English Language Academy Orientation is mandatory for all ELA students and will occur over a two-day period. Orientation is a time to help ELA students understand all aspects of life at UW-Whitewater. By the end of the two-day orientation, ELA students will know what is expected of them in the classroom, university community, and within United States culture. Many of the orientation sessions are combined with other degree-seeking international students when appropriate depending on the time of year.
All new ELA, international and exchange students are required to attend, so students must arrive in time to participate. A one-time $200 Orientation Fee will be charged to all ELA student accounts.
