Congratulations on your acceptance to UW Tacoma!
We are excited for you to join the Husky family and welcome any questions you may have as you consider your offer. Choosing a college can be stressful, yet exciting, so be sure to allow yourself adequate time to research and evaluate your options. We hope that UW Tacoma will be your destination for a rewarding college experience.
Here’s a quick checklist to follow after you have been admitted:
2018 Admitted Student Day programs have concluded. Did you miss one? Please feel free to set up an in-person or phone appointment with one of our admissions advisors. We want to be sure you have all your questions answered. Please call 253-692-4742
If you haven't already done so, create your UW NetID. Your NetID is required for orientation and registration. Instructions were sent to your email and can also be found online at: https://uwnetid.washington.edu/newid/. If you lost this email, please call us at 253-692-4742.
After creating your UW NetID, you'll be prompted to create a UW email inbox. Official messages from the University are sent only to your UW email address. Please do not forward your UW email to your personal email account. Refer to the UW Tacoma email policy for more information. It is essential that you receive and read your UW email regularly.
All newly enrolled students are required to provide proof of measles (rubeola) immunity by submitting a Measles Immunity Verification form.
Freshmen: You must request a final high school transcript from the high school registrar before high school graduation (and before school closes for the summer). Your transcript must include your final quarter grades and confirmation of your graduation. You must submit your final transcripts to UW Tacoma by July 1. If not received by July 1, a hold may be placed on your registration.
Transfer students: You must submit updated transcripts for all college coursework at least two weeks prior to your first day of instruction.
You will get a lot of valuable information, plus have a chance to familiarize yourself with campus just before classes start. More information about Orientation, including how to sign up for it, will be sent separately to you.
After you complete an Orientation you may stop by the Office of the Registrar in MAT 253 to get your photo taken and to get your student ID card. You can do this any time during normal business hours (Monday - Friday). You can also do this during Husky Orientation Week.
