UW in the High School

After Your Course FAQs

Congratulations! Now that you’ve completed, or nearly completed, a UW course through UW in the High School (UWHS), plan ahead for how to access your grades, share information about your coursework on college applications and transfer your UW credits to another college or university.

Check your final UW course grade.

Access your final UW grade by viewing your unofficial transcript (or academic record) through your MyUW student account.

Your final grade isn't recorded on your UW transcript until your teacher submits it to the UW. Until then, your transcript will show an “X” for the grade, which is just a placeholder.

What if your UW grade will be low? 

If you're concerned about receiving a low or failing grade in a UW course that has not yet ended, you still have the option to drop your course. You'd no longer be enrolled in the course, and no grade or credits would appear on your UW transcript. There are no refunds for dropping a course. If your grade is at least 2.0, you also have the option of changing your numeric grade to satisfactory, which would not count in your UW GPA.

Graduating and attending the UW next year?

You’re all set! Your UW coursework through UWHS is already a part of your UW record. Your grade and credits are on your UW transcript and will count toward your UW GPA and UW graduation requirements.

Graduating and attending another college or university next year?

You’ll need to request transfer of your UW credits to your college or university by ordering an official UW transcript to be sent to your college or university. Official transcripts are ordered online. Be sure that your UW grade has been posted before requesting your official transcript. In most cases, the UW credits transfer and the UW grade will not be included in your college’s GPA.

How do college credits earned through College in the High School programs affect financial aid eligibility?

If you have questions about the effect of College in the High School on your student aid or scholarship packages, check directly with your college’s admissions, financial aid and scholarship offices.

Applying for admission to college in the future?

Keep track of your UW course information, including the UW course syllabus your teacher shared at the beginning of the course. Knowing which UW courses you’ve completed and your final UW grades will make it easier to complete college applications, which usually require you to list previous college coursework.
