Taking Courses at UW
Anyone who is not an admitted UW student may apply as a non-matriculated (non-degree seeking) student, pay tuition, and register for classes on a space-available basis. Follow the process outlined on the link above. Please send your registration approval form to firstname.lastname@example.org to have the department and instructor sign to give you conditional approval to register. Please then attend the first three days of class and if there is space in the section you will be officially registered on the third day of the quarter. Please note we cannot guarantee there will available spaces for non-matriculated students.
See our page on Non-Degree Study for more information.
The ACCESS Program allows Washington State residents aged 60 and above to audit some UW courses on a space-available basis (and with instructor permission) for only a registration fee.
Access students may attend and register for only certain FRENCH or ITAL courses. Access students should check the current time schedule to see if a course is open to them. Access students may not register for French or Italian language courses taught by graduate student instructors (Academic Student Employees) or part-time lecturers. Access students should email the instructor or attend class on the first day to speak with the instructor and get permission to audit the course and get the required entry code from the instructor.
Please note UW policy states that auditors may only sit in on classes and may not participate in class discussions, homework, exams, or other assignments. For more information see our policy and guidelines for ACCESS students. Feel free to email email@example.com with any questions.
The Department of French & Italian Studies does not offer commercial tutoring services to UW students or the general public. Therefore we cannot find tutors or set up tutoring arrangements for those looking for this service.
For community members, one resource for tutoring services is the Alliance Française de Seattle. A potential resource for UW undergraduate students is UW Academic Support Program's CLUE study center. Contact them to see if you can set up private tutoring.
The Department of French & Italian Studies does not offer commercial translating services to UW students or the general public. Therefore we cannot find translators or set up translation arrangements for those looking for this service.
Those looking for translation services should contact the Northwest Translators and Interpreters Society (NOTIS).
