Registration Add & Drop Course Periods

When-to-Register-(3).png

 

Registration Period I 

Applies to:

  • Continuing students currently enrolled
  • Students who completed the previous quarter

Priority registration dates are based on completed credits, credits currently registered for, and the last digit of the student number.

See the Academic Calendar for your priority registration dates. Follow the links under each quarter.

The student number priority is changed each quarter so that all students have the earliest possible priority every other quarter. One half of the available spaces in each course are reserved for day two of each priority period. If a registration message states that the first day spaces are filled, then the other half will be released on day two of that priority period. Students may register using MyUW on, or after, their registration date and make changes to their schedule.

  • Newly admitted students
  • Returning former students

Notices of registration dates are emailed to newly admitted or re-admitted students. Students may register on or after the assigned date. Period I students may also register anytime during Period II.
