Early Fall Start What's New

Early Fall Start 2014 has concluded. Please check back this winter for 2015 information!

Incoming freshmen can earn 5 academic credits and make a smooth transition to university life one month ahead of the pack. Early Fall Start (EFS) offerings are 5-credit, month-long summer courses designed to prepare you for college success through interdisciplinary study, focused inquiry and academic writing.

EFS provides students not only the opportunity to get a jumpstart on their academic path, but also a chance to begin learning the campus, making connections and exploring all that the University of Washington offers.

You can either explore a new topic in a
Discovery Seminar or hone your writing skills in a College Writing Prep course.
