Yes. The new student enrollment and orientation fee may be deferred to your first tuition bill if you have applied for financial aid and cannot afford to pay the fee. To request a deferral, please submit a New Student Enrollment & Orientation Fee Deferralform explaining the basis for your request to the Office of Admissions.
What happens if I submit a deferral of payment?
Once you have submitted your request for deferment, you will receive an email confirmation that it has been processed. The fee will be due the third Friday of the quarter when tuition is due. If you are receiving a financial aid disbursement, and if there are funds, they will automatically be applied towards this fee. Once your approval is granted, you will be able to sign up for orientation and register for courses for the upcoming quarter that you intend to enroll. Contact the Office of Admissions if you have any questions.
What if I choose not to attend?
The NSEOF is non-refundable and must be paid even if a deferral is granted. You are advised to meet your obligation in order to prevent collection action. Your fee is due no later than the third Friday of the quarter it was approved.
To decline your offer of admission, you may use the online NSEOF tool to submit your decision.
What if I would like to attend a different quarter than the one I was admitted for?
If you choose not to enroll for the quarter in which you were admitted, you will need to request a deferral of admission. Please submit a Deferral of Admission to a Future Quarter form to the Office of Admissions. Deferments are only granted to admitted students with extenuating circumstances — situations that prevent an admitted student from pursuing the intended course of study during the quarter for which he or she applied.

Please visit the orientation website to sign up to attend a session. You must attend orientation prior to receiving your Husky ID card (Husky ID cards are issued at orientation).

Submit Immunization Records
Keeping our campus community safe
Students attending classes at the University of Washington are required to provide proof of immunity as a public health measure in accordance with Centers for Disease Control guidelines. Students enrolled in online programs are subject to this requirement.
The University of Washington requires verification of measles (rubeola) and mumps immunity. If you are under the age of 22 as of the first day of classes, you must also provide evidence of immunity to meningococcal meningitis A, C, W and Y.
Beginning on July 7, 2021, all students will need to verify their COVID-19 vaccination or declare an exemption.
Questions regarding the immunization requirement should be directed to Hall Health Center.
If you are matriculating at UW for the first time, you must prove that you are immune to certain diseases. Your requirement depends on your program of study and your age. Visit the Hall Health website to Find Your Requirement that pertains to you.Please note that if you are in the Social Work program, you will need to meet the Health Sciences Immunization Program requirements.
Summary of requirements:
Two (2) vaccinations, both administered after the age of one and given at least 28 days apart OR a positive blood (IgG titer) test result. The Rubeola measles IgM titer (blood) test is not accepted.
Students born before January 1, 1957 are considered to be immune to measles and are therefore NOT required submit proof of immunity for measles.
Please ensure the UW Immunity Verification form and your immunization record are complete. It is helpful to put your name, date of birth and student number on all photocopies of immunization records.
If you do not submit your immunizations prior to your second quarter registration date, a hold will be placed on your registration until your documentation is received. Incomplete records may cause delays in your future quarter registration process.
In the event of a measles outbreak on campus, students who have not previously submitted proof of immunity to measles may be barred from classes and other campus activities until health officials determine that there is no risk of them transmitting the disease to others.
Sources of Documentation
The best way to meet the requirement is to take the UW Immunity Verification form to your health care provider to complete together, or you may provide immunization records or blood test reports from a doctor, clinic, state, pharmacy, or lab. The documents must have the doctor or medical facility listed, in addition to the vaccination dates. Hall Health will not accept self-reporting documentation as a result or vaccination booklets without the address or location of the administering clinic documented next to the date of the vaccines.
How to look up immunization records from a state immunization registry
If you were immunized in another state, visit the CDC web page to locate your state health department.
For documents in languages other than English
Students may translate documents themselves to English before submitting. They should hand-write all pertinent information (vaccine names, dates, student name, date of birth, provider name, provider contact info) on their documents.
Where can I go to obtain records, vaccines or tests?
Immunizations, blood tests and shot records may be obtained at your regular physicians office.
As an enrolled student, you may also visit one of the CHI Franciscan Prompt Care Offices that serve current/enrolled UW Tacoma students during regular business hours. Staff there can help you access your records, get you immunized, or perform (titer) lab tests to see if you are immune. For more information about CHI Franciscan Prompt Care locations and hours, see our Student Health Services page.
In addition, there are many pharmacies that will give out immunization shots. Please check with them for pricing and availability as prices do vary by location.
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.
If you are planning to be vaccinated but have not yet received your last shot – either the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or the single dose of a one-dose vaccine – if you are a student, please wait until after your last shot before completing the form.
Students verify their vaccination status or claim an exemption through the form below.
Students must submit the Student COVID-19 Vaccine Attestation Form:
As soon as possible after the second dose of a 2-dose series or after a 1-dose vaccine, after they have decided to declare an exception, or by the start of autumn quarter on September 29, 2021, whichever date is earliest.
Students who are unable to get vaccinated until after arriving on campus may submit their form by November 5, 2021.
A hold will be placed on winter quarter registrations if the form has not been submitted by November 5, 2021.
