Students who intend to re-enroll at the University of Washington after an absence of more than one quarter should review and complete the following steps in order to facilitate a smooth return to the University of Washington Tacoma.
The checklist information presented on this page applies to the Returning Student Re-enrollment Process for matriculated students at the Tacoma campus only.
Log into MyUW to check eligibility to enroll or whether to complete the re-enrollment process. Students who have been absent more than one quarter (excluding summer quarter) need to complete the re-enrollment process.
Consult with your academic advisor and discuss your plans to return. Students previously enrolled in an academic program with restricted enrollment and/or special admission requirements should consult their advisor about procedures for returning to the same program.
Be advised that students returning to the University may not necessarily be readmitted under their previous residency classification. It is highly suggested that students check their tuition statement to ensure the tuition rate and fees are charged correctly. Students should be prepared to complete any necessary application and and provide copies of documents required to correct their classification with the Office of the Registrar.
International students returning to the UW who require an I-20 (F visa) or DS-2019 (J visa) should contact International Student and Scholar Services to request new immigration documents once your returning student request has been approved.
