SAFS Grads: Register for Winter Quarter 2016

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING VERY CAREFULLY AS YOU PLAN YOUR WINTER QUARTER SCHEDULE:

NOTE: If you are being paid as an RA, TA or are funded by a fellowship paid through the UW (ie. NSF), please register for at least 10 credits ASAP so that tuition charges will be removed from your student account in a timely manner. Anyone not falling into these categories is still encouraged to register promptly (at least by the first day of Winter quarter classes) to avoid late fees.

  1. Register for any required courses that you still need to count towards a degree. This includes core courses and graded electives. Information about degree requirements can be found at here. Required AFS courses being offered in Winter quarter:
    • Q SCI 482
    • FISH 521
  2. Register for up to 10 research credits unless it will put you over the 18-credit maximum:
    • MS grads should register for up to 10 credits of FISH 700, depending on other coursework.
    • PhD grads should register for up to 10 credits of FISH 800, depending on other coursework.
    • If you are TAing in Winter quarter, you should still register for research credits and any required courses you still need to take.

There is a wide range of 400 and 500 level courses this winter.  Check out the time schedule: http://www.washington.edu/students/timeschd/WIN2016/fish.html
