Autumn quarter will begin September 24th, 2014. All incoming first year 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 running through September. There will be multiple dates to choose from.
To see a list of orientation dates click on the "Register Now" 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 Enrollments 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 two weeks prior to your A&O 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 March 1st for first year students and May 2nd for transfer students.
Throughout Spring Quarter, you will receive emails and phone calls from your Orientation Leader (OL). You are encouraged to get to know your OL, as they will be with you this summer and throughout autumn quarter. Beginning in September they will be organizing events and trips that you should participate in on order to get to know your classmates and the faculty/staff better. These events will also take place throughout your first quarter. In addition, reserve Sunday, September 21st for your Convocation and Welcome Day events. You will hear more about these events at your summer orientation session.
