General Interest Sessions
Maybe you’ve already decided your major—or maybe you’re just starting to consider your options. Either way, this session will help you take the next step in your academic career!
Attending a General Interest Transfer A&O session will connect you with information about majors across the University. While you’re here, you’ll get your first taste of what UW student life is like, and meet a variety of your future new friends and classmates. You will also meet with a UW academic adviser and register for your Autumn quarter classes.
Please note: It takes two days to process your New Student Enrollment and Orientation Fee (NSEOF). You will not be able to register for an A&O session until your NSEOF has been received and processed. You will also need your UWNetID to register.
