Congratulations and Welcome to Foster!

We are thrilled you are accepting your offer of admission to the Foster Class of 2026! To accept, please complete the enrollment confirmation process by the following dates:

Accept your offer

To accept, complete both steps below. Please note that we have two payments required to join the program, a $1,000 Enrollment Confirmation Deposit, and a $1,800 Orientation Fee. These payments are made separately, and both are required to secure your spot in the class. The Enrollment Confirmation Deposit and Orientation Fee are non-refundable if you later elect to not enter the program.

The $1,000 Enrollment Confirmation Deposit is a tuition deposit and will be applied to your first quarter’s tuition.

To Pay the Enrollment Confirmation Deposit (ECD), return to the Graduate Application portal and follow the steps for accepting your offer.

Log in to the Application Status page
Note: We highly recommend that you electronically save or print a copy of your enrollment confirmation deposit for your records.

The $1,800 Orientation Fee covers all activities and events offered through MBA Program Launch in the month leading up to the start of Autumn 2024 classes.

Pay The Orientation Fee by Credit Card

Note: We highly recommend that you electronically save or print a copy of your orientation fee payment for your records.

Next Steps: Join the MBA Class of 2026 Canvas Page

Once you accept your offer and both the enrollment confirmation deposit and orientation fee payment are received, we will reach out to you via email to confirm receipt and enrollment in the Class of 2026. Later this winter, you will receive detailed information regarding accessing the MBA Class of 2026 Canvas page.

Canvas is the University of Washington’s online learning platform and will serve as your onboarding toolkit to prepare you for the Foster MBA. The MBA Class of 2026 Canvas page will help keep you on track as you prepare for the Foster MBA, including tips about moving to Seattle, upcoming deadlines and to-do items, academics, career management resources, student life and events, and more.

MBA Program Launch (Orientation)

All new students are expected on campus for MBA Program Launch on August 26. Students studying on a F-1 Visa will also be required to attend International Student Orientation starting August 21. We will share the schedule for MBA Program Launch closer to the beginning of the academic year.

Please note that MBA Program Launch is for first-year MBA students and there is required programming Monday-Friday throughout September. Portions of MBA Program Launch are degree requirements, and all components set students up for academic and professional success.

It’s important to note the Full-time MBA Program’s academic calendar slightly differs from the University of Washington’s academic calendar. More information will be shared during the required Incoming Student webinars held this summer and on Canvas.

Required Summer Incoming Student Webinars

To prepare students for MBA Program Launch and the academic year, the MBA Student Affairs team will host Incoming Student Webinars this summer. Incoming MBAs are required to attend one remote session. More information and registration will be posted to Canvas later this spring.
