So you’ve been admitted...now what?

By Namura Nkeze, Transfer and Commuter Student Programs Coordinator, First Year Programs

The University of Washington is HUGE and to make it easier for you to navigate your first quarter, First Year Programs (FYP) offers Advising and Orientation (A&O). This is a mandatory program for all new students that assist you in getting started on the right foot.

Transfer A&O happens mid-July thru the end of August. It is a day-long program that gets you connected to your new institution. You will have the opportunity to meet with an academic adviser, obtain your Husky ID card, learn how to navigate the registration system, connect to other new transfer students as well as take part in a variety of other sessions geared to assist you in making this transition.

Once you have paid your New Student Enrollment and Orientation Fee (NSEOF) you will be able to register for an Advising and Orientation session. Every effort will be made to place you with an adviser from your major of choice on the day you select. If you indicated an interest in Biology, English, History or Psychology as a major you will be invited to a special department designed orientation in early September. Read more about these orientation sessions in this newsletter.

We are excited to meet you during A&O! Congratulations on choosing the UW to continue your educational career! For more information on A&O please visit http://www.fyp.washington.edu.
