Need graduate courses?

You can enroll at UW-Stevens Point easily, without applying to the university and paying additional fees.

To register for graduate courses as a special, non-degree seeking student, you must hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution. You will be granted graduate special status when you register. This gives you the same privileges of other registered students, such as access to library resources, etc.

To register, you simply pay the $100 registration deposit accompanying the mail registration form.

Registrations will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis according to the following schedule: summer/fall course registration begins in early May and spring/winterim registration begins in early December. This schedule is based on when continuing students are done registering (first of May and first of December). Non-degree seeking students cannot register before degree seeking students.

After your registration is processed, you will be sent an email by the Office of the Registrar. The email includes a copy of your class schedule and instructions on how to activate your myPoint account, access texts, and obtain a Point ID Card.
