All incoming students will be assigned a temporary faculty advisor later this summer, after admissions has been finalized. This usually takes place toward the end of August, or early Sept. You will then arrange to meet with your advisor between Sept. 16 (when faculty are back on payroll after the summer) and the beginning of the quarter (Sept. 25), to go over your program plan for the year.
You can go ahead and register for classes when you are able (PMP students will register through PCE — see the PMP Information Category in this blog), all others will register through MyUW on or after your registration date. You can choose classes from your area of interest, and anything 400–500 level is generally OK. After you meet with your faculty advisor you can make changes to your schedule if needed during the first week of the quarter without any late fees.
Note: Full-time study for graduate students is 10 Credits.
Registration for autumn quarter for incoming graduate students will be starting in late June. You’ll receive that information after paying your Enrollment Deposit.
PMP students will receive registration forms and instructions from the Professional and Continuing Education Office. Students on the research track will register through MyUW.
Faculty advisors will be assigned later this summer, after admissions is finalized. You will be notified then who your advisor will be. You will arrange to meet with your faculty advisor sometime between Sept. 15 and the beginning of the quarter to go over your yearly course plan. If you will be working on a research project, the faculty member you will be working with will be your advisor.
In the meantime, you can take a look at the Time Schedule for Autumn 2013 at:
You can find the current master’s degree requirements for your area of interest on our website at: http://www.ce.washington.edu/prospective/grads/masters.html
Keep in mind the degree requirements have not been finalized for the 2013–2014 academic year at this point, so this is subject to change. You will be sent an updated program plan with degree requirements prior to registration.
Since you will not be meeting with your faculty advisor until September, you can pick the classes from the Time Schedule you would be interested in taking, (keeping the degree requirements in mind), and go ahead and register when you are able. Then if you need to make any changes after meeting with your advisor, that can be done through the first week of the quarter without any penalites.
