​School of Education Weekly Newsletter

Reminder - Education majors are required to read this weekly newsletter!

Week of November 27, 2023 – Week 13 of Fall 2023

We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving break and took some time to just breathe…and have a little fun.  It is only three more weeks and it is finals week.  It is hard to believe how fast this semester has gone.  Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for help if you need it.  

This is the second week of registration.  Juniors started registering Nov 22, sophomores will start Nov 29 and Freshmen will start December 4.  Your assigned registration date/time is based on the number of credits you have completed.   

I sent out directions on what to do if your courses are closed.  Make sure to refer back to that email if you need assistance.

You should have already found your registration date and time in AccesSPoint under My Classes and gotten it on your calendar…not the Open Enrollment date, but the actual appointment date and time.  Make sure to register on time.  Registering late, even by ½ hour, could greatly affect your ability to get into classes.  You are required to be advised and your UWSP bill must be below $500 in order to register.  

If you planned on taking a course over winterim, you should have already registered!

Below you will find additional information on:
  • How  to get in to see Professional Advisers in our Department:  Maggie Beeber, Breanna Cychosz and Karla Landwer
  • Registration timeline for winterim and spring classes
  • Links to important webpages you should save
  • How to meet with a professional adviser in the School of Education.
  • Tutoring Learning Center support on campus

Have a great week!
