Registering for courses online isn't difficult. The following information is intended to help you navigate this process. If you encounter difficulties, please contact Carol Botz at 920-424-0881 or firstname.lastname@example.org. She has been known to work miracles in this area.
When do I need to register for courses?
Please be sure to register well before the semester starts as we must cancel low-enrollment classes. Low enrollment is defined as classes with less than 10 students. Semesters start approximately September 1, February 1 and June 15. So don't delay, register at least three weeks before the start of the semester. Current students can start registering for spring semester courses approximately October 1, summer courses approximately March 1, and fall courses approximately March 7.
How do I find what courses are being offered and costs?
TitanWeb is our online course registration system. If you log on as a guest, you can see what courses are being offered and when.
Tuition changes each semester/year. Check out current rates on our Student Financial Services page. If a course has an additional fee it will be indicated in the Notes section for that course on TitanWeb.
How do I register for a class?
I am a student in the program
You will register for your classes online via TitanWeb. Look forTitanWeb under Titan Services in the upper right-hand corner of the UW Oshkosh homepage. See course matrix for scheduling details 10-17-11 (xls, pdf)
I was a student but my ID number doesn't seem to work
As long as you have an active student ID number, you will be able to register for classes using TitanWeb. If you have not taken a class in 2 years, your number will be inactivated. Please contact either the Graduate Studies Office (920) 424-1223, email@example.com) or Program Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance in reactivating your ID number. Or, fill out a paper registration form (scroll down to locate form) and mail (address on form) or fax it to the Graduate Studies Office at (920) 424-0247.
I am a library/media licensure-only student
You must be accepted into the library/media licensure program if you are working on this licensure, unless you are an undergraduate and this is your minor. You will then have an active ID number and can register online using TitanWeb. If you want to take any of your required classes at the undergraduate level (they will count toward licensure but not a graduate degree like the MS Educational Leadership degree), continue scrolling down this page. Instructions are given.
I am NOT a student in the program
If you haven't been accepted into the program, you can register for classes as a Special Student. Simply fill out the class registration form and mail the completed form to:
Office of Graduate Studies
Oshkosh, WI 54901
How do I drop a class?
You can add or drop classes via TitanWeb with an active student ID number. However, if you are only registered for one class, you can't drop it without first adding another class. So, add your replacement course then drop the one you don't want.
If you are only registered for one course and need to drop it contact the Registrar's Office directly ... 920-424-3454 ... for assistance with dropping the class. You will need to give them your UWO ID#, the course number (ie. ED LDRSP-764) and 5-digit class number (ie. 80092) in order for them to drop you from the class.
If have any additional questions about how to drop a course, please contact Carol Botz (email@example.com, (920) 424-0881) for assistance.
I want to take two courses and there are tiny time conflicts
If two classes meet at the same time you will have a time conflict. A paper registration card that is signed by both/all professors teaching the courses with time conflicts will need to be filled out and submitted. Please contact the department for assistance: firstname.lastname@example.org or (email@example.com), or (920) 424-0881.
If you are worried that one of the courses will be filled or canceled while you are working on gaining approval, sign up for that course via TitanWeb then contact us to get the second course added.
What if I am taking an overload?
If you are attempting to take 9 credits in the summer, it will be considered an overload. Special permission will need to be obtained. Here is the process:
Please fill out the paper graduate registration form completely. (Sign up for the first two courses on TitanWeb, use the paper form for the third course.)
Note the "overload" class on the form filling out as much information for the class as you can: course # and name, class #, etc.
Fax the form (both sides) to Carol Botz at (920) 424-0858.
We will approve the credit overload and send the form to the Office of Graduate Studies for their approval. Once approved, the form will be forwarded to registration for enrollment. It may take several days for the class to actually show up on your schedule in TitanWeb.
I want to take a class at the undergraduate level
As a graduate student it is possible to take courses at the undergraduate level, but they will not count toward your graduate degree. They can count toward your 902 initial library media license.
This requires additional paperwork on your part and you will not be able to enroll in classes electronically via TitanWeb. Rather, you will need to submit a paper registration form. To do this download the graduate registration form, which can be found on the Office of Graduate Studies Forms and Policies page, and mail it to the address on the form or fax it to the Graduate Studies Office at (920) 424-0247.
Classes requiring approval
Approval is typically required for some classes including Thesis and Independent Study. Thesis registration is open only to students who have filed an approved thesis proposal with the Office of Graduate Studies and have been admitted to candidacy. Practicum is typically reserved for library/media students working on their 902 initial license. Internship is for those students who wish to gain field experience in an area in which they are not currently employed. Independent study is for areas in which we do not offer course work. If you need to be registered for any of these classes, contact our department program assistant, Carol Botz, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (920) 424-0881.
Independent study registration requires the filing of an Independent Study Contract Form and development of objectives, activities and outcomes for the class. You may select a 1, 2, or 3 credit experience. Up to 6 hours of independent study may be applied to your degree. Each credit hour of independent study course work should equal 50 hours of effort. You should meet with the Program Coordinator or class instructor the semester before your independent study to take care of the planning details. You can find the independent study contract form on the Office of Graduate Studies Forms and Policies page.
Transfer of credits
Transfer credit is course credit earned at another institution that is accepted into your program here. Credit earned prior to program admission will be evaluated at the time of admission. Students who have been admitted to the graduate program and wish to take course work at another institution should enroll as a Guest Matriculate at that institution and secure prior approval from the Program Coordinator if you hope to apply these credits to your program. At the conclusion of the course you will need to have an official transcript sent to the Office of Graduate Studies.
Criteria for Accepting Graduate Credits
As per Office of Graduate Studies policy (see Graduate Bulletin ), up to nine credits may be transferred into the Master of Science Educational Leadership program. Credits earned prior to being accepted into the program will be evaluated when you apply. Decisions on those credits will then be indicated on your acceptance form.
Criteria for accepting credits include:
The course instructor is a regular graduate faculty member of an accredited institution, or the instructor has the qualifications comparable to regular graduate faculty and has the approval as an adjunct faculty member at the transfer institution.
The course is acceptable in a graduate degree program at the transfer institution.
The course syllabus is available with objectives, evaluation methods, and bibliography.
The course has formal meeting times and complies with the normal rule of no more than one course credit earned per week and 14 contact hours (60 minutes each) per semester credit.
The course is offered at a location close to a university (professional) library.
The academic program and/or institution are appropriately accredited.
The seven-year time limit is applicable for all courses to be part of a master's degree.
Independent study, seminars and workshops are generally not acceptable as transfer credits.
