Registration for Classes

Generally, graduate students may register for the fall term in April, for the spring term in October, and for the Summer Session in March. When registration for a term begins, online registration is available only prior to the start of a term. Prior to registering for each term, graduate students should consult with their program director regarding their course selection and program plan. Some programs, such as Food and Nutritional Sciences, Mental Health Counseling, and Risk Control require the consultation to allow removal of a registration hold.

The class schedule contains listings for all UW-Stout course offerings. It is available online by selecting “Class Search” on the UW-Stout homepage. Those numbered 700 and greater are graduate-level only. Those numbered 500 and 600 have a counterpart undergraduate course number.

All policies affecting students in the areas of add and drop deadlines, class attendance, grading and other helpful information are available on the Registration and Records Office website.


Current Address

Permanent home and local addresses are recorded in the university’s student records system. Students are required to submit a valid address when they register and to keep the university apprised of any address changes. The local address, where you live while you are a student at UW-Stout is used for most university correspondence. It is the address to which the Student Business Services Office will mail an initial bill covering tuition and fees for each term during which you are enrolled. Students may submit a change of address to the Registration and Records Office (109 Bowman Hall), or the Graduate School (208 Robert S. Swanson Learning Center) anytime. You can also change your address online. When changing your address, be sure to indicate whether you are changing your permanent, local or other address.
