Proof of Immunization
All enrolled students are required to provide proof of measles (rubeola) immunity. Students will not be allowed to register for any classes until the UW Tacoma Registrar's Office confirms that they have satisfied this requirement. Students born before 01/01/57 are considered to be immune to measles and therefore do NOT need to submit proof of immunity. For more information, contact the Office of the Registrar at 253-692-4913 or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Policies and Procedures
Students are responsible for knowing policies and procedures as outlined by the UW Graduate School, the Education Program, and the University of Washington Tacoma.
On-leave policy: Students will be required to complete an on-leave form and pay the fee for EACH quarter they wish to be on leave. Important links for On-leave Status:
- On-Leave policy to maintain Graduate student status
- Request for On-Leave Status
- Graduate students who are on approved leave are eligible to register for the quarter immediately following the expiration of the on-leave period.
If a student becomes inactive (does not go on-leave and does not register for any given quarter) and wishes to enroll in a future quarter, there will be a $250 reinstatement fee: Graduate request for reinstatement. Requests will first be reviewed and approved by the department. Once the department has approved the request and the Graduate School has confirmed student's eligibility for reinstatement, students will be notified to pay a non-refundable reinstatement fee before registering for the requested quarter of reinstatement. More information can be found on page 25 of the Student Handbook.
To schedule an academic advising appointment, please contact Ashley Walker, the Ed.D. Advisor (email@example.com; 253-692-4367).
