Students in all UW schools and colleges must complete one 5-credit composition course in English Composition. You must receive at least a 2.0 grade in the course. The course may not be taken satisfactory/not satisfactory (S/NS).
Because the vast majority of college courses require some writing, you should plan to complete the English composition requirement during your freshman year.
The Enrollment Summary lists the current number of seats available in all courses offered by a single department. For example, if you wanted to take a psychology course, but didn't know which ones were open and didn't want to click on each course individually, you could click on "Enrollment Summary" and see the number of seats available in each psychology course.
One thing to note: the enrollment summaries for the larger departments (such as mathematics and English) may take as much as 30 seconds to appear, so be patient.
The link to the Enrollment Summary for each department is available near the top of that department's page in the Time Schedule.
Courses marked with a ">" in front of the schedule line number in the Time Schedule require an entry code (sometimes called an add code) for registration.
Entry codes are used when there is a requirement for the course that for some reason can't be programmed into the computer, or when the department wants to talk to each student to make sure your background is appropriate for the course. The Time Schedule often tells you where to request an entry code. If the information isn't there, contact the department adviser or the instructor.
Entry codes are often required only in certain registration periods. The notation ENTRY CODE PD 3, for example, means that entry codes are required in Period 3, which is the first week of the quarter, but not in Periods 1 and 2 when most registration occurs. After the first week of the quarter, all courses require entry codes.
The UW Evening Degree Program is designed for students who work or have other commitments during the day but want a UW degree.
