Enrollment Appointment Times

How appointment times are assigned

Enrollment appointment times are based on a student’s academic program, projected class standing (e.g., senior), and number of earned credits.

  • Specific student populations receive priority enrollment.
  • Some large groups, like sophomores, have enrollment appointment times distributed across multiple days.

If your assigned time is significantly different than what you’d expect, please contact us.

Retroactive Language Credits

Retroactive credits are entered on the university transcript during the term following the term in which these credits are earned. Retroactive credits do not advance a student’s enrollment priority for the term immediately following the term in which the course to earn retroactive credits was taken. For more information, read the University of Wisconsin–Madison Language Institute’s page on retroactive language credits.
