Resolving Registration Issues

Prerequisite errors

If you cannot register for a B MATH or STMATH course due to a prerequisite error, and you believe you have fulfilled the prerequisite, contact the mathematics advisor, Evinn Hickey, at Please include: 

  1. Your full name
  2. Your 7-digit student ID number
  3. The 5-digit SLN (registration code) of the course
  4. The course prefix, number, and section (Example: “STMATH 390 A”). You can find these on the time schedule or through a MyPlan search.
  5. short description and/or screenshot of the issue preventing your registration​

Repeating a course

If you cannot register for a B MATH or STMATH course because you have already attempted it twice, email to set up an appointment with the mathematics advisor. Attempting a course for a third time is a petition and must be discussed with the mathematics advisor. 

Closed courses

Use the Mathematics Course Waitlist form if the B MATH or STMATH course you want to take is closed. We strongly recommend registering for a backup course while on the waitlist. Filling out the waitlist form does not guarantee a seat in a requested course. Registration prioritization is holistic (not first-come, first-serve), and your place on the waitlist may change as other students make requests. Access the form for details on the prioritization criteria. 

Waitlist requests will be reviewed on a weekly basis. If a seat becomes available for you, you will be contacted using the preferred email address indicated on your form. You will then have 24 hours to respond. If you do not respond, the spot will be offered to the next student on the waitlist. 

The waitlist will be discontinued on January 5. At that time, all B MATH and STMATH courses will be opened to their full capacity until 11:59pm on January 9. On January 10, the Late Add Period begins and instructor permission will be required to join a class. 

You must active your UW G Suite Account and be logged in to access the form:

  1. Visit the UW NetID Resources page on your MyUW account.
  2. On the UW G Suite page next to Account Status, click Turn On.
  3. Log out of Google or open a private browsing window if you are logged into your personal account.
  4. Click the link below to access the form.
  5. When prompted, log into Google using your UW email address (example: "").
