Step 6: Register for Classes
Although it is advised, you do not need to meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for classes. In some cases, you may even be eligible to register for your courses before you are able to see an advisor.
If you do register without meeting with an advisor, it is still in your best interest to follow up with an advisor to confirm that your selected courses are going to help you achieve your desired educational path.
The date you are eligible to register for courses is determined by the number of credits you have completed. You can find this date in your Titan Web account under "Enrollment Dates" or on your STAR. This also will help you identify what courses you still need to complete.
On or after your enrollment date you will be able to register for classes using your Titan Web account. 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.
How To Read Your STAR
What is STAR?
Your STAR (Student Academic Report) is the official document we use at UW Oshkosh to chart your degree progress. Your STAR lists your general education and degree requirements, as well as the requirements associated with your declared major and minor. If you are exploring majors, your STAR will list general education requirements within a particular degree program.
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.
Make certain your STAR is correct
You are responsible for making sure that your STAR contains accurate, up-to-date information about your degree plan and major and minor. If you would like to make changes to your STAR, please visit the Undergraduate Academic Resource Center (UARC) and meet with your academic advisor, who will help you complete a request for change of degree, major or minor form. Changes to your major or degree plan are generally reflected on your STAR within 10 business days. Other changes, such as entering approved modifications to your current degree program and plan, may take longer.
Confused about your STAR?
Bring your questions and your STAR to your Titan Transfer advising session. If you waived your advising appointment but now would like to meet with an advisor, please email us at email@example.com and ask to sign up for a Titan Transfer advising session.
If you must waive your advising, make sure to see your academic advisor in the UARC, located in the Student Success Center, suite 202, soon after the start of classes for the coming term.
