NOTE: Our transfer process is Web supported. You will not be receiving any printed materials or letters.

Step 1: Submit Tuition Deposit

In order to continue with the post-admission steps, you will need to submit a $100 tuition deposit. Once the deposit is received and processed, you will be eligible to schedule an academic advising appointment, access your University email account and register for classes.

Within three days of your admission being processed, you will receive an email with a link to submit your tuition deposit.

If you do not receive this email, or if the deposit is a hardship at this time, please contact one of our transfer counselors at transfer@uwosh.edu or call (920) 424-0404.

Step 2: Access Titan Web

As a student, you will have three different accounts that have different login requirements.

Titan Web is your student account from which you can find your enrollment date, enroll in classes, pay your tuition, manage your financial aid and generate reports.

Titan Web Account Tutorials

If you would like more information on using the various features of your Titan Web account, tutorials are available on the Registrar’s website.

Step 3: Access your UWO email account

You’ve already logged in to TitanWeb via step 2.

This step will get you set up with your Titan email, which is operated through Google.

Your UW Oshkosh email account is extremely important, as it is considered the official method for communication at the University. The University expects that email communications will be received and read by students in a timely fashion and recommends checking this account at least twice per week.

Approximately two days after we receive your tuition deposit, your UW Oshkosh email account will be active and ready for use.  You can verify that your account has been created by searching for your name in the online directory: www.uwosh.edu/directory.  If you can find your name, you should have a functional UWO email, ready for use.

 

How to Access Your Email

  1. Go to www.uwosh.edu/titanapps.
  2. Click on the Login to TitanApps link on the right side of the page.
  3. Enter username@uwosh.edu.
  4. Enter your password. Your initial password is your seven-digit student ID number.

You can also visit the academic computing website for additional information on how to log in.

Step 4: Activate your NetID

This is the last account you must activate as a new student. Your NetID is used as a login for computer labs on campus, to access the D2L system, to sign up for housing, to access the WiFi, to utilize your My UWO Portal and as a login for various websites. Most immediately, you will use your NetID to request an academic advising appointment in the next step.

Step 5: Transfer Advising

We strongly suggest you request an academic advising appointment as soon as possible.

Transfer students are not required to complete a formal orientation, but an advising appointment is required for all transfer students.

If the major listed at the top of the new student letter your received is no longer accurate, select the correct Intended Major when you complete the Transfer Advising Form to ensure you are scheduled with the appropriate advisor.

The Undergraduate Advising and Resource Center (UARC) will contact you within three business days to notify you of your appointment date and time.

Please complete the following electronic form to request an advising appointment: http://goo.gl/forms/idTkjJKJrQ

Student must activate their UWO email before they are able to access this form. You are only able to request an appointment online using this form.

At this time, you do not have an assigned adviser but you will be formally assigned an adviser after you have completed your advising appointment. If you have not been admitted or have not paid your deposit, you will not be able to access this form.

If you do not schedule your appointment for your first semester at UWO, a hold will be placed on your account and you will be unable to sign up for classes during your next semester.

Advisers will be able to explain college/degree/major requirements and help you interpret your transfer credit evaluation and student academic report (STAR). Your adviser will also help you select coursework for your first semester at UWO.

Online students are not required to come to campus and may request a Google video chat appointment.

Upon receipt of your $100 tuition deposit, you will receive an email (within a few days of receipt), which will list your next steps in the admissions process. It will be sent to the email address you provided on your application.

Step 6: Send AP scores, if applicable

If you took any AP tests during high school, you may be eligible for college credit. Students should have all test scores from College Board sent to UW Oshkosh.

Scores can be requested at https://www.collegeboard.org/.

UWO’s institution code is 1916.

Step 7: Register for Classes

At UWO students receive an enrollment date for each term. Students are not able to enroll for a given semester until their enrollment date. Transfer students are assigned an enrollment date based on the number of credits they transferred into UWO.

Students can easily find their enrollment appointment listed in their TitanWeb account on the right hand side of the home page. It can also be found on the student’s STAR report (see below).

If you are able to register for your courses prior to your scheduled advising appointment, we recommend that you sign up for courses and then finalize your course selections with your adviser during your appointment. 

If you do register without meeting with an advisor, it is still in your best interest to follow up with an adviser to confirm that your selected courses are going to help you achieve your desired educational path.

For further instruction on how to register for your courses, please refer to the Student Help Web page created by the Registrar’s Office. If you are unable to find the help you need on this website, please call the Registrar’s Office at (920) 424-3454.

Step 8: Sign up for placement testing, if needed

If you have completed a transferable college level math and English composition course, you do not need to take a placement test. One of the steps below will explain how to review your Transfer Credit Evaluation, which tells you if you have a transferable math and English course.

However, if you have not completed a transferable college level course in each subject, you must take a placement test. The majority of transfer students do not need a placement test, but if you are unsure, please contact the Office of Admissions at transfer@uwosh.edu or (920) 424-3164.

For placement test dates and availability, please see http://www.uwosh.edu/testing/test-information/uw-system-placement-test.

