Undergraduate Academic Affairs

Undergraduate Academic Affairs advances and deepens undergraduate education at the University of Washington. By connecting undergraduates to the breadth and depth of the UW’s opportunities, and by creating new ways to connect, we guide students toward participating in the life of our University so they are equipped and eager for their journey ahead.

Safely gathering for summer quarter classes and experiences

Summer quarter classes, experiences and services are being offered largely in person as we continue to stay vigilant to the continued presence of COVID-19. The University strongly recommends wearing a high-quality mask, due to higher case rates in the region.
Remember: If you are sick with any illness, you must stay home.
