Week of November 13, 2017

Welcome to week 11 of the semester.

Registration for Winterim and Spring began last week and runs through December 3. Your Spring registration time can be viewed in accesSPoint under the "My Classes" tile. Winterim registration is currently open for all students.

Registration Helpful Hints

  • Help Videos are available in AccesSPoint. They are short, but extremely helpful to your successful registration. 

  • Schedule Builder is a helpful tool to create schedules; however it does have limitations. Please be aware that Schedule Builder does not know: 

    • Math and Math Education courses must be the same section number. 

    • Certain sections of some courses are major specific (i.e. NRES 150, 370). You must click the section number in the timetable to see section notes.

  • Your Shopping Cart: 

    • Students can add their spring courses to their shopping cart now under the "My Classes" tile in AccesSPoint. 

    • For any ECE, EDUC, HLED, PEX and PHED course that required pre-registration, you must make sure your shopping cart has the appropriate course and section you were assigned. 

  • Validate your shopping cart now 
    • Once your shopping cart is full, click to validate your courses. This ensures that you meet all of the pre-reqs. and other registration requirements for these courses. 

Pre-Registration Permissions Granted

  • Permission for ECE, EDUC, HLED, PHED and PEX courses have been entered in accesSPoint. You can view your permissions in AccesSPoint under the "My Classes" tile. On the left navigation, you should see "Class Permissions."  This shows you all of your permissions for summer and fall classes. 

  • Please let us know immediately if you no longer need a course for which you have received permission. We will have waiting lists for almost all courses and these extra seats will help us help other students.  

Registration Deposits

  • UWSP requires a $100 registration deposit in order to register (for each term). These deposits can be paid in accesSPoint.


  • We recommend checking for any registration holds in accesSPoint  under your "Holds" tile immediately. Students will not be able to register without clearing all holds.
