Fox Cities Campus 

Information for Transfer Students | Welcome!

Congratulations on your admission to UW Oshkosh, Fox Cities! We are excited to help you enroll in courses and prepare to transition into college.  The information on this page provides an outline of your next steps.

If you have any questions along the way, contact the Student Affairs Solution Center at foxinfo@uwosh.edu or call (920) 832-2620.


STEP 1: Hold Your Spot

It is important to fill out this short form first so that you can proceed with other important steps. You will need your UWO ID number (provided to you in your acceptance letter).


Shortly after you hold your spot, we will send you a confirmation email to the address you used on your application for admission. This email will tell you about your next steps, including how to activate your UWO NetID. Remember to check your new email often!

STEP 2: Activate Your NetID and Access Your Student Email

Your UWO NetID is the first portion of your UWO email address (everything before the @ symbol). This information is included in the email sent to you after you hold your spot.

Log into your email.

Be sure to check your email often. Many departments will only communicate with you through this address.

If you experience difficulty setting up your ID or email, please contact the IT Help Desk at (920) 424-3020 or helpdesk@uwosh.edu

STEP 3: Placement Testing

The coursework from your prior institution will be reviewed to determine if you had any transferable credit in math, English or world languages. If you do not have incoming math or English credits from another institution, you may be required to take the UW System placement tests. If you have taken the UW System placement tests previously, those results will be available to your advisor.   

If you are unsure whether or not you need to take UW System placement tests, please contact the Solution Center at (920) 832-2620. 

UW System On-Demand Online Placement Testing – Take the exams from any location with internet access at a time/date that works best for you. You must register in advance. UWO students will take the Math Test A and the English Test. Online exams must be completed at least 5 days prior to your Advising and Registration session.

If you have barriers to taking the online placement test, please reach out to the Solution Center at 920-832-2620 or foxinfo@uwosh.edu to discuss your options.


STEP 4: Advising and Registration (A&R)

An advising appointment is required for all transfer students. You are only able to request an appointment using this online form. All transfer credits will be reviewed and applied to the student’s record by the Registrar’s Office prior to the appointment.

 If you register for courses prior to your scheduled advising appointment, it is recommended that you review your course selections with your advisor. Students can find their enrollment appointment listed in their TitanWeb account under Enrollment Dates. Be sure to click on the “Details” link to see your enrollment date. For instruction on how to register for your courses, please refer to the TitanWeb Help for Students page. 

STEP 5: New Student Orientation

Orientation is an opportunity for students to get acquainted with campus before the semester begins, meet fellow classmates and get the answers to any remaining questions about college. Learn about the academic resources that are available to students, get introduced to student life opportunities and take a full tour of the Fox Cities campus. Orientation events are offered just prior to the start of the fall and spring semesters.     

Students are encouraged to invite a parent, guardian or other supporter to the event.  Students are limited to one guest.
