Full payment must be made at the time of registration, which takes place at the beginning of the course. There are no refunds for UWHS courses. Students generally have three to four weeks to return their registration forms with payment attached to their teacher. Students must register in the UW quarter in which the high school course begins.
2012–2013 Registration Deadlines
For the 2012–2013 school year, registration forms must be postmarked by October 12, 2012, for first semester and year-long courses; February 15, 2013, for second semester courses; and April 19, 2013, for spring trimester courses.
Registration Confirmation, UW Student ID Number, and More
After registration is complete, UW Educational Outreach Registration Services mails each student a confirmation to their home address — not to their school address. Students should keep this document. It contains the student’s permanent UW identification number, course information, and is a receipt for payment. It also provides access to the UW Libraries.
If you are a student and have lost your Student ID Number, please contact Registration Services at (206) 543-2310.
Setting Up a UW NetID and a MyUW Account
Once students have registered for a UWHS course, they will receive information by mail describing how to create a UW NetID and a MyUW Account.
Registration for a UWHS Course Establishes a Permanent UW Record
By registering for a UWHS course, students establish a permanent UW record. Participating students will receive a permanent UW student ID number and any grades received are recorded on a UW official transcript. Failure to withdraw from a course through UW Educational Outreach Registration Services by the deadline may result in a permanent UW grade of 0.0.
Satisfactory/Not-Satisfactory Grading Option
Students may elect to take a course on a satisfactory/not-satisfactory (S/NS) basis. At the University of Washington a course in which an S is earned may not be used to satisfy any department, college, or University requirement, except that the credits may be applied to the minimum of 180 credits required for graduation. Instructors report numerical grades to the Registrar, who will convert satisfactory grades (2.0 or greater) to S, and unsatisfactory grades (less than 2.0) to NS for the student's transcript.
To request the S/NS grading option a student must email email@example.com with her full name, UW Student ID number, course name, the courseís six-digit registration number and a statement indicating she wishes to change her grading option to S/NS. The deadline by which such requests must be made is December 7, 2012, for first semester courses; March 15, 2013, for year-long courses; May 3, 2013, for second semester courses; and May 10, 2013, for spring trimester courses.
Withdrawing from a UWHS Course
Students who decide not to complete a UWHS course must make an official withdrawal request in writing to UW Educational Outreach Registration Services. There is a specific time limit for withdrawing from a course, and failure to withdraw from a course by the appropriate deadline may result in a permanent UW grade of 0.0 recorded on their UW official transcript.
