Registration

Please check the academic calendar for registration dates.

Graduate students may register online through their PASS Student Center.

Payment of Fees

Registration will not be permitted unless your account balance is zero and all holds are removed. For further information, contact the Cashier's Office at 608.342.1211.

Overloads

Graduate students are allowed to register for up to nine credits during the fall/spring semesters and up to six credits during the summer sessions. In order to register for additional credits, (twelve credits during fall/spring semesters and up to nine credits during summer sessions and), students must have approval from their advisors. Approval may be sent to the School of Graduate Studies Office by email. Permission must include the student's name, semester, and the amount of credits allowed. A graduate student who wishes to add more than twelve credits for the fall/spring semesters and nine credits for the summer session will need the additional approval (beyond the advisor's approval) of the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies.

Independent Study

Students registering for an independent study class must complete an independent study proposal form, have it approved and forwarded to the School of Graduate Studies, gradstudies@uwplatt.edu, either before they register for the class. You may register for more than the maximum number of independent study credits allowed by a department. However, you may only apply the maximum number of independent study credits allowed by a department toward a master's degree at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.

Seminar Paper or Thesis

Students registering for seminar paper research or thesis research must have an approved proposal either on file in the School of Graduate Studies prior to registration. Your final approved thesis or seminar paper must be submitted to gradstudies@uwplatt.edu to be recorded in MINDS@UW.  Your degree will not be conferred until your paper is received.
