​School of Education Weekly Newsletter

Week of March 23, 2015

Welcome to week nine of the spring semester!

We hope you had a safe and relaxing spring break. Advising for summer and fall 2015 terms continues this week. Please keep the following information in mind when meeting with your adviser.
  • ​Know when you register. Your registration date/time has been posted to MyPoint. Directions for registration are also on MyPoint. 
  • Review your DPR prior to your appointment to make sure you are on track to graduate.
  • Review your SOE Undergraduate Advising Guide to make sure you are meeting expectations in a timely manner.
  • You should bring your School of Education Advising Guide, a newly printed Degree Progress Report (available on MyPoint), any planning sheets you need for Education and your major or minor, and a graduation plan (if you have one).
  • Make a list of questions or concerns and discuss them with your adviser.
  • ​Pre-registration for fall is required for all ECE and Education courses other than Education 205. The Pre-registration directions are available online and were sent last week via email.  The deadline to see your School of Education adviser is Wednesday, April 1.  Once your adviser enters your ECED and EDUC pre-registration courses, you will immediately get an email from the Education.Office@uwsp.edu email account asking you to finish your end of the process.  You will need to do that between March 23 and 11:59 pm Sunday, April 5. You must enter the semester you student teach (or graduate for Com Dis undergrads and externships for Com Dis grads), any section conflicts with non-ECED and EDUC courses and any section preferences and the reasons.  Students who choose not to pre-register or complete their portion of the process may not get into the courses they are required to take with the current fiscal concerns in the UW-System.
  • Pre-registration for courses in other departments will begin the first day the timetable is live and is typically on a first-come, first-served basis. Health Ed 280, Natural Resources 370, and Phy Ed 231 do not require permission.  The PR means you must be admitted to the Professional Education Program.
  • Pre-registration for summer Education and Early Childhood courses are not required. The PR means you must be admitted to the Professional Education Program.
  • Participate fully in the advising experience.
  • Follow through on recommendations from your adviser.
