As students on J-1 visas, you are not allowed to take online classes towards your full-time enrollment status. At University of Washington, there are three types of classes: in-person, hybrid, or online. You are allowed to take in-person or hybrid classes towards your full-time enrollment status. Read more about your full-time enrollment requirements and exceptions online.

Music Vibes this November

We asked our ISS staff members what they're listening to right now and they shared the name of tunes they've been listening to lately. If you listen to these all in a row, it would make for an interesting playlist. Let us know how you like it!

Seattle News: Julio Rodriguez wins Rookie of the Year

One of our advisors, Alisa Sweet, wanted to share this breaking news with all of you today! Julio Rodriguez, Center Fielder for the Seattle Mariners, won Rookie of the Year! This was just announced today and brought much joy to Schmitz Hall where Alisa keeps her Mariner's Bobble Head collection. You can read more about this exciting Seattle news through the Major League Baseball website.
