Student Updates

Congratulating and celebrating all Titans

In an ordinary spring, we close the academic year with congratulations and celebration for our graduates and gratitude to our excellent faculty and staff. I will not break from tradition. However, I must state the obvious: this has been no ordinary spring.

CARES Act Emergency Grant

The federal government has established the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to help college students who are struggling with food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and/or child care expenses due to the disruptions of campus operations as a result of Covid-19.

Parking Refunds

Can I get a refund for my parking pass?

The Parking Services Office and operations are closed until Monday, May 4, 2020. Once we reopen our operations, we will be working through the requests that we have received for refunds. Parking Services will have two options available for these requests. We can issue a credit toward your future parking permit or we can issue a refund based on the refund schedule we follow every year.

Permit Type Refund*
Commuter $41.00
Mon/Wed/Fri $31.00
Tues/Thurs $19.00
Evening $11.00
Fox Cities $25.00
RR/37 $155.00
PR/23 $65.00
Lot 39/FVTC $32.00

*Because spring break began a week early on March 16, we have calculated prorated refunds from March 23.

Long-term permits are priced based on the two 14-week semesters so when someone purchases a long-term permit, we include a summer permit (normally $55) for free as a perk of purchasing this type of permit.  If on campus operations resume during the summer months we will send follow-up communication regarding options for summer permits.

Also, there are a few customers who may have purchased their permit very close to when alternative operations and classes began. We will connect with these permit holders within the first two weeks of May to discuss these refunds in more detail.

If you would like to be contacted about the possibility of a credit toward the purchase of a future permit or a refund, please complete the Parking Refund Information Request form.

Dining Credit Schedule

Dining credits for students who resided in on-campus housing are prorated from March 30, 2020.

Please note: If you live off-campus and have a meal plan, your plan will not automatically be cancelled. You may continue to use your plan through the remainder of the term or you can request a cancellation. Learn more about changes to Reeve Union services and operations.

Each meal plan credit will vary from student to student. This is due to the calculation for Classic and All Access (days left in term) and Ultimate Plans (meals remaining) and includes a refund of the Titan Dollars which were a part of your selected plan.

  • If your Titan Dollar balance was less than the original amount of Titan Dollars from your meal plan, that difference will be deducted from your meal plan credit. This will leave your Titan Dollar balance at zero.
  • If your Titan Dollar balance is equal to the original amount of Titan Dollars from your meal plan, you will be credited the full amount with your meal plan credit. This will leave your Titan Dollar balance at zero.
  • If your Titan Dollar balance is more than the original amount of Titan Dollars from your meal plan, you will be credited the full amount of Titan Dollars from your meal plan. And, this will leave a balance on your Titan Dollar account.

Below are the original meal plan amounts:

  • Classic Meal Plan: $1,575 (includes $100 Titan Dollars)
  • All Access Plan: $1,675 (includes $100 Titan Dollars)
  • Ultimate Platinum: $1,850 (includes 200 meals and $300 Titan Dollars)
  • Ultimate Gold: $1,520 (includes 150 meals and $200 Titan Dollars)
  • Ultimate Silver: $1,025 (includes 100 meals and $100 Titan Dollars)

If you want additional information on your individual calculations, please send an email to dining@uwosh.edu and we will follow up on your credited amount.

Writing Center

Oshkosh Campus

The Oshkosh campus Writing Center offers Online and eTutoring appointments during normal hours. Click here to schedule an appointment online. The Writing Center offers two different methods for writers to meet with consultants about their writing online – Online Video Chats and eTutoring appointments.

  • Online Video Chats last 50 minutes and are similar to face-to-face sessions but take place online. Students will work in real-time using video chat with a writing consultant to get feedback on their writing. These sessions work well for all stages of the writing process.
  • eTutoring appointments are online appointments where writers upload a draft and receive both written and recorded feedback. These sessions work best if students already have a draft for writing consultants to review. One benefit to these sessions is that they are asynchronous, so students can still get feedback even if they are not available to meet with us at the time of the appointment.
  • More information can be found on the Writing Center website.

Access Campuses

Fond du Lac campus and Fox Cities campus students may send an email to a writing tutor at fox-writingcenter@uwosh.edu or submit a paper and receive feedback from an Online Writing Lab tutor within 2 business days. View more information about writing help on the access campuses here.
