Transfer

Meet other new Huskies, talk with academic advisers, and register for classes—all in the same day. 

If you have previously attended another college or university, this orientation is for you!

Congratulations on being admitted to UW! Follow these steps to make sure you're ready for A&O.

NSEOF: To confirm your enrollment and be able to reserve your spot at A&O you must submit your New Student Enrollment and Orientation Fee (NSEOF). Please visit the New Huskies website in order to accept your offer and pay. 

UW NetID: If you have not yet set up your UW NetID you will need this in order to sign in and reserve your spot at A&O. 

Forward your Email: Your UW NetID also serves as your UW email, simply add @uw.edu to the end of your NetID. Your confirmation email and all future communication regarding A&O and other university business will be sent to your UW email, so make sure you have forwarded your UW email to your personal email so you don't miss anything! 

You will meet one-on-one or in small groups with an academic adviser during your A&O program and because of this the dates that are displayed when you register are based on the major you selected. 

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 register for your autumn quarter classes.
