Student Email Account
Once enrolled in classes, the student is assigned a UW Oshkosh email account. Email is considered an official method for communicating with UW Oshkosh students because it delivers information in a convenient, timely, cost effective and environmentally aware manner.
The University expects that email communications will be received and read by students in a timely fashion. Students are expected to check their UW Oshkosh official email account on a regular basis. Many professors will communicate assignments and other information via email. The student assumes full responsibility for failure to access.
Access email from the UW Oshkosh homepage by selecting "Titan Mail" from the "Titan Services" drop-down menu in the upper right corner.
Your UW Oshkosh email address will be the first five letters of your last name, the first letter of your first name and the last two digits of your student I.D. number.
Your initial password for your student email account is your seven-digit UW Oshkosh student I.D. number. You must change your initial password and set a new, personalized password before you can check your email.
For help using Titan Mail, call the Academic Computing Help Desk at (920) 424-3020. If you forget your email account password, you must go to Dempsey Hall, room 207 with your Titan Card or seek assistance at any general access student computer lab to have your password reset.
Most classes at UW Oshkosh require students to use the Desire2Learn (D2L) software system. Students use their email sign-on and password to log in to D2L.
Professors place course syllabi and course assignments on the D2L site for a specific course (often in advance of the actual start date of a class). Students are responsible for checking their course materials and assignments via D2L. Students who encounter difficulty using D2L may call the Academic Computing Help Desk at (920) 424-3020.
Titan Card (Student I.D.)
You may obtain your Titan Card (student identification card) at Titan Central in Reeve Memorial Union between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Please let the Titan Central staff person know you are a YOP student so you are not charged a fee for your Titan Card. Please be prepared to show a driver's license or some form of photo identification to receive a Titan Card. You must be enrolled in at least one class in order to be eligible to obtain a Titan Card.
You may obtain your textbooks from University Books and More located in Reeve Memorial Union. Hours of operation can be found on the University Books and More website. It is not necessary for you to pay for your textbooks when you come to the bookstore. Your school district covers your textbook expenses. However, you must present your Titan Card for verification for your books and identify yourself as a Youth Options student.
YOP students may purchase a commuter parking permit for a given term of enrollment through the UW Oshkosh Parking Services Office located in the lower level of Blackhawk Commons. For additional information about parking on campus, please visit the Parking Services website.
Rights and Responsibilities of Enrolled Students
Once enrolled, you have most of the rights of University students as well as the responsibilities including meeting deadlines for enrollment, adding and dropping courses, and withdrawing.
NOTE: Youth Options students do not pay student segregated fees, and therefore are not eligible to use the Student Recreation & Wellness Center unless they are willing to pay a modest usage fee assessed at the time they obtain their Titan I.D. card. If you wish to use the Student Recreation & Wellness Center, please state that when you obtain your student I.D. card (Titan Card) and you will be asked to pay the usage fee. You may telephone Titan Central at (920) 424-1234 to ask about the fee assessment.
