Registration Eligibility

Students in Good Standing

All students at the University of Washington Bothell who remain in good standing and in compliance with other rules and regulations are guaranteed the opportunity to register each quarter as long as they maintain continuous enrollment (summer quarter excepted). Continuation must be in the same classification, e.g., undergraduate, postbaccalaureate (fifth-year), graduate, etc. Once a student earns a baccalaureate degree, he or she must apply for admission as a post baccalaureate (fifth year), nonmatriculated, or graduate student. Exceptions to the guarantee are:

  • Students under disciplinary action
  • Students with a registration hold
  • Students not meeting their departmental continuation policies
  • Students not meeting the University's satisfactory progress policy.


Priority Registration/Continuing Students

Currently enrolled undergraduate students or undergraduate students who are quarter-off eligible should register according to the Priority Registration Schedule. Priority registration dates are based on completed credits, currently registered courses (as of two days prior to the first day of registration), and the last digit of the student number. The student number priority is changed each quarter so that all students have the earliest possible priority every other quarter.

Registration Holds

A registration hold is placed on a student's record if he or she has not met a particular enrollment requirement.  It will stop a student from registering and the hold will not be removed until the problem is resolved. For instance, once a student has completed 105 credits at the University, the Office of the Registrar will place a registration hold until the student has either declared a major area of study or has requested a pre-major extension.