Step 9: Review UWO's housing policy and apply for housing, if required

The Wisconsin Board of Regents’ Housing Policy states that all students MUST live on campus unless they meet one of the following requirements:

  • Earned at least 48 credits by the first day of classes.
  • Lived on campus for four semesters (includes previous schools).
  • Will be 21 years old by the first day of class.
  • Commuting from a parent or legal guardian’s permanent home located within 45 miles of UW Oshkosh.
  • Married, veteran or single parent.

On Campus Living

If you will be living on campus, you can apply for housing online. Please be aware that you must have already submitted your $100 tuition deposit (step one) in order to begin your housing process. Visit the Residence Life website for more information.

Step 10: Review Transfer Credit Evaluation and STAR Report

Transfer Credit Report

Approximately two weeks after admission to UW Oshkosh, your transfer credits will have been reviewed and posted. You can see how your credits transferred by generating a Transfer Credit Report.

How to Generate Your Transfer Credit Report

1. Access your Transfer Credit Report. Once you are logged in to TitanWeb, click on the drop-down menu under “Grades, STAR & More“. Select “Transfer Credit: Report” and click the double-arrow button next to menu.

STAR (Student Academic Report)

STAR is your degree progress report, which lists course requirements for the specific degree, major and minor (if applicable) you have declared. This report indicates which requirements you have already completed, including your transfer courses, as well as the requirements you have yet to fulfill.

How to Generate Your STAR

1. Once you are logged in to Titan Web, click on the drop-down menu under “Grades, STAR and More”.

What Does My STAR Reflect?

Your STAR is personalized to you and is updated continuously to reflect courses you have completed, UW Oshkosh coursework you have in progress as well as any changes made to your record. Courses in progress at another college or university and CLEP or AP scores do not appear on your STAR report until official transcripts or score reports have been processed. Use your STAR along with the degree planning guides available on the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC) website to track your academic progress.

The Language of STAR

Your STAR uses a simple “OK” or “NO” indicator for each of your degree and general education requirements to signal which you have fulfilled and which ones you still need to complete. For general education, major or minor requirements with multiple components (for example, an area of requirement such as “Humanities”) a plus or minus sign will show up for each component. The final page of your STAR includes a helpful key for identifying course numbers, etc.

NOTE: Your STAR will not be accessible until we have received and processed your tuition deposit.

Step 11: Send final transcripts

Most transfer students are enrolled in coursework at the time of admission. Please send a final transcript to the Office of Admissions once all final grades and degrees are posted by your previous institution.

Students will not be permitted to enroll for future semesters if a final transcript is not received by the Office of Admissions within the first month of the semester.

If you have any questions about the steps listed above, please call us at (920) 424-3164 or email us at admissions@uwosh.edu.

Step 12: Take Care of the Details

Titan Card

Once you have enrolled in a class, you will be able to obtain your UW Oshkosh student I.D. (also known as your Titan Card). To do so, you will need to go to Titan Central, located in Reeve Memorial Union, with a photo I.D.You also will need $20 to cover the cost of your Titan Card.

For more information on the uses of your Titan Card, visit Reeve Memorial Union.

Parking

Parking permits are available for commuter and resident students at various costs depending on your needs. To obtain a parking permit, stop by Parking Services located in the lower level of Blackhawk Commons.

For more information about parking permits, costs and parking maps, visit Parking Services.

Textbooks

University Books & More is our campus bookstore and is located in Reeve Memorial Union. To determine what textbooks you will need for an upcoming semester, visit the bookstore in person or online.

The website provides information on how to pre-order textbooks and identify what books you need for your courses. It also provides various textbook rental options and the textbook buy back program.

Financial Aid

Financial aid does not “transfer” so it is important to make sure you have followed the appropriate steps to receive financial aid at UW Oshkosh.

  • Fall transfer students should complete the FAFSA for the upcoming academic year as early as possible. The priority deadline at UW Oshkosh is March 15.
  • Spring transfer students who have already completed the FAFSA for the current academic year, simply need to log back into their FAFSA and add the UW Oshkosh school code (003920) in step three of the FAFSA. This will allow the Federal Processor to forward your information to the UW Oshkosh Financial Aid Office. It is your responsibility to notify your current school that you will not be receiving aid there for the spring semester.

IMPORTANT: Your UW Oshkosh email is the only form of communication used by the Financial Aid Office. Many emails will direct you to Titan Web to complete the financial aid process as well. Therefore, it is very important for you to utilize both campus email and Titan Web.

If you have any questions about your financial aid, please contact the Financial Aid Office at (920) 424-3377 or fao@uwosh.edu.

Veterans

Veterans are encouraged to contact the Veterans Resource Center at (920) 424-1804 or va@uwosh.edu or in person. The center is located in Dempsey Hall, room 130.

With proper documentation, all veterans are eligible to receive credit based upon certain types of military experience. It is standard for all veterans to receive two credits for Phy Ed 105 – a required course in all degree programs – as well as two credits of upper-level health elective for completion of basic training. Additional credit may be awarded for certain types of military education based upon an evaluation of completed work.

To receive credit, a military transcript or DD214 must be supplied to the Admissions Office.

Step 13: Attend Optional Orientation

Transfer Orientation is an optional introduction to campus, specifically for new transfer students. The program aims to ease your transition into the UW Oshkosh community and provide you with valuable information about campus resources available to you.

More information is available – including dates, times and location – on the Dean of Students website. You also can expect an invitation to be mailed to you with similar details.
