In response to current restrictions created by the COVID-19 health crisis, the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering Professional Master's Program will temporarily waive the Graduate Records Examination (GRE) requirement for admissions during the 2020-21 academic year.
Students in the PMP are among the best and brightest in the Seattle area and are chosen for their software development knowledge and proven track record for setting and achieving demanding goals.
In recent years, the Allen School has admitted between 50% and 65% of qualified applicants each quarter. In this section you can learn about the skills and knowledge that will make your PMP application competitive. We also describe the materials that are required as part of your online application package.
All PMP applicants must be living and working in the Seattle area at the time of their application in order to qualify for acceptance to the program. The PMP is part-time only. While those in the US on work visas are welcome to apply, those with student visas cannot be accepted.
The Professional Master’s Program has three* application deadlines per year:
|Application Deadline||Quarter||Quarter Begins|
|July 1||Autumn||Late September|
|November 1||Winter||Early January|
|February 1||Spring||Late March|
*No admissions or classes take place over the summer quarter.
The CSE Admissions Committee typically makes its decisions three weeks after the deadline. You will be informed of your status via email.
