Path to UW — a Seattle Promise & University of Washington-Seattle Partnership. Path to UW seminars are an incredible opportunity for students to get a head start on their UW journey. These seminars provide a unique way to learn about what UW has to offer and get a head start on building connections with UW faculty, experiencing the UW classroom setting, navigating UW resources, and learning more about the opportunities this school has to offer. We offer two types of seminars, Academic Introduction and Academic Transition. Seminars will take place on the UW Seattle campus from Aug 20 through Sept 12, 2024.
