New Student Enrollment & Orientation Fee

The New Student Enrollment and Orientation Fee (NSEOF) is a mandatory, one-time fee that all entering undergraduate students at the Seattle campus of the University of Washington pay to confirm enrollment.

The NSEOF supports many academic and transition programs designed specifically to set students up for success. These programs include Advising & Orientation (A&O), Dawg Daze Welcome Week, Center for Learning and Undergraduate Enrichment (ASP/CLUE), the Commuter & Transfer Commons, UAA & OMA&D Advising, and First-year Interest Groups (FIGs).  

The NSEOF is neither refundable nor transferable to another quarter or another student.
