The New Student Experience was designed to help students prepare for a successful transition into their college career at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. This experience is for new freshmen and transfer students at UW-Platteville and UW-Platteville Baraboo Sauk County.

Our dedicated faculty and staff have developed resources to help you along the way, with information specific to each campus and important next steps like completing placement testing, registering for classes, and more.

There are three main steps you’ll complete during New Student Experience:

  1. Meet one-on-one with an academic advisor and register for classes. Most students will complete this step virtually.
  2. Attend an On-Campus Orientation experience to build connections and learn about the resources available to you. We have some awesome Peer Mentors who will help you and other new students get to know each other, and guide you through the NSE process.
  3. We’ll welcome you to your campus during Welcome Day or Welcome Weekend.
