Welcome to the Husky Family!
For Spring Quarter, we invite you to view topic-based recordings presented by various campus offices. After you have reviewed the recordings, please join the offices of Parent & Family Programs and First Year Programs for a live Zoom meeting overview of resources available to support your Husky during their transition. We will be available to answer questions and connect with you following the brief presentation.
Family Session: Supporting Your Spring Husky
Friday, March 1
5:30 – 6:30 p.m. PT
Topic-based recordings presented by various campus offices that were recorded from June - September 2023.
The offices of Parent & Family Programs and First Year Programs shared an overview of the agenda and some tips for helping your student navigate their first year at UW. Review the Husky Guide (student publication) and the Parent & Family Guide for commonly used resources.
Academic advisers are one of the most important connections your student can make. This session introduced the academic adviser's role and provided an overview of the general education requirements that students use to create their class schedules.
If your student was directly admitted directly to the Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering, Informatics, Foster School of Business, Honors program, or Engineering Undeclared, visit the following website for more information: https://fyp.washington.edu/aofamdirect.
Representatives from the Office of Student Financial Aid answered questions about how financial aid works. Other questions included the cost of attendance, an overview of the different types of financial awards, requesting a revision to financial aid awards, understanding loans, and using aid to pay bills.
Regardless of where your student lives, there are resources to help them ensure their living environment supports their academic experience. Learn from Housing & Food Services about the services provided and critical move-in timelines.
If your student plans to commute to campus, we look forward to welcoming them into the Commuter & Transfer Commons when they arrive on campus.
