    Online Orientation Modules

    The first module that you should review is our Visa & Arrival page for help with the logistics of arriving in Madison, Wisconsin. Our Course Enrollment and Academics modules will help you find and enroll in courses, as well as learn about how our courses are structured. 

    The modules on Student Life and Getting Around will help you learn more about how to get involved and how to get to your classes.  Finally, our Health & Safety module will help you to stay healthy and safe during your time on our campus.

    We recommend you visit each page to gain a broader understanding of your upcoming adventures.
