Academic and Student Services

Academic and Student Services are intended to help students with their personal, academic and vocational development, and to help them become informed, responsible decision-makers. These services are designed to complement the teaching mission of the University.

Academic Advising (UARC)

The Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC) is located on the second floor of the Student Success Center. The staff of professional advisors is available to serve all University undergraduate students, faculty and staff from 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, twelve months a year. Hours are extended during peak periods as announced on the web

https://uwosh.edu/advising/  

All undergraduate students are assigned a professional advisor in the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center when they enter the university.  Once students meet the advising criteria established by the department/college of their major they are assigned to a faculty advisor. Graduate students are assigned an advisor from their appropriate academic program.

The professional advisors in the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center work with faculty advisors from colleges and departments in order to best assist students in the development of academic goals and strategies for success in meeting College and University graduation requirements. Their responsibilities include: advising new and continuing students regarding personal goals; major and career options; appropriate courses consistent with their interests, skills, values, academic preparation, majors/minors of interest and academic and career objectives; appropriate referrals; and communication regarding overloads, late add/drops, late withdrawal from the University, course waivers/substitutions, curriculum modifications, general education/USP requirements, major/minor/degree requirements and graduation requirements. Advisors are responsible for administering College and University policy.  Students are encouraged to meet with their assigned advisor each semester.

Project Success

Project Success is an academic remediation program for adults with specific language-based learning disabilities and dyslexia. These students are academically able and have determination to succeed in spite of a pronounced problem in one or more of the following areas: reading, spelling, arithmetic, writing and/or speaking. Project Success students are mainstreamed into the regular university curriculum across all four colleges: Letters and Science, Education and Human Services, Business and Nursing.

Dr. Robert Nash, Professor of Education and the first Director of Project Success, started the pilot program in 1979 with seven students. Today, there are over 350 students. Academic remediation has expanded to include the areas of written expression, comprehension of written and spoken language, math and the social aspects of dyslexia. Project Success has received both national and local recognition through television, radio and the print medium.

The goals of Project Success are:

  1. That each student become academically and socially independent.
  2. That each student graduate from UW Oshkosh or another post secondary educational institution.

Help offered to reach these goals includes:

  1. Direct remediation of reading, spelling and arithmetic deficiencies through the use of an adaptation of the Orton-Gillingham technique. The technique consists of direct instruction and other instructional practices that train the students across a summer program to simultaneously use their visual, auditory and kinesthetic senses in learning how to use the language’s phonemic (sound) structure to read and spell. Our summer transition program is a prerequisite to the academic-year program for students who are not admitted in full standing.
  2. Mathematics, English, Spanish, and organizational tutoring assistance throughout each term.
  3. Understanding the effects of dyslexia upon one’s life through an organized summer program which uses group dynamics and interaction to help participants come to an understanding of the social and psychological effects of dyslexia and to help them deal with those effects.

Applying to Project Success

Prospective students must send a handwritten letter expressing interest and requesting a Project Success application. Please include:

Name of applicant

Address

United Students in Residence Halls

The United Students in Residence Halls (USRH) is the overall residence hall governmental body. The purpose of USRH is to provide an opportunity and means of self-expression and self-government by the students living in the residence halls on the Oshkosh campus. It serves as a recommending body to the Department of Residence Life and other departments that can relate to and affect student life in residence halls. Each residence hall has USRH representatives that have been elected or appointed by individual hall governments. USRH also has an executive board composed of officers elected by the students for a one-year term.

RESIDENCE LIFE

Housing Policy

The Wisconsin Board of Regents housing policy states that all freshmen and sophomore students (students who have not earned 60 or more units (crs.) as of the first day of classes) who are not veterans, married or living with parent(s) or guardian, shall be required to live in a University-operated residency hall when such accommodations are available.

The UW Oshkosh Department of Residence Life also exempts those students who have prior to the first day of classes, reached 21 years of age or, earned at least 48 credits or, resided on campus for four semesters or, commute from their parent’s permanent home address within 45 miles of UW Oshkosh (annual submission of commuter card is required until one of the above requirements is met).

All transfer students who do not fall into any of the four above categories will need to reside on campus or file an appeal.

Residence Halls

Residence hall facilities are offered on a contract basis for the full academic year. The dining service contract is incorporated within the housing contract and is discussed below under University Dining.

The residence halls on the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh campus are an integral part of the University community. More than a convenient place to sleep, the residence hall provides an environment where an individual may grow intellectually, socially and culturally. Each residence hall community offers opportunities to become involved in self-government, hall programs and recreational opportunities. Intended benefits of residence hall life are that students will learn to assume responsibility for developing their individual lifestyles while also learning to get along with other people.

Each residence hall is staffed by a Residence Hall Director, who is assisted by a staff of Community Advisors and Health Advocates. Residence hall councils, in partnership with United Students in Residence Halls (USRH), work for the common goals of all residents. Students and staff work together to make the residence hall a desirable place in which to live.

When a student is admitted to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, they should be directed to the online housing application. Any student who would like to reside on campus must complete the online housing application and pay a $150.00 housing deposit. The housing deposit is applied toward the spring term room fee. Residence hall assignments are made without regard to race, color, religion, national origin or sexual orientation.

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh campus includes nine residence halls that house more than 3,200 students. Types of living arrangements that are available include coed high-rise halls, coed low-rise buildings and a suite style hall.  The residence halls provide recreation, study, laundry and kitchen facilities, plus a variety of educational, social and recreational programs to make the hall a living and learning center.
