First-Year Experience

New Freshmen -- To help maximize your advising session, please complete the following worksheets and return the information to the UWSP Admissions Office prioir to your orientation date.   

Step 1 

Print the General Education Program Advising Worksheet and identify at least 8-10 courses on the worksheet that interest you.  Use the General Education Program (GEP) booklet to review course descriptions.  

When selecting courses, identify at least 1-2 courses of interest from each category. For example, under the Investigation Level students are required to take at least one 3 credit course from the Arts, Humanities, Historical Perspectives, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences categories to graduate.  Several course options are available, so identifying 1-2 courses of interest will truly help your adviser build a schedule. Don’t worry about how the courses will match with your intended major(s). At the August Orientation, your academic adviser will meet with you to finalize your schedule based on your major, course interests and seat availability.

Step 2

Print a copy of the First Year Seminar Advising Worksheet and identify at least 8-10 First Year Seminar courses that interest you.  Use the First Year Seminars: Fall 2014 booklet to review these course descriptions. 

Step 3

Scan ( or Fax (715-346-3296) the following worksheets to the UWSP Admissions Office. 


We look forward to meeting you at New Student Orientation!
