How to Register


In Autumn 2012, UW students gained a new online tool to help with planning their academic futures. Enhancements to MyPlan in 2015 included a registration "hand-off" process feature, which allows students to send their selected course section SLNs directly to the legacy registration system from within MyPlan.
