Student Academic Services is committed to an excellent Husky Experience for all undergraduates. Together, our units — First Year Programs, Academic Advising, Academic Support Programs — welcome students into the University of Washington and support them in their academic journey, particularly in their first few years.
We believe the University should be a place of discovery and insight and that learning thrives in community. Please be in touch with your ideas and questions.
—Michaelann Jundt, Associate Dean
Each Autumn and Spring quarter, there is a campus-wide meeting for all advisers on the UW Seattle campus. These meetings are planned by members of the Academic Affairs and Advising Deans and Directors Group.
Learn more and view previous agendas on the All Advisers Meeting website.
General Studies (GEN ST) courses support the undergraduate academic experience by offering students a holistic education beyond a particular discipline.
Housed and administered within Undergraduate Academic Affairs, General Studies courses serve as a place for curricular innovation, intellectual curiosity and experimentation. Courses are created and sustained by innovative educators and programs across campus.
The Husky Experience Toolkit is a a series of articles encouraging UW students to challenge themselves, think about their options, and weave together all they are learning. Delivered through MyUW within four thematic areas — Know Yourself, Know the World, Make Your Way, and Weave it Together — these articles help students connect with university resources and make the most of their UW experience.
Join us for our quarterly SAS/OMAD ACS advising meetings to hear updates from our teams and engage in discussion about cross-unit collaboration.
Next meeting is Thursday, September 16, 10-11:30 a.m.

Community College Engagement Initiative (CCEI) was a year-long study conducted in 2015 to review and assess the community college transfer student experience at the UW. The CCEI work has continued through continuing councils such as Transfer Student Engagement Council (TSEC) and is supported by the Transfer Initiative.
Questions about the Transfer Initiative, please contact Martha Tran.
We are in conversation to build on existing efforts and transition summer/autumn/winter admits from the 20-21 academic year to the physical UW campus. Please review our initial thoughts and explore ways to engage with our team.
First Year Programs (FYP) is responsible for the annual entry and transition of all new undergraduate students (first-year and transfer) and family members. Specific FYP programs include: U101, Advising and Orientation, Parent Orientation, Dawg Daze Welcome Week, First-year Interest Group (FIG) program, and the Commuter & Transfer Commons.
