Winter Quarter 2016 Advising & Orientation

Winter quarter will begin January 4th, 2016.  All incoming first year and transfer students must attend a mandatory half-day orientation program before they can register for classes.  We have several sessions to choose from, beginning in early December and ending in early January.

Orientation Registration Available November 1st

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.
