Student Center

We have created a website to highlight important pieces of the Student Center students should pay attention to now and throughout the semester. When working with students, please encourage them to visit and have a look at the information in the shaded boxes. Highlights include:

  • Apply for graduation
  • Student privacy rights (FERPA)
  • Tuition Account & Financial Aid Status
  • Contact Information & Restrict 3rd party mail
  • And more!

The link at the bottom of the website directs the user to log into the Student Center through My UW, where information can be viewed and updated as needed.
