ADMINISTRATIVE, EDUCATIONAL AND SUPPORT SERVICES

Academic and Student Services

Academic and Student Services are intended to help students with their personal, academic and vocational development, and to help them become informed, responsible decision-makers. These services are designed to complement the teaching mission of the University. 

Academic Advising (UARC)

The Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC) is located on the second floor of the Student Success Center. The office staff is available to serve all University undergraduate students, faculty and staff from 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, twelve months a year. Hours are extended during peak periods as announced on the web 

www.uwosh.edu/advising.

All undergraduate students are assigned an adviser in the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center when they meet advising criteria for their major established by the department/college. Graduate students are assigned an adviser from their appropriate academic program.

The advisers in the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center work with faculty from colleges and departments in order to best assist students in the development of academic goals and strategies for success in meeting College and University graduation requirements. Their responsibilities include: advising new students regarding appropriate courses consistent with their interests, skills, values, high school record, ACT results, majors/minors of interest and academic and career objectives; advising continuing students regarding major and career options, appropriate courses based on interests, skills, values, academic and career objectives, personal goals, financial concerns and appropriate referrals; and communication regarding overloads, late add/drops, late withdrawal from the University, course waivers/substitutions, curriculum modifications, general education/USP requirements, major/minor/degree requirements and graduation requirements. Advisers are responsible for administering College and University policy.

Academic Computing

Academic Computing provides computer support to students, faculty and staff of UW Oshkosh. We provide support by maintaining:  email services, the UW Oshkosh Help Desk, file storage services, five general access student computer labs, web services and all university-owned computers.

Students are automatically given an email account on the UW Oshkosh email server as soon as they are admitted. This email account can be accessed on or off-campus using the TitanMail link. Faculty, advisers and campus administrators use the assigned student email address to communicate deadlines, events and other useful information to all students. The email system also includes a web calendar. For assistance with their TitanMail account, students should contact the UW Oshkosh Help Desk.

The UW Oshkosh Help Desk is located in Dempsey 207.  It is open 7:45 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Help Desk relocates to Radford Lab during the Sunday and Monday of Labor Day weekend to assist students returning to campus with password changes. The Help Desk is accessible in person, by phone at (920) 424-3020, or via email at acshelp@uwosh.edu. Students in the Residence Halls should call ResNet/MIO at (920) 424-0863 for assistance with the computer connection in their rooms.

The student file storage server is accessible directly from the five computer labs and through internet connection from the residence halls and off-campus. Each student is assigned a username, password and 75M of storage space on the student server. The username and password students use to access their personal server folder are the same credentials they will need to use computers in the five student computer labs. In addition, students are given 500M of storage on Titan Files, a collaborative web-based file storage system. The username and password students use to access Titan Files is the same as their TitanMail account.

The student computer labs are located in Clow Classroom 238, Halsey Science 101, Polk Library 118, Radford basement, Sage 229 and Swart Hall 229.  The Halsey computer lab is open 24-hours during academic terms.  The over 450 computers in the labs are replaced on a 3- to 4-year cycle and include Windows, Macintosh and Linux operating systems.  Students may use the computers to assist them with any course, whether or not the course explicitly requires computer use.

Upon request, students can be assigned an account and space on the UW Oshkosh web server to create their own web pages. These requests and other calls for assistance using the labs or student accounts can be made to the UW Oshkosh Help Desk, located in Dempsey 207 (acshelp@uwosh.edu or (920) 424-3020). 

Additional information, including hardware recommendations, campus wireless access locations and reduced cost software information, can be found at http://www.acs.uwosh.edu.

Children's Learning and Care Center

Our mission is to provide exemplary early care and education through the use of early childhood best practices within a safe and caring environment for children and families in the UW Oshkosh learning community and our collaborating partners.

Because we believe that children learn best through play and active engagement in their learning environment, we purposely plan and implement meaningful experiences based on Creative Curriculum and Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards and Guiding Principles. To assure that all children experience success, we partner with parents and use information gained from observation and individual assessment to intentionally teach and support the learning and development of each child.

Project Success

Project Success is an academic remediation program for adults with specific language-based learning disabilities and dyslexia. These students are academically able and have determination to succeed in spite of a pronounced problem in one or more of the following areas: reading, spelling, arithmetic, writing and/or speaking. Project Success students are mainstreamed into the regular university curriculum across all four colleges: Letters and Science, Education and Human Services, Business and Nursing.

Dr. Robert Nash, Professor of Education and the first Director of Project Success, started the pilot program in 1979 with seven students. Today, there are over 350 students. Academic remediation has expanded to include the areas of written expression, comprehension of written and spoken language, math and the social aspects of dyslexia. Project Success has received both national and local recognition through television, radio and the print medium.

The goals of Project Success are:

1. That each student become academically and socially independent.

2. That each student graduate from UW Oshkosh or another post secondary educational institution.

Help offered to reach these goals includes:

1. Direct remediation of reading, spelling and arithmetic deficiencies through the use of an adaptation of the Orton-Gillingham technique. The technique consists of direct instruction and other instructional practices that train the students across a summer program to simultaneously use their visual, auditory and kinesthetic senses in learning how to use the language's phonemic (sound) structure to read and spell. Our summer transition program is a prerequisite to the academic-year program for students who are not admitted in full standing.

