General Information

On-Campus Housing

UW-Green Bay does not require students to live on campus. If there is a chance you might want to live on campus, you should contract for housing now. More information about housing at UW-Green Bay was included in your admission folder (if you are a degree-seeking student), or you can go to the Office of Residence Life website for more information.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

The free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should be completed. The UW-Green Bay school code is 003899. A step-by-step guide to completing the FAFSA process can be found at our Financial Aid Office website.

Email & SIS

Use your username and password to access both your UW-Green Bay email and the Student Information System (SIS). Go to uwgb.edu and click on Current Students. For your email account, choose Outlook Web Access. For SIS, choose Student Information System. Your UW-Green Bay email account is where all official communication will now be sent. In your SIS account you will find your credit evaluation, register for classes, see your financial aid, and pay your bills.

If you were previously admitted to UW-Green Bay and changed your password at that time, the password in your admission letter does not reflect your changed password. If you don't remember your password or need to reset your password, go to Password Reset Form.

If You Change Your Senior Year Schedule

Your admission to UW-Green Bay was based on many factors, including the rigor of your high school courses. Our evaluation of rigor included your senior year class schedule. Therefore, if you decide to make changes in your schedule you must seek approval from UW-Green Bay Admissions to ensure that your admission status is not changed (or revoked) based on your schedule change. Please fill out the Schedule Change Approval Form, obtain approval from your school counselor, and submit the form to the Admissions Office. We will notify you regarding whether your change is approved.

Registration

New freshmen admitted for the fall will be invited to the FOCUS R&R program. During this one-day program in early June, you'll take care of business, most importantly registering for fall classes and getting your University ID card. You'll also meet faculty, staff, and returning students. You'll have questions, and you'll get answers. Parents and guests are welcome; in fact some sessions are designed just for parents and guests. Students admitted through January will receive an invitation in the mail. Students admitted after January will receive an invitation.

New freshmen admitted for the spring, or those who cannot make it to one of the FOCUS program dates in the summer, can contact Academic Advising to set up an individual appointment.

Wisconsin Math Placement Testing

Information regarding the Wisconsin Math Placement Test is generally available in late January. You will register for your placement tests beginning February 1. If you plan to take a foreign language class at UW-Green Bay, we strongly recommend that you also take the foreign language placement test.

Transfer Credit Evaluation

If you completed any courses at a college or university, you will be required to submit an official transcript for evaluation and awarding of possible transfer credits. Transfer credits are added to new freshman records starting in June and an evaluation is available on your SIS account 2-3 weeks after we receive your final official college transcript (new freshmen admitted for the spring should check their SIS account shortly before the start of the term). If after receiving your evaluation you have questions about how your credits have transferred, contact the Registrar's office.

If you have completed any exams that may result in college credit, you will need to have the official scores sent directly to us to receive credit for the equivalent courses at UW-Green Bay. Please contact the testing organization that issued the exam to have your official scores sent to us.

Credits will be posted to your transcript in 2-3 weeks after your scores are received.

Declaring Your Major

You are not required to declare a major right away at UW-Green Bay. However, all students must declare before they have 45 earned college credits. Most majors and minors are open for students to declare at any time. However, the majors of Communication, Education, and Social Work have separate entrance requirements that must be met before you can declare one of these majors. Please refer to the advisor(s) in these programs for more information.

The only deposit you will make after being admitted is your housing deposit (when you receive a housing contract).
If you were previously admitted to UWGB, you had the opportunity to change your password at that time. We were not able to import that password into your admission letter. If you forgot what you changed your password to, go to Student Password Reset.

Transfer students should refer to their admission folder for further registration information. Registration for the fall semester begins in April, and for the spring semester in November. Your enrollment appointment (the first day and time you may register) will be based on the number of credits you have earned. To find your enrollment appointment, follow these two steps:

  • Log into your Student Information System (SIS) account, using the username and password that were sent to you in your admission packet.
  • Look for “Enrollment Appointment” on the right hand side of your Student Center Screen. This is the first date and time you can register for classes. Click on ‘details' for more information. It is important to register as soon as possible.

International students will register during the mandatory orientation for new international students.

A credit evaluation is done following the admission of transfer students. Your credit evaluation will be e-mailed to your UW-Green Bay e-mail from the credit evaluator in our Registrar's Office. This is generally done within several weeks of your admission on a priority basis for the current semester. If you are transferring from a different UW campus, or from a Wisconsin Technical College campus, you can do an unofficial evaluation yourself at the Transfer Information System (TIS) website.
Visit the Cost page for information on tuition, housing, dining and other estimated costs. Please note that costs vary from year to year. Tuition is generally set during the July immediately preceding the school year for which you are enrolling.
If you are the dependent of a veteran, or are a veteran yourself, please see our Veterans Page for information about using your educational benefits and other resources.

This is a relatively conservative budget for a student who plans carefully and is willing to share living quarters with another student. While some students may need less money, many students find that they spend more than this amount. This estimate does not include the cost of international travel and having an automobile. Students holding F-1 or J-1 visas may be eligible to work part-time on campus. Such positions cannot be guaranteed; therefore, applicants cannot depend on campus employment as a source of financial support.

If you have trouble with your network account or e-mail, contact the Help Desk at (920) 465-2309 or helpdesk@uwgb.edu.
Visit the Schedule of Classes, information will be posted on this site for each term as soon as it is available. Please note that a paper-based schedule of classes is not available. You can print the schedule from your computer if you wish.
New freshmen register for classes at FOCUS Registration and Resources. Transfer students should refer to their admission folder for further registration information.
A credit evaluation is done following the admission of transfer students. Your credit evaluation will be e-mailed to your UWGB e-mail from the credit evaluator in our Registrar's Office. This is generally done within several weeks of your admission on a priority basis for the current semester. If you are transferring from a different UW campus, or from a Wisconsin Technical College campus, you can do an unofficial evaluation yourself at the Transfer Information System (TIS).
Visit the Cost page for information on tuition, housing, dining and other estimated costs. Please note that costs vary from year to year. Tuition is generally set during the July immediately preceding the school year for which you are enrolling.
We're sorry if you need to cancel your admission, and hope we will be able to serve you in the future. If you do need to cancel your admission, you can do so by completing the online cancel form. You will need to provide your name, date of birth, and last 4 digits of your social security number so that we may verify your identity.
