Important Information

ADMISSION

Graduate students may enroll in undergraduate courses and be charged undergraduate fees without changing their admission status. Students will receive undergraduate credit and a grade for these courses, but cannot request a change to graduate credit at a later date. Grades earned will not be computed into the student's term or cumulative grade point average. Transcripts will indicate: "Undergraduate credit earned, no graduate credit awarded." Students taking a combination of undergraduate and graduate courses in one term will be charged graduate fees for all courses. Courses numbered 500-799 may be taken at the graduate level only.

REGISTRATION

If you find that you must withdraw from a course after you have submitted the registration form, contact the UW-Whitewater Registrar's office immediately at withdraw@uww.edu or (262) 472-1570 for information regarding the proper forms and procedures. Fee payment adjustments will be made based on the official withdrawal date. There are no administrative drops for non-attendance; students must initiate a withdrawal.

UW-WHITEWATER E-MAIL, NET ID & PASSWORD

You will receive information regarding your UW-Whitewater e-mail address, Net ID and password in a letter from the Admissions office after your admission and registration forms have been processed. Before logging into your UW-W email account or WINS (UW-Whitewater’s web-based self-service student information system) for the first time, go to the UW-Whitewater home page, click on WINS, then Password Reset to set up your password according to university policy.

WINS

You can access the WINS system to make changes to your schedule, pay your tuition using a credit card, and view your unofficial transcript. After setting up your password according to the instructions above, return to the UW-Whitewater home page and choose WINS (upper right), then log in using your Net ID and new password. More information is available at the WINS Tutorials link.

GRADE REPORTS & TRANSCRIPTS

Grade reports are available via WINS or the Registrar’s Office; they are not automatically mailed. Grades are generally available to students one or two days after the official ending date of each term. Information about requesting grade reports or transcripts can be found at the Registrar’s Office website (choose Records & Transcripts link).
