Accreditation:The Department of Geography, through its normal degree granting processes, issues the Master's Degree in Geographic Information Systems.
International Student Requirements:Because the Professional Master's Program in Geographic Information Systems is a combination of online and on-site study, students are required to attend classes on campus in the U.S. This program is part-time and intended for working professionals. Applicants expecting F-1 student status may not apply. Application deadlines for international applicants are the same as those for U.S. students. However, we recommend that international applicants submit their applications as soon as possible before the posted application deadlines to allow for transcript evaluation. Proficiency in English is required for graduate study at the University of Washington. Applicants whose native language is other than English must meet this requirement. No waivers of this English proficiency requirement may be given. See Memorandum #8 and English proficiency tests comparison tables for the university's policy.
