Orientation & Registration
At UW-Platteville, we strive to make the transition to college as seamless as possible. During your orientation, we will introduce you to all the tools, knowledge, and support you’ll need for the semesters ahead.
We look forward to welcoming you and up to two guests to participate in our exciting on-campus orientation program.
During orientation, you will:
- Connect with members of your campus community, including other incoming students, current students, and faculty and staff
- Learn about university policies and processes
- Get to know resources that will support your success in your first semester and through graduation.
- Register for your first semester’s classes.
Note for Transfer Students
Transfer students are eligible to register for classes during the semester prior to their first semester at UW-Platteville. Academic advisors will email new transfer students to schedule virtual advising appointments. Transfer students are strongly encouraged to attend orientation to learn about UW-Platteville and meet other incoming students.

Note for Baraboo New Freshmen
New freshmen at the Baraboo Sauk County campus will receive an email from their academic advisor with information about scheduling an individual academic advising appointment, which will be on a different date than orientation.
Baraboo Sauk County campus
Students can make accessibility requests for their orientation day for themselves or their guests when starting their New Student Experience in their PASS account. These requests are intended for their orientation day, such as dietary needs, interpreters, mobility aids, large print materials, and more.
If additional accessibility requests for orientation are needed, students can log into their PASS accounts and edit their requests, or they can send additional requests to email@example.com.
Note that accessibility requests for the student’s time at UW-Platteville as a student (academic and non-academic accommodations) should be directed to the Disability Access Center. Learn more about the Disability Access Center.
Advising and Registration
All students will receive information about degree planning, general education, and requirements specific to their major prior to registering for classes. Students will receive assistance from academic advisors, peer mentors, and faculty in their major. An online module will also be available for students to learn more about advising and registration.
