Accept Your Offer of Enrollment
The first thing you need to do is to let us know you’re coming! This will include logging into MyGrad to register your intention to enroll. Please refer to the letter of acceptance from your department for more detail on how to officially accept your offer.
Pay Your Deposit
When you accept your offer, you will be asked to pay a deposit toward tuition. This will confirm your spot in your program and allow you to start setting up access to UW systems.
Gain Access to UW Resources
Once your deposit is paid, you’ll want to set up a UW NetID. The NetID will act as your central sign-on throughout your time at UW and will allow you to access resources like MyUW, which is the student portal to registration, UW email, and employee information (taxes, earnings), among other things.
Set Up Your Preferred Name
Log in to Identity.UW to set up your profile with your preferred name, pronouns, and to set up your UW Directory preferences.
Contact Your Department
Make sure you are staying in contact with your home department. They will have resources to help guide you through this process and most will have staff to help you navigate it all.
Students enrolling at the UW from foreign countries have special requirements, including making sure that their visas are in order. Depending on which campus your program is based, you’ll need to contact the appropriate International Student Services (ISS) office:
