The University of Washington Bothell waives tuition for Washington residents if you are sixty years or older, and wish to attend classes as an auditing student. You may enroll as an ACCESS student and attend class with the permission of the instructor (beginning the first class day) if space is available.
Since you are auditing the course(s), you do not receive credit and are not expected to do any class work, participate in discussions, or take examinations. Your registration may be canceled at the discretion of the instructor. You may register for all courses except English 100, 101, 102, Math 098, UW Extension, Distance Learning, studio, laboratory courses, and honors sections. You may register in 500 level graduate courses with the approval of the instructor by obtaining an entry code through the department. A transcript is not maintained. You may take up to two courses per quarter.
Courses marked with a greater than sign (>) require an entry code to register.
- Contact the offering department to obtain entry codes
- Come to the Registration Office, Husky Hall Welcome Center.
- A $5.00 registration fee and a pro-rated technology fee will be billed if registration in a course(s) is completed.
How to Register
Register in-person, by mail, or by email at the Registration Office, located at the Husky Hall Welcome Center, beginning the third day of the quarter.
