First Time Registrants & Readmitted Students
All new students (freshmen and transfer students) must be admitted and attend an orientation and registration program in order to register. Contact the New Student Programs Office (262-472-3205) for information.
Readmitted students do not need to attend an orientation and registration program. They will have a hold from their advising department and must meet with their advisor in order to register (see below for further information.) Before accessing your WINS page, you will need to do a password change. The link to the password change is on the side panel of the UWW web page (uww.edu).
During Priority Registration, you are assigned registration start times according to your earned credits.
Check WINS for your personal start time. (You are given an end time, but that end time can be ignored. You can continue to register until the end of the first week of class.) If you have forgotten your password, contact the computer HELP desk in L-2003 and bring your ID.
All College of Arts and Communication majors and some minors have advising holds. Note the specific advising requirements and processes for each major and minor as listed below. Prepare for your appointment by bringing a copy of your AR and a list of questions or concerns. Review the Schedule of Classes to get an idea of what courses you might be interested in. If any area of your AR is bolded, be sure that you know why.
Art Majors and Minors
You have an advising hold. Your advisor's name is listed in your WINS information page. Contact your advisor and make advising appointment early. Once you are advised you will receive a permission slip that gives you access to the Department of Art and Design's Pre-Registration Day process.

Contact the Department of Art and Design, 262-472-1324, for more information about this process.
Communication Majors (Journalism and Speech--includes print, broadcast, public relations, advertising, electronic media, interpersonal, international and organizational emphases)
You have an advising hold. To remove that hold you must either participate in the Communication Department's special "marathon" advising process or attend one of its group advising sessions. If you have 90 or more credits, or have both a Communication major and minor, then you must go through the special advising days "marathon" process (usually mid-semester). During this process you will meet with Communication department faculty who will review your AR and plan for next semester's registration. If you have fewer than 90 credits and only have a major (minor in another department) then you must attend one of the Communication Department's group advising sessions. Check with the Communication Department, 262-472-1034, to learn the date and time of these sessions. Communication minors do not have an advising hold. Advertising majors or minors who wish to take Art and Design department classes may have to attend the Department of Art and Design's special pre-registration process. Check with the Department of Art and Design about that process.
