I’m using the right username and password from my online application but I’m not able to create my UW account.

Only those who submitted a paper application or who are unable to create their account with their online application username and password will receive a system key and PAC. Those applicants will receive instructions in the mail about how to set up their account.

However, you will need to provide CHI Franciscan with proof that you are enrolled in classes for upcoming quarter and your first quarter of attendance. You may request a verification of eligibility from the Office of the Registrar using this online form to receive a verification that you are enrolled with us and eligible to obtain your required vaccinations at CHI Franciscan prior to the start of their first quarter of attendance.
