dual enrollment program like Washington State’s Running Start Program, you will still be considered a first year applicant. For more details including requirements and deadlines, please visit our website.

Additional Information

Nearly 90 percent of Seattle University students receive financial aid, which adds up to $125 million in scholarships, grants, loans and employment assistance annually. Students who complete an admissions application to Seattle University are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships, which begin at $8,000 . These scholarships are renewable for up to four years and are based on the information in the admissions application, not family finances. And we guarantee that any amount you receive as an institutional gift will remain constant for all four years you’re eligible at SU. We know how important investing in a Seattle University education is to you and we’re ready to help you make it happen. Learn how to apply for financial aid at our financial aid website.

Our campus visits typically begin with an information session, followed by a student led campus tour. Our information sessions are designed to give you a brief overview of the university, as well as our admissions and scholarship processes. On a campus tour, our student guides will spend an hour sharing what it's like to live and learn in our distinct urban setting.

Seattle U has exponentially expanded my worldview. It has given me the tools to examine social issues, relationships, literature, art, sciences and myself, so that I can move through my life more mindfully and more justly.
