    MyUW for students on laptop

    MyUW offers new features, and coming this summer, the tool will be even easier to navigate. Now MyUW includes Google search and shows you the major or minor in which you’ve been admitted. Next up, MyUW's navigation will take undergraduate students to important areas, such as Academics, Profile, Accounts, and Husky Card, which means much less scrolling to find what you need. Quick Links will list the most popular resources, plus those you’ve recently used, and you can customize the list too.
