General Information

You've been admitted. What's Next?


Review 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

As an online learner, a student ID card isn't required. If you plan to come to campus on occasion, you're more than welcome to get an ID! You can obtain your ID card at the University Union.

Course Registration

Before you may register, all students must complete the payment agreement. This is not a deposit, but it is an agreement to pay for your courses. You can view details and complete the agreement in your SIS account under the Finances section.

At least one week before registration starts, we will notify you by email that the schedule of classes has been released and that you have been assigned a registration appointment. This is not an actual meeting, rather, it is the date and time you are first able to register.

We encourage all new students to meet with an advisor prior to registration. Please contact Academic Advising to arrange a face to face or phone meeting to discuss your transfer credits, ask your questions, and get help choosing your UW-Green Bay classes by calling 920-465-2111.

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

Cancelling Your Admission

If you no longer plan to attend UW-Green Bay, you can complete the application cancel form. Please note that cancelling your application may have consequences for your housing and financial aid. If you have questions or are uncertain about attending UW-Green Bay, we encourage you to reach out to your admissions counselor at 920-465-2111.
