The U-PASS fee will be automatically charged by UW Student Fiscal Services. Important instructions regarding the U-PASS, its activation and use, and payment deadlines are on the Commuter Services website.
Important Note: The quarterly U-PASS fee will separately appear in your student “Tuition Account Balance” section of MyUW. You will not receive a mailed or e-mailed bill for the U-PASS fee. Payment is due to UW Student Fiscal Services by the third Friday of each quarter.
Registration Fee
A nonrefundable $45 fee paid each quarter at time of registration.
Financial Aid
Students in all fee-based programs and fee-based degrees are ineligible for the staff tuition exemption program, institutional tuition waivers and the Undergraduate/Graduate University Grant programs, including the Husky Promise program.
However, it is possible for students in fee-based programs to qualify for some federal and state grants, loans, or the work study program, as well as some departmental scholarship programs, if they take five or more credits per term. For information on federal or state aid, contact the UW Office of Student Financial Aid.
Teaching Assistantships (TAs) are not available for students in the Professional M.S. Program. Individual faculty members may offer a temporary grant-funded research assistantship (RA) to their independent study students.

Also, local companies and R&D institutions sometimes offer paid internships or temporary part time jobs to PMSP students. See links on our Opportunities page to sign up for consideration; potential employers will see the information you provide.
