Registration & Add Codes

Registration best practices

  • Know your registration date and register early. Registration begins at 6:00am on your registration date.
  • Speak with your advisor before your registration date. This ensures that the classes you will be registering for will meet your degree requirements.
  • Refresh your degree audit after you register for your courses to make sure everything is fulfilling the correct requirements.

CSS 142 & 143 co-enrollment requirements

Registration for CSS 142 and CSS 143 requires co-enrollment in a CSSSKL section. Please be sure to register for BOTH sections at the SAME TIME.

Registration difficulties

If you are experiencing technical difficulties, please email cssadv@uw.edu with your student number and the SLN (5-digit registration code) of the class you want to add. The most common issue students experience is the system failing recognizing your prerequisite courses.

Registration restrictions

Depending on your status, you might lack the ability to register on your own. Please read carefully below. If you have questions, you are welcome to see a CSS Advisor in DISC-352 or email at cssadv@uw.edu.

Waitlist Request Form

You may request a spot on the waitlist only when a course has filled. The course will appear on the Waitlist Request Form when the enrollment cap is reached.

Access the Waitlist Request Form

Students will be manually registered for full courses on or after their registration date as indicated above in the order that they made their requests. We will notify you when your space becomes available.

Pre-major students are not eligible to take upper division CSS courses (300-400 level) unless specified in the course description, but may fill out this form for 100-200 level courses during any registration period. 

This form is to request to be placed on waitlists for undergraduate CSS courses only. Graduate-level courses are managed by the CSS Graduate office, and can be contacted at cssgrad@uw.edu.

If you have any questions about the Waitlist Request Form, or want to check your place in the queue, please contact the CSS Advisors at cssadv@uw.edu.
