Unless otherwise stated in your admission materials, all incoming students must attend an A&O session. During this, you will meet with an adviser to register for your first quarter classes, and learn about valuable resources at the UW. Most advisers are unable to meet with new students until they have completed the A&O session, so you can expect this session to be your first time meeting with an adviser.
