A hold will be placed on your record until you have completed the checklist, and will be automatically removed once you’ve finished all seven steps of the PEC.

The items included in the Pre Enrollment Checklist are collected prior to enrollment each term to ensure that UW-Madison is in compliance with the Missing Student Notification Policy and Procedures 20 USC 1092 (j) section 488 of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, with the federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requirement that students are notified of their rights under the law and to collect student agreement to accept for responsibility for the financial obligation they incur when enrolling in courses.
