Your UW Account

These instructions are only intended for students who applied online to the Seattle campus of the University of Washington. Applicants who submitted a paper application cannot use this process: They need to follow instructions they will receive by postal mail.

Steps to set up your UW account

Step 1 - Have your UW online application username and password ready
Find the username and password you used recently to apply online to the UW. You will need them to create your official UW account in step 2.

You can make sure you have the correct username and password by trying to login again to your online application account. If successful, you will see your online application activity page. Then return to this page and proceed to step 2.

Step 2 - Start the UW account creation process

After you have completed the set up process, we invite you to log into MyUW, your personal gateway to the University of Washington.
