Request an Entry Code

Entry codes (or "add codes") are five-digit random numbers issued to you by an academic program as authorization to add a restricted course section. Entry codes are not transferable.

Academic programs reserve the right to require entry codes whether or not the course is so designated in the time schedule. Usually, information on where to obtain entry codes is found with the listings in the Time Schedule.

Instructor permission and program approval are required when a class is full. For reasons of public safety and instructional quality, course enrollment in each section will be limited to the approved classroom capacity first. If there is physical space available and the student has the instructor’s permission, we will issue a code. We do not keep waiting lists for courses. You must forward the instructor’s email indicating permission to busentry@uw.edu with your name and student number. If openings become available, you are free to register without a code.

Entry codes are only valid once and for a limited period of time after they have been issued. If you drop a section that required an entry code to add, you must request another entry code if you wish to re-add the section.
