UW Pipeline Project

Spring 2020 EDUC 401 Pipeline Seminars

Participate in a weekly seminar and tutor for at least 2.5 hours a week at a Seattle school or community organization. All of our courses are I & S credits, and are listed under EDUC 401. The number of credits depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. Seminars are a fantastic opportunity to learn about issues in public education and tutoring strategies, while reflecting and learning from your tutoring site.

For updated procedures surrounding EDUC 401 due to COVID-19 please see our COVID-19 response page: COVID-19 Response

All students will take a required Pipeline Orientation the second day of the seminar class. If you miss the first day of class you must sign up for an alternative orientation here and complete orientation by the end of the second week of the quarter.

For EDUC 401 seminars, the number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. Seminars are Credit/No Credit. Credit and tutoring requirements are as follows:

  • 3 credits*: 3 hours tutoring/week (at least 20 hours tutoring/quarter)
  • 4 credits: 5 hours tutoring/week (at least 40 hours tutoring/quarter)
  • 5 credits: 7.5 hours tutoring/week (at least 60 hours tutoring/quarter)
  • 6 credits**: 10 hours tutoring/week (at least 80 hours tutoring/quarter)

*A Student may opt to register for 1 or 2 credits if it means avoiding an additional registration fee.

** Students can only enroll for a max of 6 credits total per Quarter when tutoring for the Pipeline Project. Need more Credits still? Email pipeline@uw.edu and we will do our best to accommodate you

Need to change the number of Credits for your Seminar? If by any means you are in need of a Variable Credit Change in your EDUC 401 Seminar you have to email Pipeline on your situation and must come into our offices at MGH 171 to waive Credit Change Fee before Friday of Week 7.
