After You Register
After you register for a UW course through UWHS, Registration Services will email you a transaction summary. This form confirms your enrollment and serves as a receipt for payment. If this is your first time registering for a UW course, you’ll also receive an additional email containing your UW Student ID number and Private Access Code (PAC). These two numbers are needed to establish your UW NetID.
Creating a UW NetID
A UW NetID gives you access to a variety of online services at UW. UWHS students mainly use their NetID to view their final UW grades or order transcripts through MyUW or to access the UW Libraries system. Creating a UW NetID is highly recommended for access to your UW grade and transcript, as well as resources such as the UW library. Once established, a student's UW NetID is permanent.
To create a UW NetID or retrieve a previously established one, visit the Get Your UW NetID page, and have your UW Student ID number and PAC handy. If you misplaced your Student number or PAC, contact Registration Services at (206) 543-2310 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request that the information be re-sent.
Student Learning Services
Students registered for UW credit can obtain a Husky Card, which is the official identification card for members of the UW community. A Husky Card can be obtained by visiting the Husky Card Account & ID Center, located on the ground floor of the Odegaard Undergraduate Library. Students will need to provide their UW Student ID Number and photo identification (high school photo IDs are not accepted).
Once students are enrolled for UW credit in a UWHS course, they will be able to borrow materials from UW Libraries. (Students who do not register for UW credit are unable to access the UW Libraries.) To borrow materials, students should obtain a Husky Card, which can be used as a library card (see instructions in the above section). Online resources can be accessed using the student's UW NetID (created by the student using their Student ID Number and Private Access Code, which are sent at the time of registration). Access to the library system is valid for the duration of the UW course.
UW Bookstore - Pack Rewards
Students with a valid Husky Card are eligible to participate in the U Bookstore rewards program, Pack Rewards.

Priority is given to students, faculty and staff of the University of Washington, to State of Washington residents and to questions about the University of Washington campus and libraries.
