To accept your offer of admission to the University of Washington Tacoma for the quarter for which you have been admitted, a non-refundableNew Student Enrollment and Orientation Fee (NSEOF) is required. This fee will be used to confirm your intention to enroll at UW Tacoma and for programs benefiting a successful transition for new students.

You can pay the fee one of two ways:
Confirm Your Enrollment - Click the button below to pay the NSEOF online using a credit card or web check. You will need a credit card or your bank account and routing number from a personal checking or savings account.
You may also confirm in-person on campus - Pay the NSEOF with cash at the Cashier's Office in Carlton Center (CAR 400), 1551 Broadway, 4th Floor. *This option may not be available during restricted operations due to COVID-19.
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.
What is the next step after I complete my enrollment confirmation?
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).
