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 is 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 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.


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:

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.

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.
