How do I apply?

UW SWE has membership application cycles at the beginning of each quarter, which are open for approximately 1-2 weeks. Please refer to the following link to apply: tinyurl.com/applyuwswe

Applications for membership are open every quarter for approximately 2 weeks and decisions will be made on a rolling basis (with the exception to this being Autumn quarter, when decisions are made altogether).
