Congratulations on your acceptance to UW Tacoma! We’re providing flexible options to help you join the UW Tacoma community!
Autumn 2022 orientation seat reservations will open May 4, 2022
Here are steps you need to complete to support your transition.
Required Online Steps
Immunity Verification: You are required to show that you have been vaccinated against or are otherwise immune to measles, mumps and meningococcal meningitis. The deadline is the first day of the quarter. Submit documentation and learn more here.
COVID-19: In order to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, academic personnel, staff and broader community, the University of Washington is requiring all students to be vaccinated against COVID-19, with certain exemptions allowed. Learn more here.
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.
Take any placement tests
Many students need to take a Math Placement Test and all Admitted Freshmen will receive information about completing the self-directed writing placement reflection. If you plan on taking any Spanish language courses at UW Tacoma, there is also a Spanish Placement Test.
Register for the in-person orientation
Join your fellow new husky classmates for a 2-hour session to learn more about what to expect this Autumn, learn about key resources and where to find your classes, participate in the challenge coin tradition, and be a part of our open house where you will have the opportunity to meet staff & faculty, learn where key offices are, and have an opportunity to win amazing prizes!
Freshmen & Running Start Students are required to attend our annual in-person orientation. Please contact email@example.com if you have a hardship and need to request an exemption.
Transition courses will open August 2022. An email will be sent to your UW email. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are having any difficulties accessing the course.
Transfer Students are not required to attend our in-person orientation; however, we highly encourage you to attend so you will be able to meet your fellow new husky classmates as well as receive all of the benefits we offer at our annual in-person orientation. We hope to see you there!
The Family Orientation experience takes place during the student orientation and will allow you to:
Gain more of a feel for the campus community
Learn about Campus resources
Connect with staff, faculty and current students
Learn what it means to be a Husky
