Summer courses begin May 31. Registration for enrolled students starts March 14. To ensure your place in our program next semester, please send us all of your application materials at least one month before classes start.
While we make every effort to accommodate late applications and will accept applications up to the first day of the semester, starting your application early will ensure you have plenty of time to gather required materials (such as transcripts), transfer credits, order textbooks, apply for financial aid, and complete the University of Wisconsin System Online Admission Application.
Please see our Course Schedule for course dates.
