The New Student Experience was designed to help students prepare for a successful transition into their college career at UW-Platteville, UW-Platteville Baraboo Sauk County, and UW-Platteville Richland. This experience is for new freshmen and transfer students at all our campuses.

Our dedicated faculty and staff have developed resources to help you along the way, with information specific to each campus and important deadlines like Placement Testing, Registration, and more.

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

  1. You’ll meet with an academic advisor and register for fall classes.
  2. We’ll help you build connections with campus and learn about the resources available to you.
  3. We’ll welcome you to campus in the fall during Welcome Week.

Learn more about campus and the New Student Experience through this welcome message from our Provost and Vice Chancellor of Enrollment and Student Success.
