New Student Orientation

Once you are accepted as a new freshman at UWM, you are not left on your own to register for your first semester of classes. You will be invited to an Orientation program after you have taken your placement tests, paid the New Freshman Fee and have submitted a University Housing Contract (and deposit) or Housing Exemption Form. When you attend a Orientation program you will meet with other Nursing students to:

  • learn about UWM and the College of Nursing
  • meet your academic advisor
  • select your courses and register for classes
  • learn about the CON's Academic Enrichment Center


  • Our new interactive computer registration system allows you to register for your first semester classes at your Orientation program and to leave with a confirmation of your class schedule.
