Note: The process below applies to undergraduate Special No Credential Seeking students. Graduate students that wish to register as a Non-Candidate for Degree should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
There is a three-step process to enroll as a guest student that includes 1) applying, 2) requesting permission to enroll in a course, and 3) enrolling in the course.
Apply Now will take you offsite to the University of Wisconsin System application portal.
When you are admitted, you will receive a UW-Whitewater ID number. (It is a seven-digit number beginning with the number 2.) Once you have that ID number, complete the online form to request permission to enroll in a course. Please keep in mind:
NOTE: Most special no credential student questions are submitted during the prime of our UW-Whitewater student course registration period. Because of limited resources, the registration process for special non-credentialed students is completed via email. Our specialist will call a special non-credentialed student if an issue requires verbal clarification. Our specialists work to handle requests within two days.
After receiving permission to enroll, you must still go into WINS and enroll in the course using the UW-Whitewater ID number you received when you applied. If you do not enroll by the date indicated in the email you receive, you will lose your spot in the course.
(After you click on the link above, you will need to choose the department that offers the course you wish to enroll in, and then the "courses" tab to see specific course prerequisites.)
