For Current UW Students:

To Register for a Class:

Please follow the instructions for the Student Registration process at: http://www.washington.edu/students/reg/regprocess.html

To Audit a Class:

Students may audit courses with permission of the instructor. You must have a STUDENT STATUS in order to audit a course, and you must pay regular tuition fees (unless requesting a faculty/staff tuition exemption). Please see the UW policy on auditing at: http://www.washington.edu/students/reg/audit.html

For Returning UW Students:

Applications and information for returning students are available at: http://www.washington.edu/students/reg/returning.html

For Current UW Employees (Faculty/Staff/Other):

Admission:

Eligible Current UW Employees who have never attended the UW can apply for admission as a non degree seeking student by completing a Nonmatriculated Admission Application for the Tuition Exemption Program. This form is located at: http://depts.washington.edu/registra/forms/nonmatricadm.pdf.

To Request the UW Employee Tuition/Exemption Benefit, and you DO NOT intend to apply to a graduate academic program at a later date:

Please follow the process at: http://www.washington.edu/students/reg/tuition_exempt.html You should then submit a completed Faculty Staff Tuition Exemption Request form (Form UoW 1374) (website: http://depts.washington.edu/registra/forms/UoW1374.pdf) to the Registration Office, 225 Schmitz Hall, Box 355850, Seattle, Washington 98195-8580, at least ten days before the quarter begins. A separate tuition exemption form must be submitted each quarter. The request must be submitted by the quarterly deadline listed in the Academic Calendar (the website is at: http://www.washington.edu/students/reg/calendar.html).

If you are a current UW Employee but DO wish to apply to an academic program at a later date,

you will need to apply to take courses as a Graduate Nonmatriculated student (GNM). Applications and instructions are available on-line at: http://www.outreach.washington.edu/nondegree/register/

Admission for Non-UW Individuals (basically, anyone from outside the University), and you DO NOT plan to apply to an Academic program,