2. Tutoring assistance throughout each term.

3. Understanding the effects of dyslexia upon one's life through an organized summer program which uses group dynamics and interaction to help participants come to an understanding of the social and psychological effects of dyslexia and to help them deal with those effects.

Applying to Project Success

Prospective students must send a handwritten letter expressing interest and requesting a Project Success application. Please include:

Name of applicant

Address

Telephone number

Name of parent/guardian (if applicable)

Those interested should apply no more than two years prior to desired entrance. The completed application will be placed on the active list for the desired entry date. Approximately one year before entrance, the applicant, with parent(s), will be scheduled for an assessment and personal interview.

Important:
Acceptance into Project Success does not grant acceptance into the University. Admission to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and acceptance into the Project Success Program is a joint but separate process. University of Wisconsin Oshkosh admissions procedures must be followed before acceptance into Project Success can be offered. The current minimum requirements for entry into the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh as a Project Success student is:

  • English 3-4 years must be in regular education curriculum

Women's Advocacy Council

Our goal is to incite University of Wisconsin Oshkosh students, staff and faculty to become politically and socially active in creating gender equity and empowering women. In order to accomplish this goal, we work to: raise awareness of impediments to gender equity, collaborate with other UWO organizations to promote attitudes and policies that empower women and provide an atmosphere where individuals seeking gender equity and women's empowerment can interact, discuss current events, and plan social and political activism. In order to accomplish these objectives, we attend community, regional and national activist events; we organize informational, social and activist events on the UWO campus; and we work toward educating the campus community, through the distribution of information about current issues that relate to gender equity and women's empowerment. All students are encouraged to participate in the council. More information is also available at: http://womensadvocacycouncil.blogspot.com/.

United Students in Residence Halls

The United Students in Residence Halls (USRH) is the overall residence hall governmental body. The purpose of USRH is to provide an opportunity and means of self-expression and self-government by the students living in the residence halls on the Oshkosh campus. It serves as a recommending body to the Department of Residence Life and other departments that can relate to and affect student life in residence halls. USRH is based on the philosophy that student input is necessary when determinations are made on policies that impact student conduct, social and academic programming and operational procedures. Each residence hall has USRH representatives that have been elected or appointed by individual hall governments. USRH also has an executive board composed of officers elected by the students for a one-year term.

Along with having the opportunity to be part of the legislative body, hall residents are encouraged to actively participate in one of the organization's many committees. Students may be part of the USRH Hall Funds Committee, Leadership Development Committee, Programs Committee, Constitution Committee, Food Committee and Safety and Security Committee and other task forces and ad hoc committees. For more information regarding specific committees, contact the USRH office.

As well as offering these opportunities for involvement, USRH sponsors two weekend leadership retreats each year, provides funding to individual halls for nonalcoholic programs. Residents are also given the chance to attend several state, regional and national residence hall association conferences each year.

RESIDENCE LIFE

Housing Policy

The Wisconsin Board of Regents housing policy states that all freshmen and sophomore students (students who have not earned 60 or more units (crs.) as of the first day of classes) who are not veterans, married or living with parent(s) or guardian, shall be required to live in a University-operated residency hall when such accommodations are available.

The UW Oshkosh Department of Residence Life also exempts those students who have prior to the first day of classes, reached 21 years of age or, earned at least 48 credits or, resided on campus for four semesters or, commute from their parent's permanent home address within 45 miles of UW Oshkosh (annual submission of commuter card is required until one of the above requirements is met).

All transfer students who do not fall into any of the four above categories will need to reside on campus or file an appeal.

Residence Halls

Residence hall facilities are offered on a contract basis for the full academic year. The dining service contract is incorporated within the housing contract and is discussed below under University Dining.

The residence halls on the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh campus are an integral part of the University community. More than a convenient place to sleep, the residence hall provides an environment where an individual may grow intellectually, socially and culturally. Each residence hall community offers opportunities to become involved in self-government, hall programs and recreational opportunities. Intended benefits of residence hall life are that students will learn to assume responsibility for developing their individual lifestyles while also learning to get along with other people.

Each residence hall is staffed by a Residence Hall Director, who is assisted by a staff of Community Advisors. Residence hall councils, under the leadership of United Students in Residence Halls (USRH), work for the common goals of all residents. Students and staff work together to make the residence hall a desirable place in which to live.

When a student is admitted to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, they will receive a housing pamphlet with their admission letter. This will direct them to the online housing application. Any student who would like to reside on campus must complete the online housing application and pay a $150.00 housing deposit. The housing deposit is applied toward the spring term room fee. Residence Hall assignments are made without regard to race, color, religion, national origin or sexual orientation. 

All residence halls, except Donner, Horizon, North Scott, South Scott, South Gruenhagen, Taylor and Webster are closed for Thanksgiving break and spring recess.

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh campus includes nine residence halls that house more than 3,200 students. Types of living arrangements that are available include coed high-rise halls, coed low-rise buildings and a suite style hall.  The residence halls provide recreation, study, laundry and kitchen facilities, plus a variety of educational, social and recreational programs to make the hall a living and learning center.
