The Mission of the First Year Experience office...

A student’s first year at UW-Platteville is an opportunity to explore and develop an individual’s identity and future direction.

The university is committed to creating a safe environment conducive for learning, engagement, and personal growth. To chart a pathway for success, each student will embark on an individual journey to explore and complete a degree.

The First Year Experience Program is dedicated to creating opportunities for students to develop academic and social skills that are necessary to successfully complete this journey.

Several of the opportunities available through the First Year Experience office include:

  • One-on-one conversations that include specific tips on time management, utilizing your planner, talking to professors and more.
  • UWP Study 1010- required for students in Fall 2014 who hold less than 30 college credits and are not biology or engineering majors. This one-credit course covers topics in academic success skills, time management, diversity, campus resources, and University Academic Policies.
  • Student Academic Success Seminars – peer led presentations on a variety of topics.
