Post-Admission Checklist

Congratulations on your admission to UW-Sheboygan! This page is dedicated to help you with the next steps of your journey to your first day of class. All admitted students receive an admission letter and registration information in the mail. If you have not received this information, but have submitted all application materials, please contact the Office of Student Affairs (920) 459-6633.

Once admitted, follow this step-by-step guide to complete the registration process:

Step 1 – Complete and Return the Registration Form

Please complete the registration form which was enclosed with your admission letter and return it by mail or in-person to Student Affairs, UW-Sheboygan, One University Drive, Sheboygan, WI 53081. 

Special, non-degree seeking students will not recieve a registration form; registration information is provided in the acceptance letter.

Step 2 – Activate your Student Email Account

As a new student you have been assigned a campus email account. It is important for you to access this email account to obtain communications from our institution and the office of financial aid.

Instructions to access campus email

Now that your email account is activated be sure to check it regularly.

Step 3 – Set up your PRISM Account

PRISM is the web-based system which allows you to many things related to your education including registering for classes, drop classes, check your grades, print your unofficial transcript, view your account summary and amount due and check your financial aid status.

1. Navigate to the PRISM homepage
2. Log in using your user ID and password 
Prior to registering each term you must accept the Terms and Conditions Agreement (TAC) in PRISM.

Step 4 – Placement Tests

To ensure you are registered for the appropriate level of math and English, all new freshmen need to take the Placement Tests. Transfer students without prior college credit in either area will also be required to take Placement Tests. If you are a non-degree seeking/special student and are planning to register for a course that has a prerequisite of English or math, you will be required to take the Placement Test(s) or show proof of having met the prerequisite (official transcripts must be sent to the Office of Student Affairs).

For more information about Placement Testing at UW-Sheboygan, please visit the Placement Testing page.

Step 5 – Advising & Registration

New Freshmen

New freshmen are required to attend an Advising & Registration (A&R) session. During this group session you will learn about the registration process, register for your classes, learn how to access your student accounts, and have your picture taken for your student I.D.

For more information about A&R and to review resources that will help you prepare for the registration process, please visit the New Student Advising page.

Transfer Students

Transfer students with more than 12 credits should schedule an individual appointment with an advisor to register for classes. Please call the Office of Student Affairs (920) 459-6633 to schedule an individual registration appointment.

For more information about Advising & Registration and to review resources that will help you prepare for your individual appointment, please visit the New Student Advising page.

Non-Degree/Special Students

Non-degree seeking students are not required to meet with an academic advisor prior to registration.

Please note, if you have met prerequisites elsewhere for a course you are planning to take at UW-Sheboygan, you must provide official transcripts to the Office of Student Affairs. Manual enrollment by the Office of Student Affairs may be required for courses requiring a prerequisite that you met on another campus.

If you have questions or would like to meet with an academic advisor prior to enrollment, please call the Office of Student Affairs (920) 459-6633.

Step 6 – Orientation

New students are required to attend Orientation to kick off their college experience. This is an opportunity to meet some of your classmates, learn about important campus resources and find out about campus life. Please visit the Orientation page for more information.
