During the second quarter in which you are not registered as a student, you will receive an email notification that your computing services will expire. Make sure you migrate any personal files (i.e. files in your UW Google Drive) and email to a personal service if you wish to preserve them! You will still be able to access your UW NetID, and forward your UW email to a private email service.
If you are interested in developing skills for navigating life beyond college, the Life Skills Collection and the College & Careers Collection are located on the first floor of the Campus Library.
The Life Skills Collection includes topics such as health & wellness, financial literacy, mindfulness, relationships, understanding diversity, academic success, and personal safety.
The College & Careers Collection provides career-oriented resources to help you explore various career choices, create resumes and cover letters, and develop interview skills. This collection also includes information on graduate schools and test-prep materials.
Recent graduates can check out any of these materials until your borrowing privileges expire, after that you may wish to make note of the books highlighted in our online guide and request these titles from your local public library.

Land Acknowledgment: The University of Washington Bothell & Cascadia College Campus Library occupies Land that has been inhabited by Indigenous Peoples since time immemorial. Specifically, this campus is located on Sammamish Land from which settler colonists forcibly removed Coast Salish Peoples to reservations in the mid-19th century. Today, descendants of the Sammamish are members of several Coast Salish communities.
