Online Courses

For all information regarding online classes, visit the Online web site www.online.uwc.edu.

Academic Policies/Regulations

A complete description of academic regulations is accessible in the University of Wisconsin Colleges catalog available online at www.uwc.edu/catalog.

The regulations provide information on class attendance, credit load, grading system, sophomore standing, auditing courses, incompletes, repeating courses, dropping/adding courses, complete withdrawals, probation, retention, suspension, honors, appeals, and other academic regulations. Several of the regulations are covered in the following section.

Adding Courses

Courses may be added according to the specific dates identified for each session in the course schedule. Classes can be added online using your PRISM account. If you wish to add a class once a session has started, a permission to enroll form (available in Student Affairs) must be completed and signed by the instructor. This form should be returned to the Student Affairs office to obtain assistance with registration.  Payment is required within 24 hours of adding a class after a session has begun.

Dropping Courses

Students may drop courses online using PRISM with no grade penalty (although there may be a financial penalty) according to the following schedule:

Session Dates Drop Date
Session A - Three Weeks 1 May 27 – June 13 June 9, 2014
Session B - Six Weeks 1 May 27 – July 3 June 20, 2014
Session C - Eight Weeks 3 June 9 - August 1 July 14, 2014
Session D – Six Weeks 4 June 16 - July 25 July 11, 2014
Session E – Four Weeks 5 June 23 - July 18 July 10, 2014

No Show Policy

Regulations require that if you do not attend the first day in a course you will be dropped from the class roster.  If this results in your not being enrolled in any class, a $50 withdrawal fee will be assessed.  Reinstatement will depend upon whether an opening exists, and if permission is received from the faculty member.  You must notify the instructor before the first class session if you will be absent and wish to remain on the class roster.

Auditing Courses

A student may change from audit to credit status during the same period as allowed for adding a course and a change from credit to audit status may be done during the same period allowed for dropping a course. Some courses cannot be taken on an audit basis. Check with the Student Affairs office.


Students wishing to withdraw from all courses may complete this transaction through their PRISM account. Students who register prior to the start of classes and then withdraw from all courses must do so by the dates listed in the Dropping Courses section above to avoid a late withdrawal fee of $50.00.  If classes have started, the deadline to withdraw is also listed in Fee Information Table (q.v.).  If you are reported as a “No Show” and are withdrawn from all classes, a fee of $50 will be assessed.

Your advisor is able to assist you in determining which requirements for the degree will also apply to your major/minor.

Financial Aid

Applicants for Summer Session financial aid must have completed and filed the 2012-13 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).  A separate UW Colleges Summer Financial Aid Application will be required to determine summer eligibility.  That form is available in early April.  Forms can be found online at www.uwc.edu by clicking on Money Matters or by inquiring in the Student Affairs office.  Students must have remaining aid eligibility from the 2012-13 academic year to receive loans or grants for the summer term.  Summer Session students may be eligible for loans, work-study and grants.  Students must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits to qualify for loans and work-study.  For more information, refer to the UW Colleges Financial Aid Brochure which can be obtained at the Student Affairs office or the UW Colleges web site www.uwc.edu.

Summer student loans will be disbursed during the first week of the first summer session a student is attending. Pell Grants will be disbursed to students who are eligible at the end of the summer term.  Please work with a financial aid advisor to meet the necessary summer tuition deadlines
