UWMC students register online via PRISM, the PeopleSoft Relational Information System. PRISM is a web-based system, so students can register from home, from the campus computer labs or wherever there is internet access. New students will need to participate in UWMC's summer orientation and registration program before registering on PRISM.
Academic advising services are available in UWMC's Office of Student Affairs. To make an appointment, call (715) 261-6235 or stop in Student Affairs, room 150. If a class is closed because it has reached its enrollment limit, you will need to select an alternate course or check for space availability another day. Registration dates and times for incoming students will be announced.
A $100 Advance Tuition Deposit, (ATD) which will be applied toward tuition, must be paid before you can register. It is refundable if you withdraw from classes prior to July 1 for fall or prior to December 1 for spring. If you withdraw on or after those dates, you forfeit your $100 ATD. When you pay the ATD and register for classes, you are considered financially committed to UWMC. This means if you want to withdraw from all your classes, you must officially withdraw through PRISM or you will owe full tuition and fees. You will not be officially withdrawn for simply not paying tuition.
You may add courses in PRISM until the 1st day of the semester. Courses added once the semester has started can only be done with permission of the instructor.
You may, with the written consent of the instructor, audit a course. For more information: www.uwc.edu/admissions/definitions/auditors
As a freshman or sophomore, you may enroll in up to 18 credits during the fall or spring semester. High school special students are limited to six credits per semester. Credit restrictions also may be imposed on students designated as high risk. Students requesting more than an 18-credit course load must request an exception and will pay additional tuition above 18 credits.
You may enroll in elective courses on a pass/fail basis. For further information see course catalog: www.uwc.edu/academics/catalog/information.pdf

You may drop a course or courses during the first 10 weeks of a semester-long course, the first five weeks of an eight-week course, or a proportionate time for shorter courses. If you drop a course after the second week of classes (first week for spring), a grade of "W" will be recorded on your official record. You can drop courses through your online registration account in PRISM.
If you withdraw or drop credits, please contact the Business Office -- you may owe a percentage of tuition, based on the date your withdrawal is recorded in Student Affairs. If you withdraw within 5 days -before or after- the first day of the SESSION, a $50 withdrawal fee will be charged to your account. CONTACT THE BUSINESS OFFICE FOR THE EXACT SESSION START DATE AND THE PERCENT OF REFUND BASED ON YOUR WITHDRAWAL DATE.
Withdrawal means terminating your registration in all courses for the semester. You must withdraw no later than the 10th week of classes in any semester, or a proportionate time for a shorter session. If you do not withdraw in any of the ways below, you will receive grades in all courses for which you were registered. Nonattendance does not constitute official withdrawal.
