Registration Eligibility

Registration at the University of Washington is a web-based service, available on MyUW. All students1 at the university who remain in good standing and comply with other rules and regulations, with no outstanding financial obligations, are guaranteed the opportunity to register each quarter as long as they maintain2,3 continuous enrollment.
