  • Marine Biology Quarter (MBQ) Course Registration: FHL staff will provide Add Codes to UW-matriculated students so students can register themselves through MyUW. All non-UW students will be registered by FHL staff.
  • Research Apprenticeship Course Registration: All research apprenticeship students will be registered by FHL staff; UW students should not attempt to register through MyUW.
