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.

Graduate taking Undergraduate Classes

Yes, graduate students may enroll in undergraduate courses and be charged undergraduate tuition without changing their admission status. 

No. 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.

Students should verify whether a UW-Whitewater course will be accepted by their home institution with their advisor or academic department at their home institution. The Transferology website can be a helpful tool in determining this; however, it is not always current and verification with the home institution is necessary. Once students have completed their UW-Whitewater course, they can request a transcript through the Registrar’s Office.
