In addition to enjoying a 20:1 faculty-to-student ratio, UW Oshkosh students have a large number of academic resources available to help them be successful in and out of the classroom.
Some of these resources include:
Full-time academic advisers are available to assist students in navigating degree requirements, course scheduling and exploration of goals and academic interest.
In addition to free personal counseling services, students can set up a time to receive career and academic counseling, or visit Annie, one of the nation’s only collegiate therapy dogs.
Campus Computer Labs
Every academic building is equipped with both PC and Mac computers, which feature all the latest software programs. One lab (Halsey) is always open 24/7 for student access, and every computer lab offers black-and-white printing for students. Residence halls are also equipped with computer labs and printing.
Full-time Faculty and Office Hours
Professors teach all courses at UWO, and we do not employ teaching assistants (TAs). Professors have scheduled office hours for questions, exam review or other inquiries regarding material.
One-one-one or group tutoring sessions are available through the Center for Academic Resources (CAR) for any course on campus. Students can receive up to five hours of tutoring per week free.
Students can drop in at the Math Lab to receive assistance on any math assignment Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., with some evening hours as well.
Available to students seeking assistance with writing or speaking projects at any stage in the writing process, the Writing Center partners with various offers around campus to cater to all types of writing or speaking requirements. Evening and weekend hours are available to accommodate students’ schedules.
Reading Study Center
In addition to offering several 1- and 2-credit courses, the Reading Study Center assists with test prep, academic reading, note-taking and preparation for Praxis I and Praxis II (for the College of Education and Human Services), as well as the GRE (for graduate school).
Supplemental Instruction (SI)
SI is for students in select 100- and 200-level courses. Students can attend regular review sessions of material, as well as engage in group review for exams.
