Non-Degree Student Options
The GNM option offers students with a BSEE background a chance to take graduate level courses to update their skills and knowledge. A maximum of 12 GNM credits can be applied toward a Graduate Program.
The NM option offers students not in a degree program a chance to take undergraduate courses. NM credits cannot be applied toward Graduate Programs.
Students from another university may apply to visit EE for up to one year and earn credits toward their degree at their home institution.
The VISIT Program permits students pursuing degrees at universities outside of the US to participate in full-time supervised research and work-based learning experiences at the University of Washington for a period between 1 to 12 months.
The VISER Program permits students pursuing degrees at foreign universities to engage in a full-time prescribed course of study with a specific educational objective at the University of Washington for a period between 13 to 24 months.
VISER students must either be substantially (at least 51%) supported by their home government or home university, or be part of a written exchange agreement between the UW and the foreign educational institution. Please note that VISER students may not engage in employment of any kind.
