Registration Information

New Student Registration Sessions

All new freshmen are required to attend a New Student Registration Session. The UW Placement Test must be completed a minimum of two weeks prior to the registration session.

At these sessions, students will be divided into small groups and taken to a computer lab. Once in the lab, students will be given a brief tutorial on UWMC’s record system, PRISM. 

If a student will be 18 years of age by the day of their registration session, the PRISM tutorial will also include instructions for accepting the Financial Terms and Conditions.

If a student will not be at least 18 years old on the day of their registration session, they will be mailed a copy of the Financial Terms and Conditions for Minors one week prior to their session. This form must be completed by the student and parent and returned to the Student Affairs Office prior to or on the date of their registration session.

The students will then meet with an academic advisor, review placement test scores, and enroll in courses for the following semester.

These sessions are approximately 2 hours. As space in the computer labs is limited, any guests will be asked to wait for their students in a separate area.
