​School of Education Weekly Newsletter

Week of February 20, 2017

Welcome to week 5 of the semester.

Applying to the Professional Education Program
The deadline to apply to the Professional Education Program for the spring 2017 semester is Wednesday, February 22. Remember, a deadline is not the only day to turn in an application, it is the last day. Applications are now being accepted in the School of Education Academic and Career Advising Center, 469 College of Professional Studies. Directions on applying can be found in this Newsletter under Announcements and in your SOE Advising Guide.

Summer and Fall Timetables
The timetable of courses for the Summer 2017 and Fall 2017 terms are now available in the new Student Information System, AccesSPoint. You can log in to AccesSPoint using your UWSP username and password. 

AccesSPoint looks significantly different than MyPoint and we encourage you to take some time to explore the timetable and get a feel for how it operates. A brief overview of how to search for courses has been provided from the Office of the Registrar.  

One significant change in AccesSPoint is that you must click on a course section number to see information such as:

  • course fees

  • pre-registration deadlines

  • certain sections are for specific majors only

  • not every class may meet every day

We recommend practicing with AccesSPoint now so that you have a better understanding of how to use the timetable once registration advising starts. Additional information about AccesSPoint will be made available as it is introduced to campus this Spring and Summer.

Have a great week!
