Summer & Autumn 2014 Advising & Orientation

Autumn quarter will begin September 24, 2014.  All incoming First Year and Transfer students are required to attend an orientation program before they can register for classes.  Orientation programs take place over the summer beginning in June and run through September.  There will be multiple dates to choose from.  

You must register and be confirmed to attend orientation. Click the Register Now link on the right side to start.

Transfer Dates:  Dates are based on your academic department and are listed when you "Register Now" using the link to the right.

Steps to register for a session:

1)  Complete and return the the following items to the University of Washington in the envelopes provided in your admissions packet:

  • The Enrollment Confirmation Form, including the $100 Admissions Deposit.  In addition, you will be billed another mandatory, one time $250 New Student Enrollment and Orientation Fee that will be payable with your first quarter tuition.  This fee pays for services you will receive as a new student at the University of Washington and is not refundable or transferable. 
  • Measles Immunity Verification Form. You must submit this form to the Office of the Registrar two weeks prior to your Advising & Orientation session.  If it is not received, you will not be able to register for classes. You do not need to submit your verification form to register for orientation.

2)  Check the status of your Admissions Deposit on MyUW.  It may take up to two weeks to process this payment once you mail it in.  You will need to create a UWNetID in order to use MyUW. 

3)  Once your Admissions Deposit has been processed, you will be able to register for your session on-line beginning April 1st for First Year Students and May 1st for Transfer Students.

Information for First Year Students

Throughout Spring Quarter, you will receive emails and phone calls from your Orientation Leaders.  You are encouraged to get to know your Orientation Leader, as they will be with you this summer and throughout Autumn quarter.  Beginning in June they will be organizing fun events and trips, called Husky Adventures, that you are strongly encouraged to attend in order to get to know your classmates and the faculty and staff better.  These events will also take place throughout your first quarter.  In addition, reserve Sunday, September 21, 2014 for your Convocation and Welcome Week events.  You will hear more about these events at your Summer Orientation session and through your Orientation Leader.

Math Placement:  Most First Year Students that want to take math at UW Bothell will need to take a math placement test.  Students do not need a placement test if they have AP math credit or math credit from another college.  You will want to take your math test prior to your Orientation.  You may register to take the placement tests around the state or take the placement test at the UW Bothell campus.  For a list of testing dates at UW Bothell, please see the Testing Website

Feel free to register for the state placement locations here:
