Non-Degree Admitted Students

Special Students enjoy many of the same benefits as degree-seeking students. Learn from world-class faculty. Enjoy selected shows at the Weidner Center with discounted tickets. Visit the Kress Center for your daily workout. Explore all the ways that UW-Green Bay provides a 360° experience.


    Read your admission packet: All admitted students receive an admission letter and additional information via postal mail. This should arrive within several days of admission being granted. Read all instructions carefully. Use the instructions to log into our Student Information System (SIS) and check your UW-Green Bay email. Most correspondence and important University news will come via SIS and UW-Green Bay email.

    Get your student ID card: If you are attending classes on campus, your University ID card may be needed for access to certain classrooms, the Kress Center, and to access certain services. You can obtain your ID card at the University Union.

    Get a parking decal: If you are going to park a car on campus, you will need to purchase a parking decal. Go to the Bursar’s Office (Student Services Building, Room 1300) for the application form and to pay the fee.


    Special Students, in general, are not required to meet with an academic adviser prior to course registration. However, advisers are always willing to provide advice regarding appropriate coursework, help you learn to use SIS, and work with you regarding course prerequisites.

    Please be advised that many Special Students run into prerequisite or closed class issues and will need to be granted permission to enroll. To request permission:

    1. Submit a Course Registration Override to the course professor.
    2. The professor will approve or deny your request.
    3. You will receive an email confirming approval or denial of your request. If approved, we will enroll you in the course.

    Additional registration instructions can also be found online at Advising's How Do I Register?

    Course registration happens on a set schedule, according to various student criteria. You can find registration dates at the registrar's calendar.


    If you are a high school student enrolling as a Youth Options student, you will be invited to an orientation/registration session to register for classes and become acquainted with UW-Green Bay. Watch your mail for further information.
