It’s almost time to register for winter quarter! If you haven’t already done so, consider making an appointment with an FYPMP advisor to talk about classes. Let’s go over how and when you can register.

How your registration date is selected
There multiple factors that decide when your registration date will be, but students who are closest to graduating will be able to register first. This ensures they get the necessary credits to graduate on time. You will love this rule later in your college career.

Quick Questions: 10 Minute Drop-In Advising

Do you have a quick question? Drop-in advising hours are available 10am – 12pm Monday-Friday, and also at 1-3pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Please note that drop-in advising is designed for questions that are approximately 10 minutes.

How to Register:

  • Find your registration date. Have your student number handy and see where you fall on the schedule. You can register as early as 6:00am on your registration day, and most students set an alarm to register at this time. Courses fill up quickly, so consider signing up at 6:00am. (You can always go back to bed after!)
  • Pick out your schedule ahead of time. Consider writing down the SLN numbers of the courses you plan to take, this way you just have to type in the numbers and hit “Register”.  The SLN number is on the Time Schedule. It’s the 5 digit code on the left hand side next to the title of the class. Also write down some alternate courses to use as backups, just in case a class you want is full.
  • If a course you want is full, keep an eye on it. Students often change their schedules before the first day of the new quarter. You can sign up for Notify.UW to receive alerts when a seat opens up in a specific course. Don’t forget, you can change your schedule as much as you want before the quarter begins!
  • If you are asked for an add code while adding a course, this simply means you must first speak with the instructor and get their permission to be enrolled in the class. You can download an add code form for FYPMP courses online, and once the professor has signed them, bring them to an advisor.
  • Co-requisite: If a course you are trying to add says co-requisite, this means you must take an additional course in the same quarter. To add these types of courses, you must input both SLN numbers at the same time before hitting the register button.
  • Once you have your schedule, print a copy to carry around with you. This way, you will have easy access to the times and locations during your first week.
