Process

While enrolled in your graduate program, you will register for all your courses online via MyUW. Instructions for how and when to register can be found on the UW Registrar’s Office website. Registration dates for each quarter are also posted on the UW Academic Calendar and it is each student’s responsibility to register according to these dates. We encourage students new to the UW to review the MyUW video tutorials  as well as the Registration web tutorial.

Each quarter you can find our department’s curriculum online by visiting the UW Time Schedule.  The Speech and Hearing Sciences curriculum is listed by academic quarter and can be located within the “College of Arts & Sciences”.  The department’s Autumn curriculum lists the times, locations and instructors for each of these required classes.

Books & Materials

If there are required textbooks for your class, you can find this information on the Time Schedule. Simply click on the Schedule Line Number (SLN) for the course and then select “Display Textbooks”. Unlike undergraduate courses, however, most graduate level instructors will inform you of their textbook and material requirements (e.g., reading packets) either via email or on the first day of class. You may find some listed on the Time Schedule, but anticipate hearing about books and materials the first week of school.

Clinical Schedules

While students will be informed of the didactic course schedule in advance of each academic quarter, clinical schedules will vary quarter to quarter depending on the practica in which students are enrolled, client availability and supervisor schedules. Students should anticipate not knowing their specific clinic schedules until the first week of each quarter. Students will be directly contacted by clinical faculty each quarter about clinic assignments, schedules, etc.

Since students will work directly with assigned faculty supervisors and clients to establish clinic appointments, this information cannot be provide to students in advance. Because this is a full-time program, please plan to be on site from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. Clinic appointments will always fall within these times which reflect our UW Speech & Hearing Clinic hours of operations. We appreciate that many of you wish to know your specific schedules in advance, but you will not be able to finalize your schedules until the first week of every quarter. Students will have the opportunity to communicate any schedule restrictions they may have to their direct supervisor, but the expectation is that your graduate program and clinic are a priority during business hours.
