Registration at a Glance

Beginning with registration for Spring 2018, MFA students will register online via MyUW.

What is changing:

  • All program students register via MyUW, not UWPCE Registration Services
  • All courses on PCE time schedule available for enrollment in Registration Period 1
  • MyUW will reflect course enrollments in real time
  • Payment is no longer due at the time of registration, but on the 3rd Friday of the quarter (balance due will generally be available 4 days before the quarter begins) See Payment Procedures for details
  • All registration and payment-related communications will be sent to students via their UW email address
  • MyUW will display each student’s schedule in a single view, reducing confusion caused by the old dual system
  • Course waitlists will no longer be managed by UWPCE Registration Services
  • No more degree registration forms (transitional reg info sheets will be provided through Summer 2018)

What will stay the same:

  • Fees
  • Students with holds will be unable to register
  • All UW Academic Calendar deadlines apply
  • Add/drop processes are unchanged
  • Students must register themselves; advisors may not do it on their behalf
  • Program students may use MyPlan for organizing their course schedule, but not to register

Registration restrictions (Autumn, Winter, and Spring quarters):

  • Registration Period 1: Returning graduate students may register for any course on the PCE time schedule only.
  • Registration Period 2: All graduate students may register for any course on any time schedule, unless course-level restrictions are in place.
  • Registration Period 3: Post-bac students may register for any course on any time schedule, unless course-level restrictions are in place.
  • Restrictions do not apply to Summer Quarter courses.
