Once you have applied and been accepted to the University, there are still a couple of steps you must take before you can register. Registration is the process of enrolling in courses each semester.
First, the University will ask you to confirm your intent to enroll at this campus. Once you have confirmed your intent to enroll, you will receive registration information from the Student Affairs Office. All new freshmen and transfer students will be required to participate in an on-campus registration program. A student affairs or faculty advisor will help you select classes to fit your individual course of study. Specific information on the times, dates and places of registration will be provided to you by the Student Affairs Office.
Upon meeting with an advisor and determining the classes you will take for the semester, you will be guided through the process of entering your class choices into PRISM, the online student information and registration system. Once you submit your class choices in PRISM, you are registered whether or not you pay fees and tuition or attend classes. Please note: registered students may be required to pay an Advanced Tuition Deposit prior to July 15 to hold their enrolled courses.
Please see the Registration & Enrollment pages on the UW Colleges administrative website for more information about registration, hold policy, degree verification, and withdrawal.
