Registration Tips

Registration opens at 6 am on your scheduled registration date during Period 1. Register early for the best selection of classes. You can adjust your schedule at any time through the first week of classes.

  • Remember, you must register for at least one class before the quarter begins or you will be subject to a $25 late registration fee.
  • Connect with your academic advisor before selecting your courses or use the degree auditing (DARS) system to make sure you are taking the right courses for your degree plan.
  • Obtain entry codes or submit course enrollment requests from the appropriate program office for any courses requiring entry codes (indicated with a “>” in front of the SLN).
  • Take care of all university financial obligations.

The system will not permit you to register if there is a hold on your registration. Once you have initially registered, you can log in to MyUW as often as you want to check the status of sections, view your confirmed schedule, add or drop courses, or check your account balance.
