Spring 2019 registration will begin on Friday, February 15 at 6:00 AM.

Social Work Students: please refer to SSW Student Services Canvas page (Day/AS or EDP) under Module 4: Progressing Through your degree.

State-sponsored students — (BASW, MSW Day, Advanced Standing, and PhD) and Fee-based students (MSW Extended Degree Program) register online through MyUW.

UW Academic Calendar: Find important dates, including dates of instruction, registration deadlines, and deadlines for adding, dropping or withdrawing from courses.

Registration tutorials - We recommend registering with SLNs as opposed to MyPlan which isn't always consistent for registration.

About a week before registration begins each quarter, Student Services will email you a packet listing registration information, priorities and procedures.

Before the quarter begins, the most accurate scheduling information will come directly from the School of Social Work (in emails to students, posted on this website, etc.).  After the quarter begins, students should consult the official university time schedule (UW Seattle Time Schedule for state-sponsored students; PCE Time Schedule for fee-based students) for accurate and up-to-date information about class dates, times, instructors and locations. 

Disclaimer: The School of Social Work reserves the right to (1) add or delete courses; (2) change instructor, time, day or location of courses; (3) cancel any course for insufficient registration or academic/administrative decision without notice; (4) unregister students from courses for which they have mis-enrolled, have not received permission to enroll, or enrolled for an excessive number of credits; or (5) move students into a different section of a multi-section course. Students will be notified of any changes.


All add code requests/waitlist must be submitted through our online Catalyst Survey. We do not accept add code requests/waitlist requests via email. Emailed submissions will be deleted. 

Spring Waitlist will open March 4th @ 12:01 AM:


Students will hear a waitlist response by March 22nd. If you have any other questions or concerns, regarding classes, please email Student Services, sswstsrv@uw.edu.

Courses Requiring Instructor Permission: If a Social Work course requires instructor permission, students must still submit a waitlist request, unless otherwise specified.  Student Services will contact the instructor on the student’s behalf and will follow up if space becomes available. Please do not contact instructors.


Students in fee-based programs are not eligible to use their tuition exemption benefit for courses offered through the EDP Program as these courses are self-sustaining and administered through Professional and Continuing Education. A student in the EDP program may use tuition exemption for elective courses only if the elective is a state-funded course that is offered solely in the Day Program or another department. Day courses that are jointly offered with the EDP program are prohibited.
