Informatics Registration FAQ for Newly Admitted Students
Q: Can I register for Autumn quarter classes immediately after being admitted?
A: No. Students who have confirmed their offer will be allowed to register for INFO courses on Tuesday, May 19, at 10 a.m. While MyUW may allow you to register before then, newly admitted students who register for classes before then will be dropped from the class and will need to re-register after that opening time.
Q: Do I need add codes to register for Informatics classes?
A: No, as long as you meet the prerequisites stated on the time schedule.
Q: What if I don’t get the classes I need?
A: Most first-year student classes will be offered every quarter during 2020-2021, so there will be multiple opportunities for you to take the classes you need. If you have questions about academic planning, please don't hesitate to email email@example.com or make an appointment with an advisor.
Q: What if I don’t get the specific course sections I prefer?
A: Many students change their schedules up until the quarter starts. So even if you don’t get into the classes/sections you want right away, things can change in the coming weeks and months.
Q: I have a lot of credits. What if I can’t get all the classes I need?
A: Once we've admitted you to the program, we are committed to helping you complete it. We will work with you to remove any holds or blocks that might be caused by your high number of credits.
Q: I’m a transfer student. What do I need to do to register?
A: As part of your admission to the UW, you should complete the online U101 training to learn to register for classes. You will be able to formally register for classes once you attend a transfer advising and orientation (A&O) session. We recommend that you register for the June 29th A&O session. If there are specific classes you are concerned will close before your orientation date, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: I haven’t taken INFO 200. What do I do?
A: If you haven’t yet taken INFO 200, please plan to take it this autumn. Register for INFO 200 B (SLN 16525) and section BC (SLN 16526). (This section is limited to INFO majors, so you’ll be able to register without an add code.)
Q: I have a conflict with a class I need to take. What do I do?
A: Look for other options or consider adjusting your schedule or other commitments (work, volunteer, etc.). If you are at an impasse, send an email to email@example.com. When you send the email, please be as clear as possible and provide your name, student number and specific days, times, sections and/or SLNs.
