STEP ONE: PRINT FORMS
Download and print the Registration Approval Form and the Registration Form. (The forms are PDF files; downloading them requires Adobe Reader):
  • NM Student Registration Approval Form
  • NM Student Registration Form
    Please note: The registration form is dynamic. You may simply type in your information, including your courses, and your fees will automatically be calculated; then just print out the completed form. If you prefer to fill out the form by hand, you may download and print it without entering any data.

These forms are also available at UW Non-Degree Registration Services (4311 - 11th Ave. NE, Suite 100, Seattle, WA, or call 206-897-8939. See map.)
