At UW-Platteville, we strive to make the transition to college as seamless as possible. During your On-Campus Orientation as part of the New Student Experience, we will introduce you to all the tools, knowledge, and support you’ll need for the semester ahead. We look forward to welcoming you and up to two guests to participate in our exciting on-campus orientation programming.

During On-Campus Orientation, you will:

  • Connect with members of your campus community, including other incoming students, current students, faculty, and staff.
  • Learn about university policies, procedures, and processes.
  • Get introduced to resources that will support your success in your first semester and through graduation.
  • Engage with campus life and UW-Platteville culture.
  • Meet with your advisor and register for fall classes (if you chose to register in person on your orientation day).

Reconnecting with campus

Join us in August for virtual sessions to answer any last-minute questions about living or dining on campus, using campus technology, paying for college, and more. Families and students are encouraged to attend.  

Please note – these sessions are primarily for Platteville main campus students and their families. We encourage Baraboo Sauk County or Richland students to contact Jason Schulte at schultejas@uwplatt.edu for any questions regarding those campuses.

Choose either session based on your schedule.
