SPOTLIGHT: Question & Answer

Question: What is the impact (positive, negative, or neutral) of the following things on a student’s college admission possibilities?
  1. Having a W for a class
  2. Having a TA for a period
  3. Having (or not having) Art on a transcript
Answer (UW Seattle):
  • Ws should always be explained by the student or by the counselor or both. Impact will depend on context (due to illness, move, etc.).
  • TA is typically a less competitive class option unless there are special circumstances that contextualize it.
  • We will all still probably do a holistic review of the student, but the student may be denied (by some of the UCs) for not having not completed it and without explanation; we will not deny but if accepted, student will have to complete that requirement in order to graduate from the UW.

Note: This is a response from UW Seattle. It is important for students to reach out to all college of interests to understand how a grade or course impacts their admission possibilities at the school or program.
