Transfer 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 button on the right side to start.

Transfer Dates:  Dates are based on your academic department and are listed when you register using the button 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:

  • Enrollment Confirmation Form (found in your Welcome Packet), 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. However, you can still sign-up 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.
