Note/Tip: Courses INFX 501 - 505 are not a sequential series. If you are looking to meet technology requirements, go with something that interests you or will be most useful in your future. Both 501 and 503 are coding classes, but many students find 503 to be more interesting and a bit easier to slip into coding.
Last four Qtrs student self-estimate: On average, how many hours per week have you spent on this course, including attending classes, doing readings, reviewing notes, writing papers and any other course related work?
I hope this is useful to you. Please note the number and percentage of responses. You might keep that in mind at the end of the quarter when I ask you to complete the course assessment.

MBA Students and other non-iSchool UW Grad Students
I welcome you guys in these courses. First because I was a UW MBA '84, probably before you were born, and second because you bring a different perspective to the courses. Most students are grad students in some UW program, mostly in the Information School's MSIM and MLIS programs but also the Law School, Nursing, MBA, etc.Unfortunately, at the start of each quarter’s registration there is always a bit of a issue in getting the registration system to work smoothly for you. Here are a couple pieces of information for you until we get you in the classes.
- There is no enrollment cap in any of these courses, so there is and will always be a seat for you. We just need to get the right 1s and 0s to line up.
- It should be a simple process to register - just make sure you use the correct SLN from the current Time Schedule posted online. You should be able to do this on your own via your MyUW.
- Note: that you can register for INFX 501, 502, 503, or 504 starting in registration period 1. INFX 505 would be in period 2. Other INFX courses have restrictions that keep you from registering until period 3.There is still no enrollment cap.
- If the above information doesn't resolve your registration issues with my INFX courses, please contact one of our Student Services people such as:
- They will need your UW ID – first part of your UW email address to process the registrations.
- If you register after the course starts, I can manually grant you access so that you do not have to wait while the glitches get worked out. I will need your UW ID.
Please feel free to contact me at any time before, during or after the course.Bob
