New Student Tips
View a map of your classes on campus
While the UW-Madison campus may be beautiful, it is hardly small. When scheduling your classes, it is helpful to know where your classes will be so you have enough time to move from building to building.
The Class Map Portlet in My UW displays an interactive map of your classes so it is easy to see where your classes are located and know how far you will need to walk between classes.
To see your Class Map, log in to My UW with your NetID and password. Go to the Student Services Tab, and click My Enrolled Classes Map.
Remember Enrollment Deadlines
As a new student, you may not be aware of the various deadlines regarding your enrollment. View the Deadlines webpage to see a quick view of the most important deadlines for the upcoming fall semester. Failure to adhere to these deadlines may have an adverse effect on your student record and/or financial consequences. When in doubt, contact us or talk with your academic advisor.
Remain alert with Twitter - @UWMad_Registrar
To stay up to date with important information and key deadlines, follow the Office of the Registrar on Twitter! We will tweet about important deadlines, new student services features and other helpful announcements to help you stay informed on campus.
Make scheduling easier with the Course Guide and Schedule Planner
In Course Guide you can search for courses by a variety of topics including level, instructor name, Interest Groups (FIG or Residence Halls) and more. You can also see real-time seats so you know how many open seats are left in a class before you try to enroll.
In addition to searching for classes, you can build schedules within Course Guide and then enroll in those classes in your Student Center by using the Schedule Planner.
View the Course Guide Demos to see step-by-step instructions on how to use these helpful scheduling tools.
