Registration is managed by UW Professional & Continuing Education (PCE), and quarterly registration forms are distributed by them.  You can return the form or use the course registration numbers to call and register by telephone.  If you are in the Seattle area, payment is also accepted in person at their office.

Degree students follow the normal UW registration and refund deadlines.  Questions about account balances and financial aid disbursements should be directed to PCE Registration Services (; 206.543.2310).


Your UW NetID is your official University of Washington computing account.  It provides you with an email forwarding alias (and, depending on your student status, possibly a full email inbox as well) and becomes your user ID and password combination for UW services.  These services include your Canvas course website, access to lecture videos, UW library resources, and other tools.

New students are eligible to create a NetID upon registration (including full payment) for at least one course.  The NetID creation process can take several days to complete and activate, so do not delay in establishing a NetID if classes begin soon.  The Graduate School will provide information on establishing your NetID and supply your personal access code (PAC), needed to complete that process.

CFRM 101

Admitted MS students should refer to CFRM 101 materials for schedules and additional activities.  Access is restricted to your UW NetID and should be available starting at orientation.
