Class Email Lists
The Student Services and Admissions Office maintains moderated email listservs for each class year of dental students. These lists are only used for email sent by this office.
Email notifications from Student Services and Admissions may come from multiple email addresses, so please read all messages from us carefully.
Student Directory Information
Student Services and Admissions does not manage a student directory, but email and telephone numbers are available through the UW Directory provided the student authorizes release of directory information to the public. Please note that at this time, the Faculty and Staff search feature in the directory is open to the public, but the “search students” feature requires UW NetID login to view.
Please visit this page for more information: About the Student Directory. Students are responsible for setting their own directory information to either restrict or allow release.
Name Changes (and other updates)
Students are responsible for updating their directory information (e.g., official name, preferred name, e-mail address, current address, telephone, emergency contacts, and authorization to release information). Please take the steps below to ensure that instructional records and other documents reflect the most accurate and up-to-date information:
- Update your profile at UW
- Send the updated information to Student Affairs at email@example.com
- Optional: contact current or upcoming instructors to alert them to the change(s) and ensure they use the most up-to-date directory information in their class rosters
Please visit the Student Activities Office for information on registering your student group. Some discounts and free room reservations may be available.
Verification of Enrollment/Education Procedure
Students who need documentation of their enrollment in the UW SOD program for housing, insurance purposes, or intern registration in other states should contact their academic advisor. Please indicate if the enrollment verification requires the signature of a school official or needs to be embossed with the School seal.
