Travel reimbursements may be delayed
The University of Washington is in the final month of a multi-year “finance transformation” process. During the transition between systems, all payments from the University will be paused for a brief period during the official switch from old to new systems. All reimbursements for travel that have not been submitted to the current system will have to wait until July 5 to be submitted to the new system.
If you have not already submitted a reimbursement request, you will not be reimbursed until mid-July at the earliest. The WWAMI travel team is working as quickly as possible to get all received requests paid now, but we cannot guarantee the payments will be approved in time to be paid before July. UWSOM doesn’t control the approval process; we just submit the requests to upper campus.
Please continue to submit reimbursement requests to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will process them in July, in the order received.
ICYMI: Information for students in clinical clerkships during Summer 2023
This is for students taking clinical clerkships during Summer Quarter 2023, anytime between June 26 and Sept. 15, 2023.
Action required: Log in to MyUW to verify your registration for CONJ 699 for Summer Quarter 2023.
Deadline: 3 p.m. AK, 4 p.m. PT and 5 p.m. MT on Thursday, June 22, 2024.
What’s at stake:
- If you are not registered but should be: You will not be enrolled in courses for the Summer 2023 quarter, which begins on Monday, June 26. Without registering, you will not receive credit for the courses, they will not appear on your transcript, and you will not be on track to graduate.
- If you are registered but should not be: You will be charged for courses you do not attend and may receive a failing grade.
Here’s why we’re asking you to do this:
The school has registered students for Summer quarter clerkships with the UW Office of the University Registrar. If you are taking UWSOM clinical courses during the Summer quarter, it is your responsibility to verify that you are registered correctly for CONJ 699. To verify your registration, log in to MyUW and look for CONJ 699 on your schedule for Summer 2023. Follow any prompts that the University indicates.
Let the school know immediately at email@example.com if you are not registered for this course, but should be, or if you are registered, but should not be.
Career Advising Student Advisory Board Tip of the Month
While on rotations, try to secure at least one person who can write a letter for your residency application. If an attending offers to write you a letter in the future, take them up on it! If they don’t offer one naturally, but you connect with them and do well on the rotation, ask if they feel they can write you a strong letter of rec. Away rotation applications also often require letters, so stay in touch with these letter writers! Here’s some more info from Career Advising on letters of recommendation.
