Pre-Arrival Checklist

Congratulations and welcome! Here’s a checklist to begin your transition to UW.

Enrollment Confirmation Deposit

  1. Accept offer of admission: Go back into the site you used to apply and go the status page to indicate your decision to accept.
  2. You'll immediately see information about next steps, including how to establish your UWNetID, send your offical transcript, and pay the ECD. (The ECD credited to your student account at the beginning of the quarter after you enroll.)
  3. Proceed with paying your ECD. Please double check to be sure this step has been completed. IMPORTANT: If your ECD is not paid, your place in the program is not guaranteed and you will not be able to enroll or proceed with other important steps.
