Registering for classes is one of the most important tasks you’ll complete as you start your journey with UW-Platteville.

You will receive an email inviting to schedule your advising appointment. During this appointment, you will review your transfer credits, general education requirements and major requirements, and sign up for your classes.

This email will also give you instructions on how to self-enroll in the New Student Experience Canvas course, which will provide you with important information to prepare for your advising appointment.

Tips to ensure a successful advising and registration appointment

  • Select an hour where you can be available without distractions in an appropriate environment like your home or other quiet space.
  • Make sure you sign in with a reliable internet connection on a computer with Zoom and camera access. It is required that you use a computer and not a phone for your appointment. Please contact us at if you have technology concerns.
  • Review the “Registration Planning” module in the New Student Experience Canvas course prior to your appointment.
