Undergraduate Events & Things

“Undergraduate Events & Things” is an email newsletter sent out weekly. If you’d like to be in the know about CS events on campus, sign up to be on our mailing list here.

From the CS Advising Team, we hope you have a great summer!

Waitlist FAQs

A course shows “available seats”. Why can’t I enroll? If a course is waitlisted and shows “available seats”, those seats will be given to students on the waitlist. If you enroll or swap into a course that is waitlisted with available seats, you will be placed on the waitlist.

When are seats given away? Waitlists are managed on Mondays and Thursdays until August 22, when waitlists will be monitored daily. If you are given a seat off the waitlist, you will get an email inviting you to enroll. Make sure to check your wisc.edu email address on Tuesdays and Fridays if you are on a waitlist.

How do I enroll? You will not be automatically enrolled in the course – you must enroll through the enroll app. The waitlist invites expire after 1-2 days, so make sure to enroll right away.

What if I absolutely need this course? Please work with your advisor. Advisors cannot let you off a waitlist in appointments, but can discuss options with you.

Peer Mentor Interest Form

The Department of Computer Sciences is now collecting information from undergraduate students who are interested in being a CS course Peer Mentor. Peer Mentors assist with offering office hours and study sessions. By completing this form your information will be available to CS course instructors, who will contact interested students and make hiring decisions. Log-in with your UW google account and complete the survey at: https://forms.gle/W417cShcgK6X1rN56 .

Summer Advising

The CS Advising Team will offer appointments throughout the summer except during the weeks of Transfer SOAR: June 6-10, June 27-July 1, and August 8-12. We’ll have both in-person and virtual options.
