Just in time for fall quarter, a more dynamic MyUW Mobile makes it easy for UW students to track registration and get details about classes, textbooks and other academic information on any mobile device. What is displayed will change as the quarter progresses, from registration and class and schedule information to links to grades after quarter’s end. UW-IT built the new platform with input from students, who said they wanted personalized content and help with time management. See Meet the New MyUW Mobile page.
