September 2014 News and Information
Important Note to all Students -
Get Started Successfully
The fall semester has begun! Remember that your student account in Titan Web holds a great deal of information including your class schedule, tuition bill, financial aid and access to your STAR and unofficial transcript. Students can set up a payment plan, make payments, and arrange for direct deposit of financial aid refunds from this location as well. Billing inquiries should be directed to Student Accounts at
(920) 424-1332, email@example.com or Dempsey Hall, room 236.
It is important to regularly check your Titan Apps (campus email) account when enrolled in classes and during holiday breaks, interim and summer session. Email is the standard form of campus communication. It is highly likely that your campus email account will be the only means of campus notifying you of important information! D2L (Desire2Learn) is another student account that should be checked regularly.
Titan Apps, Titan Web and D2L can all be accessed from the UW Oshkosh homepage by clicking on Titan Services located in the upper right hand corner.
If you experience difficulty with campus technology, please use the online tutorials that are available to help you.
