Welcome to the University of Washington! The topics on the right side of the page cover some of the basic information every UW student needs to know about academic life: registering for classes, choosing a major, grades, advising, and finances. There's also info about programs just for freshmen — Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs) and Freshman Seminars — as well as a checklist for new students.
In nearly all these subjects there is even more detailed information elsewhere in the UAA Advising website, or elsewhere on the UW website. Take some time to browse — there's a lot to learn about the UW!
As advisers, we want to work with you so you can get the most out of your time here at the University of Washington. Please feel free to come talk with us about anything you see here, or anything else; we pride ourselves on being the first, best stop if you don't know who to ask.
