It’s Time to Register for Winter 2023

Dear University of Washington students,

Winter 2023 registration begins Friday, November 4.

To get started with registration, review your academic plan for Winter 2023 and seek guidance from an adviser if you need assistance. Then, sign into MyUW and complete your pre-registration steps before your estimated priority registration date.

Important Reminder: 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 Friday, November 4, you will not be able to register or access UW online systems. Graduating autumn quarter and/or not planning on registering for Winter 2023? You still need to set up your 2FA to use any UW online system after Wednesday, November 2.

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

Prepare for Registration

Sign In to MyUW

Expecting to Graduate Next Quarter?

  • Be sure to contact your adviser to submit your graduation application by the application deadline, which is the third week of each quarter.
  • We are pleased to announce that your diploma name no longer has to match your UW record name! Instead, you can have your diploma issued in the name of your choice by entering your information into the Diploma Name and Address form. This is also where you will put the address where you would like your diploma mailed.
  • Complete and submit this form now to ensure that your paper diploma will reach the best permanent address after you graduate. If you have not entered information in the form when we order your diploma the information from your student record will be used to issue and mail your diploma.
