A: Not all courses have equivalent courses at UW Oshkosh or are at University level. If you feel that a course should be re-examined, ask your academic advisor. We will gladly take a look and help you with the process.


QWhen/how do I sign up for housing?

A: You will want to view the Department of Residence Life Website where you can learn about the housing contract, rates, roommates, etc. If you have any questions, please contact the Residence Life Office.

Third Party Access

QHow do I get permission for my parent/guardian to talk to Financial Aid, Advising, etc?

A: You will need to log in to Titan Web to grant access to a third party. Under the Personal Information section of Titan Web, there is a blue link that says “Grant Access to Others.” Click on this link and follow the steps to allow others to view your information.


Q: How do I schedule an appointment with my advisor? 

A: Follow the instructions (PDF) from Admissions to access your UWO email account. Once you are logged in, look for an email about setting up your advising appointment. The email should contain a short online form for you to fill out, including your major of interest and availability. The form goes directly back to the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC), where it will be processed by the transfer team. Someone from the transfer team will contact you after your form has been processed to set up your appointment. (You will need to be logged in to your UWO email to access this form)

QHow do I cancel/reschedule my appointment?

A: If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please call the UARC at (920)424-1268.

QHow far in advance can I schedule my appointment?

A: We can schedule appointments as far as three weeks in advance.

QWhat if I can’t get to UWO for an appointment?

A: If you cannot come to UWO for your appointment, we can schedule you for a Google Hangout appointment instead. If you are interested in this option, please indicate it on the online advising form and/or when you call to reschedule.

QCould I just stop in to talk to an advisor about classes if I’m already around campus?

A: No. For your initial transfer appointment, you must use the online form to schedule your advising appointment. We cannot guarantee the advisor for your program will be available to meet with you if we cannot reserve their time in advance.

Once you have had your initial appointment, you can simply stop by the front desk of the UARC, or call (920) 424-1268 to set up a meeting.

Q: Can I just skip filling out the online form since I’m already on the phone with a PAL?

A:The online form allows us to ensure you are matched with the correct advisor and that your transfer credits are processed and posted. It can sometimes take time for credits to be posted, and without them, the advisor will not know what classes you need to take. To ensure the best advising experience, we ask that you please fill out the online form to request your initial transfer appointment.

Parking for your appointment

On the day of your appointment, please visit UW Oshkosh Parking Services to obtain a Visitor Parking Permit before arriving to Academic Advising. Bring email confirmation.

This will allow you to park in any visitor lot for the entire day. Please display the parking permit in the driver’s side window, and do not park in the metered space, handicapped space, or other restricted areas.

How to Review your Degree Audit (Advisement Report)

  1. Check registration date on Advisement Report–> If your registration date has passed, schedule for classes using your Advisement Report before you have met with your advisor. Classes can be changed later if necessary.
  2. Review Advisement Report to confirm all transfer credits have been posted, including those earned by AP & CAPP courses, CLEP, IB, etc. If credit seems to be missing, contact the Admissions Office.
  3. If you have not taken an English Composition or Math course for college credit, and have never taken a UW System placement test, you will need to do so. Please visit the Testing Services Website for more information.
  4. Check your records for accuracy by reviewing your degree audit (Advisement Report). Watch the UARC Advisement Report video. The video will show you how to read your Advisement Report and explain the requirements here at UW Oshkosh.
  5. Note any questions you have and bring them to your appointment with your advisor.

Transfer Testimonials
“I transferred from the University of Minnesota after my freshman year of college. My transfer experience coming into Oshkosh was relatively painless. All the resources available to me and the extremely explicit steps that were outlined helped make my transition easy. I talked with Houa Xiong. She was great! She made a real effort to understand my individual circumstances and help me out. I contacted the Admissions office first, and then the PALs soon after. They gave me all the resources I needed and everything was very easy to find online. I honestly Had a very easy time transferring. Beyond wishing two credits that didn’t transfer would have, I have no complaints. I really enjoyed the prompt and full communication. There was always a quick answer whenever I had a question. 
My advice to other transfer students would be: Do each step as early as you can and do not hesitate to call or email anyone with questions!”
-Cameron O’Connell: UW Oshkosh Management major 
I transferred from Arizona State University (ASU) after my freshman year of college, so I came to UWO in the fall of 2012. I’ve been here ever since, and I’m now a senior! The advisor I spoke to was Michelle Gross. She was great! She made me feel welcome and really helped me with setting up the classes that I needed. When I transferred I basically looked at the website first, and then went on a campus tour. I toured a bunch of campuses and I just liked the feel of UWO. I talked to people that I knew that already went here and they gave me advice on things like dorms, meal plans, classes, etc. I do think the website is easy to navigate and helped me figure out what I needed to do to transfer as well. My favorite part of the transfer experience was getting to start over. I was excited to come back, and make some friends! I recommend transferring to UWO. My advice to other transfer students would be to get involved! It think what made the transfer great was putting myself out there, and being able to make new friends.”
