Concurrent Enrollment at UW and Another College

You can “concurrently enroll,” which means you take classes at UW and another school in the same quarter, and ISS combines the credits to count as full-time.

Eligibility:

  • You must take the majority of your required minimum credits at UW: at least 7 credits of your required 12-credit minimum for undergraduates, or for graduate students, at least 6 of your 10-credit minimum.
  • You must take courses at the appropriate educational level
  • The credits should count towards your UW degree; consult your academic adviser to ensure the credits will transfer back to UW.
  • Contact ISS before your proposed concurrent enrollment quarter to ensure the request will be approved by UW ISS.

How to Apply for Concurrent Enrollment Permission from ISS:

  1. Consult your academic adviser to be sure the course will count towards your UW degree.
  2. Register for the course at the other college.
  3. Complete the ISS “Concurrent Enrollment Approval” webform:

REQUEST CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT APPROVAL

After Your Concurrent Enrollment Quarter:

  1. Undergraduate students: contact Undergraduate Admissions at intladm@uw.edu for instructions on transferring your credit to UW. (We in ISS do not evaluate transfer credits; we only update the SEVIS record to indicate full-time enrollment for F1 status).
    Graduate students: contact your graduate program coordinator for transfer instructions.
  2. Upload a copy of your unofficial transcript from your other college. This will be ISS documentation that you completed your class.
