Layoff training

If you are a UW employee separated through layoff and in active layoff status, you are eligible to take a select number of courses and workshops at a fee-exempt or fee-reduced rate.

To be eligible you must have already received your official Layoff Notification Letter and be considered by the UW as in active layoff status. You must attach a copy of this official Layoff Notification Letter to your layoff registration form. Ask your HR representative if you have any questions about your layoff status.

If you meet these criteria, you need to complete the registration steps listed below. You will be registered on a space-available basis.
