Forget Your Password or Having Trouble Logging In?

Contact UW Oshkosh’s academic computing help desk at (920) 424-3020. They will be able to assist you. Please make sure to have your student ID number available before calling.

You can also visit the academic computing website for additional information on how to log in.

Set Up Your Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication is two-step verification process that each UWO student must use when accessing their Outlook email account. This authentication process is to better secure your email, especially when accessing sensitive information. Because passwords can be forgotten, stolen, or compromised, this additional security step helps to make your account more difficult for others to access.

Steps to complete the MFA process will be included when logging into your UWO email for the first time.

Step 4: Transfer Advising

We strongly suggest you request an academic advising appointment as soon as possible. 

Please complete the following electronic form to request an advising appointment:

If the major listed on your application is no longer accurate, select the correct Intended Major as part of the Transfer Advising Appointment Request Form. You are only able to request an appointment using this online form.

If you are able to register for your courses prior to your scheduled advising appointment, it is recommended that you sign up for courses and then finalize your course selections with your advisor during your appointment. Students can find their enrollment appointment listed in their TitanWeb account under Enrollment Dates on the right hand side.  Be sure to click on the “Details” link to see your enrollment date. For instruction on how to register for your courses, please refer to the TitanWeb Help for Students page created by the Registrar’s Office. 

At this time, you do not have an assigned advisor. An advisor will be assigned after you have completed your advising appointment. Advisors can explain college/degree/major requirements, help you interpret your transfer credit evaluation, and assist with course selection for your first semester at UWO.

An advising appointment is required for all transfer students. All transfer credits will be reviewed and applied to the student’s record by the Registrar’s Office prior to the appointment. It is preferred for students to come to campus to meet with an advisor, however, we recognize traveling to campus is not always an option. Phone appointments or video chat appointments are available upon request.

Step 5: Register for Transfer Titan Takeoff Orientation

An email will be sent to the account listed on your application, as well as your UWO email account, inviting you to Transfer Titan Takeoff, our orientation program for new transfer students. Register as soon as possible to select a date that works with your schedule. This event will be half a day. Attending orientation is mandatory for all new transfer students in order to meet other new transfer students, connect with student resources, and ensure you are prepared for the first day of classes. Be sure to check your UWO email account regularly for up-to-date information. Advising and registration will not be included in this day, see Step 4.

All new transfer students will be charged a $150 orientation fee as well as a $20 fee. This fee will be charged to all students that attend UW Oshkosh even if they do not choose to attend Transfer Titan Takeoff.

For more information and to register for your Transfer Titan Takeoff, visit

Step 6: Submit your FAFSA

File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at as soon as possible after October 1 to be considered for financial aid. The UWO school code is 003920. The priority filing date at UWO is January 1 for the following academic year.

Step 7: Review UWO's housing policy and apply for housing, if required

The Wisconsin Board of Regents’ Housing Policy states that all students MUST live on campus unless they meet one of the following requirements:

  • Earned at least 48 credits by the first day of classes.
  • Lived on campus for four semesters (includes previous schools).
  • Will be 21 years old by the first day of class.
  • Commuting from a parent or legal guardian’s permanent home located within 45 miles of UW Oshkosh.
  • Married, veteran or single parent.

On Campus Living

If you will be living on campus, you can apply for housing online. Please be aware that you must have already secured your spot in the incoming class (step one) in order to begin your housing process. Visit the Residence Life website for more information.


Step 8: Sign up for placement testing, if needed

If you have completed a transferable college level math and English composition course, you do not need to take a placement test. Step 10 will explain how to review your Transfer Credit Evaluation, which tells you if you have a transferable math and English course.

However, if you have not completed a transferable college level course in each subject, you must take a placement test. The majority of transfer students do not need a placement test, but if you are unsure, please contact the Office of Admissions at or (920) 424-3164.

For placement test dates and availability, please see

Step 9: Review Transfer Credit Evaluation and Advisement Report

Transfer Credit Report

Approximately two weeks after admission to UW Oshkosh, your transfer credits will have been reviewed and posted. You can see how your credits transferred to UWO by generating a Transfer Credit Report.

How to Generate Your Transfer Credit Report

Access your Transfer Credit Report. Once you are logged in to Titan Web, click on the drop-down menu in your Student Center, on the left side of the screen.  You will see Grades in the box of the menu.  Click on the down arrow and select “Transfer Credit: Report” and click the double-arrow button next to menu.

If you have difficulty logging in to Titan Web, please contact the UWO I.T. Help Desk at 920-424-3020 or

Advisement Report

The Advisement Report is your degree audit/progress report, which lists course requirements for the specific degree, major, and minor (if applicable) you have declared. This report indicates which requirements you have already completed, including your transfer courses, as well as the requirements you have yet to fulfill.

Your degree audit is called the Advisement Report and can be viewed through your Titan Web account. To view your Advisement Report, please follow the instructions here. We recommend students review their Advisement Report, if possible, before meeting with an academic advisor. Your academic advisor will explain how to interpret your degree audit during your first appointment (see step 4).

What Does My Advisement Report Reflect?

Your Advisement Report is personalized to you and is updated continuously to reflect courses you have completed, UW Oshkosh coursework you have in progress as well as any changes made to your record. Courses in progress at another college or university and CLEP or AP scores do not appear on your Advisement Report until official transcripts or score reports have been processed. Use your Advisement Report along with the degree planning guides available on the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC) website to begin to select classes for the next semester and to track your academic progress.

NOTE: Your Advisement Report will not be accessible until Admissions has received and processed your hold your spot form (step 1).

Step 10: Pick up your TitanCard (student ID)

Visit Titan Central, located on the first floor of Reeve Union. Bring with you a valid form of ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, as well as your student ID number. There is a $20 fee for your TitanCard, which can be paid that day or billed to your student account. Students often pick up their TitanCard on the day of their advising appointment or during Transfer Orientation.

Step 11: Tour campus

If you haven’t already completed a formal tour of campus, we highly recommend you take one! The Admissions Office offers a variety of tour options. Sign up for a tour here.

Step 12: Apply for parking

Purchase a commuter parking permit here. Commuter student parking is guaranteed. If you’re living in the residence halls, you will be sent a parking permit application from the Parking Services Office prior to the start of the semester. Students living on campus are not guaranteed a parking permit.

Step 13: Send final official transcripts, AP/IB scores and any military transcripts

Most transfer students are enrolled in coursework at the time of admission and are admitted on a conditional basis. Send a final transcript to the Admissions Office once all final grades and degrees are posted. Many colleges and universities do not post degrees until a month or two after the end of the semester, so please ensure your expected degree is posted before sending your final transcript. Students will not be permitted to enroll for future semesters if a final transcript is not received.

If you took any AP or IB tests during high school, or received military credit, you may be eligible for college credit. Click here to view the AP and IB Credit Charts. Students should have all official score reports and military transcripts sent to the Admissions Office.

AP Scores can be requested at

UWO’s institution code is 1916.
