- Browse TitanWeb as a guest for the semester in which you’re hoping to take a course. TitanWeb will show you when a course meets, who the professor is, and a brief description of course material. Please refer to the TitanWeb help guides for assistance using TitanWeb.
- At the start of the term, come to the admissions office and request a University Special Student Auditor – 60 Plus application or click the link below. This application must be completed and signed on the first day of the term or no later than the course add deadline. A signature from the professor of your desired course is required to officially enroll.
- A valid ID is required to verify age at the time of application for first-time applicants.

Class Enrollment Process
Step 1: Activate Your NetID
After being admitted, your first step is activating your UWO NetID and choosing a password. Once you activate your UWO NetID you will be able to access many of the online services that you will use during your time as a student.
Your UWO Student ID Number and email address, both of which you will use to activate your account, is noted in your acceptance email. Your NetID is the first portion (everything before the @) of your UW Oshkosh Titan email address.
If you forget your password or ever have any issues logging in to a UWO platform, please contact our IT Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-424-3020.
Step 2: Complete the Financial Agreement
All incoming students have a Financial Agreement hold on their record. After activating your NetID, please log into TitanWeb to sign this agreement. Instructions on how to navigate to the financial agreement, and a link to TitanWeb, may be found on this page.
Step 3: Enrolling in Classes
Once you have activated your NetID and removed the hold, please reach out Sue Jaeke in the Registrars office to coordinate course enrollment.
Please note that while tuition is waived for 60+ auditors, you will be responsible for any fees associated with the class(es) you enroll in. We do have some information regarding fees on this website. We also encourage you to reach out to your instructor to verify course fees for your specific class(es).
As a reminder, your status will only remain active for ONE semester. If you would like to audit another class next semester, you will need to submit another audit application prior to the start of the semester.
Additional Tips and Resources
It is important to check your Titan email often, as many offices will only communicate with you through this account. You will log in to your Titan email using your UWOP NetID and password. Find more information about your email account.
Canvas is a digital learning platform that instructors utilize as a course tool. This tool allows instructors to communicate with the class, assign projects, give feedback, post grades, etc. Students can utilize Canvas to communication with their instructor, turn in course work, connect with their classmates, and even collaborate on projects. Most instructors do not add students to their Canvas class until the first week of class. You will log in to your Titan email using your UWOP NetID and password.
You may obtain your textbooks from University Books and More located in Reeve Memorial Union. Hours of operation can be found on the University Books and More website.
