UW LL.M. Program Frequently Asked Questions

Admissions hide all  show all

  • When are admissions decisions made?
    Asian Law, Global Business, Sustainable International Development, and General: For international students, we make admission decisions immediately after February 1, and we try to notify applicants by the end of February. Domestic students are generally notified in May.

    Health, Intellectual Property, and Taxation: We accept applications on a rolling basis, so our response time varies. After the February 1 deadline, we will notify applicants of admissions decisions 4-6 weeks after their completed application has been submitted.
  • How will I be notified of a decision on my application?
    After you have been admitted to the program, you will receive an email and an official offer letter of admissions from the School of Law. The decision will also be reflected on your Graduate Application Status Page.
  • If I am admitted, am I required to submit additional documents?
    The Graduate School will notify all applicants who are admitted and accept our offer of admissions which undergraduate and/or graduate official transcripts the applicant must submit.
  • If I am admitted, am I required to pay an enrollment deposit?
    Admitted students are required to submit a confirmation deposit of $500 USD. The deposit is nonrefundable, but will be applied to the student’s first quarter course fees. Instructions, including the due date for submitting the deposit, will be emailed to the student shortly after confirming their intention to enroll in the program.
  • If I am admitted, is it possible to defer my arrival until next year?
    If you have been admitted, you are allowed to defer your application once during the academic year. Contact your graduate program directly and have them send a petition via our admissions system to the Graduate School requesting the deferral.
