Enrollment Confirmation System
The Office of the University Registrar in partnership with UWIT, the Graduate School, Professional and Continuing Education (PCE), Undergraduate Admissions for Bothell, Seattle, and Tacoma, Student Fiscal Services, and First Year Programs is happy to announce the release of our new online Enrollment Certification System. Undergraduate, Graduate, and Professional applicants that have been offered admission can confirm their plan to enroll at the UW and pay their Enrollment Confirmation Deposits (ECD) or New Student Enrollment and Orientation Fees (NSEOF) online using a credit card or web check.
New Student Enrollment and Orientation Fee (NSEOF)
The New Student Enrollment and Orientation Fee (NSEOF) is a mandatory, one-time fee required of entering undergraduate students to confirm their enrollment. The NSEOF supports many academic and transition programs designed specifically to set students up for success at the Seattle, Bothell, and Tacoma campuses.

Confirming Enrollment after the start of the quarter
The Enrollment Confirmation System student portal closes the night before the first day of the quarter, but it will remain available to students confirming their enrollment for the following quarter. To confirm your enrollment after the start of the quarter, students can pay their deposit using cash, check, and wire transfer either by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, physically coming into the Office of the University Registrar with your deposit, or sending their deposit to the Registrar processing center via postal mail:

Troubleshooting Credit Card Issues
- Large payments may be declined even if the cardholder has the available credit because they may have a daily spending limit.Contact your bank prior to paying. If you are a United States citizen and you are using a debit card, consider paying via webcheck, typically there’s no daily limit and there’s no fee. If not, you need to contact your issuing bank to have your daily limit increased before trying again.
- Foreign cards will sometimes automatically decline because they are making an online international payment which is deemed as potentially fraudulent. These may look paid to the cardholder because the funds have been put on hold by the issuing bank but the funds should be returned to the cardholder within a few days/weeks (different countries have different banking rules). You can contact your issuing bank to resolve the issue before trying your card again or use another payment method. We do not have your funds and unfortunately you will have to wait for your issuing bank to release the funds back to you.
- Currently credit card payments in MyUW cannot be processed if there is an apostrophe in the name. You can try using your name without an apostrophe, but it may not work. You may have to pay via another payment method.
- PayPal will decline your credit card if you do not enter your billing address.Be sure to use your Billing Address when paying with a credit card. PayPal will decline your card if you use an address not affiliated with your credit card.
Creating Your UW NetID
Creating your UW NetID
UW NetID stands for University of Washington Network Identification. Your UW NetID and password are your account for accessing your UW information and other online services.
New Undergraduates: If you applied online but do not already have a UW NetID, you can obtain one by going to the UW Admissions NetID site for undergraduate students (includes new freshmen, transfer, and postbaccalaureate students).
All other students: You should go to the UW NetID site, where you will need to use your Private Access Code (PAC) and system key to obtain your UW NetID. For help with recovering your NetID, visit the UW NetID site or IT Connect’s About UW NetID site for more information.

Unknown UW Password
Call 206-543-8580 to reset a forgotten UW password. You must have your student number and Private Access Code (PAC) to reset your UW password.
Student Number Unknown
Your seven-digit student number is issued during the admission process. This number is yours alone, and will be your student number forever. If you order a UW transcript 30 years from now, you will be identified by your student number.
The first two digits of your student number are the year you were admitted to the UW. The third digit indicates the quarter you were admitted: 1 for summer quarter; 2 and 3 for autumn, 4 for winter, and 5 for spring. The rest of the digits are random.
