UW Oshkosh Special Groups

Out of an abundance of caution, UW Oshkosh is limiting campus tours and events for prospective students. 

UW Oshkosh has chosen to cancel all in-person visits, events, and tour reservations until further notice. Check out our virtual options on our visit page. Our top priority is to protect the health and safety of our campus community and prospective students. As changes occur, we will update this webpage with further details.

We strive to provide an enjoyable and educational experience for our guests visiting the UW Oshkosh campus. In order to make sure your visit meets these standards, please become familiar with our guidelines outlined below prior to submitting a request so we can continue to provide quality campus visits at UW Oshkosh. Please note that at this time we are only accepting special group visits to the Oshkosh campus.

Fall group visit dates are typically booked to capacity by early/mid-October and Spring dates can be booked as early as February.

Please read before submitting your request:

  • The UW Oshkosh Admissions Office is unable to sponsor funding for group visits, including transportation, dining and lodging.
  • Priority is given to groups who can schedule a visit on Tuesdays and Thursdays from the last week of September to the first week of December, and the last week of February to the last week of April.
  • Preference is given to groups who are able to be available on campus for a minimum of 2.5 hours. A Typical campus visit is 3-4+ hours.
  • UW Oshkosh group visits strive to provide a personalized experience that meets the needs of your students. You can request additions to the skeletal itinerary of an admissions presentation and campus tour (i.e. lunch).
  • We prefer that a majority of students in your group are sophomore or junior standing.
  • An official online request form needs to be successfully received a minimum of two weeks in advance of your preferred visit date.
  • When you submit an official request we are assuming you have gotten approval from your school/district and will have access to transportation.
  • Requests that are submitted for groups of larger than 40 participants are encouraged to split the group into two visit days.
  • Prior to clicking “submit” we encourage you to screen shot your entries as the form will clear your entries if the form does not successfully go through.
