Administrative Hold in My UW

The most common reasons for an administrative hold in MyUW are:

Document Not Picked Up
ISS will place an administrative hold in MyUW when a student has not picked up a document after multiple email notices have been sent to the student’s UW email address.

Incomplete check-in
Follow instructions for Post-Arrival Check-in.

Missing or Invalid Contact Information
International students (F-1 and J-1) are required by law to keep their current contact information on file with their school. Check the format of your local address in My UW using the U.S. Postal Service website and make sure to include a phone number in your local address in MyUW.
