Schedule an appointment
Appointments are available for UW Seattle students and prospective UW Seattle students.
*Advising for UW Bothell and UW Tacoma students and prospective students, please see below under Drop-In Advising.
Before scheduling an appointment, please go to our website and thoroughly review the information provided. All necessary forms/applications, as well as the answers to most basic questions about the requirements and processes, can be found there. During high-demand times, appointment length is limited to 15 minutes — coming prepared with a list of specific questions will help make the most of your time.
When you arrive for your appointment, please go to the waiting area outside the 225 windows on the 2nd floor of Schmitz Hall. You do not need to check in at the kiosk. Your name will be called when it is your appointment time.
Note that submission of Residency Questionnaires, Residency Affidavits, and all tuition waiver eligibility forms should be done via the white residency drop box on the 2nd floor of Schmitz Hall or via postal mail. We will not review these documents during an appointment.
If you are not located in the greater Seattle area and need to make a phone appointment, please include this in the “your note” section of the appointment form, and be sure to include your phone number.
Important Note: If you are the parent/relative of a current or newly-admitted UW student, we will be unable to discuss that student’s residency status or application with you due to federal and state privacy laws and office policy. Please have your student schedule an appointment.
