Measles Immunization Requirement

All matriculated UW Seattle campus students are required to provide proof of measles immunity. A registration hold will be put on your account until this requirement has been satisfied. If you are a continuing UW student, you do not need to provide this again.

For more information on how to prove the measles immunity, you can visit the Hall Health website here:

Please note that the immunity verification instructions have recently changed, and the updated instructions can be found at the Hall Health website link above (you will need a working UW Email address to complete the verification process).

Contact the Hall Health Center if you have questions about the verification process or whether or not they have received your immunization certificate form. The UW Measles Requirement hotline telephone number is 206-616-4672, or you may email them at

International Student I-20 Request Form and Financial Ability Requirement

If you are an international student and you have accepted your offer of admission, your next step is to fill out your I-20 request form. You will need to log back into your application and download the I-20 request form from your application status screen. It should include instructions on how to fill out the form as well as what documentation is needed to prove your financial ability. If you have accepted an RA/TA or fellowship that provides a tuition waiver, monthly stipend and benefits, the CEE Advising Office has notified the Graduate School of your funding.

If you have any questions about the I-20 form or acceptable documentation to prove your financial ability, you should direct them to the Graduate School at or you may call them at 206-543-5900.

The average living expenses for the 2016-2017 academic year can be found on the graduate school’s website at:

This will help you calculate the financial ability requirement which is needed for the I-20 request form.

If you are an international student who has an RA appointment for autumn quarter, when you register you’ll need to select the ISHIP option. Then when your appointment is entered in the payroll system for autumn quarter it will switch to GAIP and you will not be charged for ISHIP.
