Next steps and orientation for non-traditional students at UW-Whitewater


All admitted students are requested through WINS to submit health and immunization documents to the university.   These forms are helpful in a medical emergency and recommended for students to complete; however, you are not required to submit such documents.  To request cancellation of the document requests on WINS, contact the University Health and Counseling Services department at (262) 472-1300, .

Student Orientation

All new and transfer students are required to attend "Plan-It Purple", the university's orientation, advising and registration program.  Readmit students are not required to attend but will need to seek advising from their advisor prior to being allowed to register for classes. Your advisor and his/her contact email will be listed on your WINS account approximately one week after you are readmitted.  If you wish to change your major, you will need to meet with your previous advisor first in order to initiate the change.

Registration information for Plan-It Purple will be sent at time of admission or can be found at  It is best to register as soon as you are admitted to reserve a space for you and or your guest.   In order to accommodate adult student needs and concerns, UW-Whitewater offers students the option to participate in an adult student group during the orientation event.
