GEN ST 199: The University Community

A 2-credit course designed to assist you in your transition to the UW.

GEN ST 199 is made for you, the busy UW student. It’s only 2 credits (graded Credit/No Credit), so it won’t crowd your schedule and you’ll be able to stay focused on your other courses.

Does this sound too good to be true? We’ll let you in on a little secret: the things you’ll cover in GEN ST 199 will be some of the most important, and most applicable skills you’ll need for your other courses.
