Summer 2022 Registration Change Guide (Important Deadline Corrections)

This message is being sent to all students across the University of Washington who are registered for Summer 2022.

Dear University of Washington students,

This guide provides information about adding, dropping, or withdrawing from any or all of your Summer 2022 courses. You may not need these instructions until later in the quarter, so hold onto this email for future reference.

We strongly encourage you to consult with your adviser or advising team before making any of the following changes.

Carefully review these instructions, deadlines, and links. Beginning June 28, Full-term and A-term, and beginning July 28, B-term there will be a $20 Change of Registration fee associated with any kind of change to your Summer 2022 registration, with a maximum of $20 charged per day.

Summer 2022 Registration Changes

UW Academic Calendar 2021–2022

Review the University of Washington 2021–2022 Academic Calendar, especially the “Adding/Dropping Courses or Complete Withdrawal” section for Summer 2022 deadlines.

Time Conflicts

If you register for two classes that meet for any portion of the same class time, it is your responsibility to meet the requirements of each course in terms of exams and instructor expectations.

Request a Religious Accommodation

It is the policy of the University to reasonably accommodate students’ religious observances. Learn more about the Religious Accommodations Policy.
The accommodation request deadlines for Summer 2022 are:
Full-term and A-Term: Friday, July 1, by 5 p.m.
B-term: Friday, August 5, by 5 p.m.

Drop Courses from Your Schedule

Review the tuition forfeiture policy when considering course drops — you may not get all your tuition back depending on when you drop.

Through End of Week 1
Full-term: Through June 27
A-term: Through June 27
B-term: Through July 27
No fee charged. Course drops do not appear on your transcript.

Add and drop courses freely using MyUW. If you drop all your courses, a withdrawal statement and the date of withdrawal will be posted to your transcript.

Through End of Week 2 (Unrestricted Drop Period)
Full-term: Through June 24
A-term: N/A
B-term: N/A
$20 fee charged. Course drops do not appear on your transcript.

You can continue to add and drop courses using MyUW, but you will be charged a $20 Change of Registration fee for all registration changes made on a single day. If you drop all your courses, a withdrawal statement and the date of withdrawal will be posted to your transcript.

Late Course Drop Period Beginning Week 3 — Last Day of Instruction
Full-term: July 5–August 12
A-term: June 28 – July 13
B-term: July 27–August 12
$20 fee charged. Course drops appear on your transcript.

You may drop one class yourself via MyUW using the self-serve Quarterly Drop. Follow the same instructions as Week 2. To drop multiple classes or an additional class if you already used the Quarterly Drop, use the Adviser-Assisted Drop Request Process. Consult with your adviser, who will check in with you to see if you have questions about dropping classes and will then forward you request to your campus registration team to complete the request. Each dropped course will appear on your transcript with a Registrar Drop (RD) annotation.

Maintaining full-time status
If your enrollment depends on maintaining full-time status, including NCAA athletes and F-1/J-1 international students, you may not be able to use the self-serve Quarterly Drop. In these cases, use the Adviser-Assisted Drop Request.

Withdraw Completely from the Quarter

Week 3 — Last Day of Instruction
Full-term: August 12
A-term: July 13
B-term: August 12
No fee charged. Course drops appear on your transcript.

To withdraw from all your courses during this period, use the Adviser-Assisted Drop Request Process. Students may not completely withdraw after the following dates; July 13 for A-Term, August 12 for Full and B-Term. Each dropped course will appear on the transcript with an RD annotation. A withdrawal statement and the date of withdrawal will be posted to the transcript.


THROUGH Friday, August 19: End of Finals Week/Quarter
You can change the grading option of your courses to and from the Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory (S/NS) grading option via your MyUW registration page up through the end of finals week/last week of the quarter, Friday, August 19.

S graded courses do not count for degree or graduation requirements for undergraduate students.

Students may only register for up to 20 credits of S/NS through Personal Services on MyUW. If you have exceeded the 20 credit limit (which includes courses changed to S/NS grading during Extraordinary Circumstances Quarters), you may send a request for additional S/NS grading changes to

Registration Change Fee
The $20 Change of Registration fee applies each time you request a grading option change. Based on your overall financial situation, if incurring the grade change fee creates a hardship you may want to contact the Office of Student Financial Aid.

Drop Courses from a Previous Quarter

The Former Quarter Drop allows students to petition to drop courses from past quarters. This process replaces the former Hardship Withdrawal Petition. A Former Quarter Drop (FQD) may be granted by your campus registration team if you are unable to complete or withdraw from your course(s) because of extenuating circumstances beyond your control. If approved, your transcript will display an RD for those courses.

Please review the policy and eligibility requirements to determine if this is the right process for you. You may also consider speaking to an adviser to support you through this process if you have questions or need guidance with completing the FQD process.

Registrar Drop (RD) Transcript Notation

If you drop any courses beginning the third week of the quarter, your transcript will display an RD for those courses.

Set up and opt in to 2FA before Winter Registration

Before Winter 2023 registration begins, the UW will require two-factor authentication (2FA) for your UW NetID account to protect both your and the University’s information. With 2FA, you sign in first with your UW NetID and password, then use a 2FA device (such as your smartphone) to confirm your identity. If you have not set 2FA up before registration for Winter 2023 begins, you will not be able to register or access UW online systems.

Don’t wait — “lock down your login” today with the Duo Mobile app for 2FA.

If you have questions regarding any of this information, please contact your corresponding campus registration team.
