  • When you attend registration, if you are currently enrolled at another college please remember to send an official copy of your transcript to the UWSP Admissions Office as soon as your final grades are posted. You will still be allowed to register for classes on your registration date, however, your admission status will remain tentative until we receive a final transcript.
  • Program costs for the STAR program are covered in part by a matriculation fee that will appear on your semester tuition bill. The matriculation fee is a one-time fee that covers registration programming costs, Convocation, programming and commencement fees.
