Before you’re eligible to register, you need to submit your New Student Enrollment & Orientation Fee, confirming that you will be attending the UW in autumn quarter.

Registration Instructions

Registration for all Early Fall Start courses opens on April 1, 2021. The final deadline to register is August 19, 2021.

You must pay for your course at the time of registration. See the costs and financial aid page for details.

All Early Fall Start courses are open for registration on a first-come, first-served basis, and have a limited class size. You are encouraged to register as early as possible to ensure your spot.

Confirming Your Registration

Once you’ve registered for a course, you can confirm your enrollment by visiting MyUW. It may take several days for your course to appear.

You’ll need a UW NetID to access MyUW. You received information on how to obtain your NetID in your UW acceptance materials. See the UW NetID page for more information.

Last-minute changes to course times and locations sometimes occur. Before the first day of class, check MyUW for any updates.
