You must apply and be accepted by Friday Harbor Labs before you can register for FHL courses. We will assist you in registering through University of Washington Professional and Continuing Education (UWPCE). Students, including UW students, may not register themselves for FHL summer courses without our assistance.
UW students with dorm contracts in Seattle should cancel their application and dorm assignment in Seattle within one week of confirming their attendance at Friday Harbor Labs. Log into the UW Housing & Food Services Application and Assignment Home Page and submit an Agreement Termination Notice (located under the Resident Resources header for the relevant academic year).
