UW Oshkosh Calendar 2014-2016

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh calendar makes it possible for students to choose the type and length of course they prefer. The 17-week fall and spring semesters are divided into terms of fourteen, seven and three weeks. The majority of courses are offered during a 14-week period, but many are held for double hours during the first seven weeks and some for double hours during the second seven. Intensive interim courses are offered during the last three weeks of the term. This calendar is designed to allow students more choice in selecting their schedules and to encourage the development of the participation in new educational alternatives. Students thereby enrich their total university experience with opportunities to take more courses in a term, if they wish to, and dramatically shorten the time required for graduation.

Special Features of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Calendar:

  • Choices of courses offered for fourteen-, seven- or three-week periods within each total seventeen-week fall and spring term.
  • Choices as to the number of courses to carry at any one time and still take a full load, during either a fourteen-week or full seventeen-week period.
  • Choices to begin and finish courses at different times during the year to conform to work schedules, vacation plans, field studies or other personal preferences.
  • An additional feature permits enrollment in an eight-week or either of two, four-week summer terms.

Important Graduate Program Deadlines

  • Apply for Admission to Candidacy between nine credits and 21 credits.
  • Complete graduation application by the end of the fourth week of the spring/fall semesters or the first week of the summer session in which graduation is intended.
  • Register for comprehensive examination (if program requires an examination) no later than the 10th day of semester of graduation.
  • File thesis/clinical paper/field project, field report proposal by mid-term before the semester of graduation.
  • Obtain format approval of theses, clinical papers, field projects and field reports at least three weeks before the last day of the 14-week fall term for fall graduation, three weeks before the last day of the 14-week spring term for spring graduation, or three weeks before the last day of the second four-week summer term for summer graduation.
  • File final thesis/clinical paper/field project by end of 14-week semester or by end of summer session in which the student intends to graduate (if applicable to program). NOTE: Registration for thesis, clinical paper, capstone, field project, field report and independent study are subject to the same add/drop dates as other courses as published in the semester schedule of classes.
