How to Register


Registration at the University of Washington (UW) is completed online. New students can register once they have completed the enrollment requirements. Students should review the Prepare to Register page on how to get started.

You will register by using your UWNetID and password to access your MyUW page or using myPlan. From there, register for classes by using the five-digit schedule line number.

GRADUATE STUDENTS: It is necessary to register for a minimum of 2 credits each quarter to maintain graduate student status (with the exeption of summer - unless graduating).  International students and graduate students holding assistantships must be registered for a minimum of 10 credits. (2 credits in Summer).  

Final Quarter Registration - Graduate students should remember that they must be registered for at least two credit hours during the quarter in which they wish to graduate (including summer quarter).

It is the student’s responsibility to register during their designated registration period.  Late registration or changes to registration will result in additional registration fees.  


Some graduate level College of Education courses require entry codes. Specific instructions for obtaining entry codes are available in the course notes section of each course listing in the UW Time Schedule. For courses requiring faculty codes (independent study, internship, thesis, and dissertation credit hours), you may submit an online request


A small number of programs in the College of Education are self-sustaining or fee-based (see list below). Students in these programs will register for courses online and pay tuition through UW Professional and Continuing Education.
