Registering for Classes

You are responsible for registering for your own courses and for changing your registration as needed via the MyUW website by the appropriate deadlines listed on the Academic Calendar. The Time Schedule of Classes is typically posted online at by the 4th week of the previous quarter.

Review the Curriculum section of your graduate program website, and the quarterly Time Schedule of Classes for your required courses and elective options. You can register for courses in your program on the first date eligible. To avoid late fees, register before the quarter begins.

Add/drop deadlines, tuition schedules and deadlines, grading options, withdrawal policies, and the tuition exemption policy should be reviewed before the quarter begins. When add codes are required for course registration, contact the IAS Graduate Office.

Getting Started


MyUW is a web-based tool used for finding course schedules, registration deadlines, and many other resources at the University of Washington. You can personalize MyUW to fit your needs by including or excluding the services you see listed, adding bookmarks to your favorite links, and choosing the background and accent colors you prefer. To access MyUW, you must first create your UW NetID.


Follow the online instructions. You will be asked to choose a UW NetID as well as a password. If you need assistance setting up your UW NetID, please contact Information Technology (IT).

MyUW will prompt you to enter your PAC (Private Access Code). Please do not share your PAC with anyone. If you forget your PAC, you must visit the UW Bothell Admissions Office in person to reset the code.

Registration Procedure

Once you have created your UW NetID, log on to MyUW using your UW NetID and password. From the Student Personal Services menu on the left side of the MyUW home page, select Registration. At the beginning of Registration Period 1, the UW requires that students confirm their current address and make a decision regarding ASUWB membership.

Enter the Schedule Line Number (SLN) for each course you wish to add. In most cases, you will leave all other fields blank. To view available classes, choose Time Schedule under the Registration Resources menu. The Time Schedule will open in a separate, smaller window so you can have both windows open and toggle between them.

After making your course selections, click Update Schedule at the bottom of the Registration Screen. Your selections will be accepted only if all sections are available and there are no restrictions that would prevent you from registering (such as prerequisites). Messages will appear on the right side of the screen to alert you to any problems. Make any necessary revisions and resubmit.

After registering, you may log on to MyUW as often as you like to check the status of sections, list your confirmed schedule, add or drop courses, or check your account balance.
