For the purposes of these rules, a student is defined as any person who is or has been admitted or is or has been officially registered in courses at the University of Washington for at least one day of an academic program and with respect to whom the university maintains education records; except that a person who has applied to a unit of the university (e.g., college, department, graduate or professional program) is not considered to be a student of that unit, even if he or she is or has been attending another unit of the university, if he or she never attended the unit applied to and/or the application is denied. For most individuals, this means one day of an academic quarter.
