UW in the High School

Who Can Enroll

Any high school student who is academically ready may sign up to take a UW course at their school and earn high school credit. Courses offered through UWHS are official UW courses and are more challenging than a typical high school course. You should be ready to spend considerable time studying outside the classroom. Most UWHS students are up for the challenge — more than 90% successfully pass their course and earn UW credit.

To enroll for UW credit, you must have a B+ average in courses in the subject area or permission of the instructor. You must also have completed any prerequisite coursework. About half of the courses offered through UWHS have prerequisites. Check the course descriptions for prerequisite information.

Disability Accommodations

Any accommodations approved at your high school must also be approved for your UW courses. To make an accommodation request or obtain more information, contact the UW Disability Services Office at, 206-543-6450 (voice) or 206-685-7264 (fax).
