UWC-USA enrolls over 100 new students each year in our two-year program. About 25 of these students are U.S. Davis Scholars and the remaining students come from countries around the world. This means that at any given time there are about 50 U.S. Davis Scholars on campus and 175 students sponsored by National Committees or through the Global Selection Program (GSP). Potential applicants should review the Who Should Apply section of this website to determine if UWC could be right for them.

Applying for admissions at UWC-USA (and the other UWC schools and colleges) is different than admissions at more traditional boarding schools. Students do not apply to individual campuses. Instead they apply through over 160 National Committees or through a global selection process managed by the International Office.

It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

“How can there be peace without people understanding each other; and how can this be if they don’t know each other?
