UWSOM Foundations Curriculum

Non-Clinical Elective Registration

All Seattle and distance-learning Non-Clinical Electives follow the University of Washington registration deadlines and timelines; local regional Non-Clinical Electives will follow their site’s registration deadlines and processes. This page contains information about registration deadlines, adding courses, dropping courses, among other policies. For more information or questions, contact your regional administrators or the SOM Non-Clinical Electives team.

Seattle and Spokane students register directly via their MyUW.

Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, or Idaho (WAMI) students will work with their regional administrators to register for a distance-learning Non-Clinical Elective.
