Course Registration


Modern Physics for Teachers will be offered Spring 2024. You do not need to be a degree-seeking student at UW Oshkosh to register.


Step 1 | Complete Prospective Student Information Form

Download to your local computer the following electronic fillable PDF form:

prospective student information form (spring 2024)


    • Complete all fields in the form (e.g., first  name, middle initial, last name, previous name if applicable) to avoid duplicate student records.
    • For “Student Signature”, simply enter your initials.
    • Indicate whether you would like to take the course for 2 credits or 3 credits.
    • Save a copy of the form using the the filename format: student_info_Last name_First name.pdf

Note: This course is normally taken as a 2-credit course. However, teachers may enroll in the course under the “Plus-One Credit Option” (i.e., for 3-credits). Under this option, teachers study, implement, and evaluate a NGSS-aligned, model-centered lesson in their own classroom. For a summer course, this work occurs in the fall and grades are transcripted for the summer; for a fall course, this work occurs early in the subsequent spring and grades are transcripted for the fall; and for a spring course, this work occurs later in the spring (same semester) and grades are transcripted for the spring. Results are shared in the form of a written report.

Step 2 |
Submit Form and Undergraduate Transcript

Email the above completed and signed PDF form and, if you are first-time student, an unofficial undergraduate transcript to: (Dr. Mark Lattery, NGMC Director). Once your student information form is approved and signed, you will receive an email from Dr. Lattery with further instructions.

Step 3 |
Apply to UW System (New Students Only)

If you are a new student, the preceding email from Dr. Lattery (Step 2) will provide instructions on How to Apply. You will be asked to complete a short, general UW System online form to be recognized by the UW System.
