You've been accepted and are on the road to becoming a Blugold. There are a few things to do next to
ensure you get everything taken care of before joining your fellow
Blugolds on campus.
We'll walk you through the steps below, and if you want to track the progress of your completed next steps, log into MyBlugold CampS to see your Student Guide completion checklist. (Before you can do this, you must first activate your account--see step 1 below for details.) If you ever have any questions, we're always here to help!
After being admitted and activating your account (step 1 above), sign in to MyBlugold CampS. Once you've logged in, select Pay Enrollment Deposit from the menu on the left-hand side. From here you will indicate the term you were admitted to, whether you are a freshman or transfer student, and how you wish to pay your deposit(s). Note that if you plan to stay in the residence halls, you can pay your $75 housing deposit at the same time you pay your enrollment deposit.
Submitting your enrollment deposit is important, as orientation information is only sent to deposited students beginning in mid-March. Deposits are refundable with a written notification postmarked or emailed by May 1 for Fall/Summer and by November 15 for Winter/Spring. To request a waiver for economic hardship or inability to pay, call 715-836-5415 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wondering where you want to live? Check out the Housing and Residence Life book, which will provide you with your residence hall options and packing suggestions! Housing assignments are first-come, first-serve--so don't procrastinate! You can log back into your housing application up until April 20 to change your hall and roommate preferences. Students are guaranteed on-campus living if the application and deposit are submitted by April 20. Both steps are needed to secure your spot in the residence halls.
Dec. 1 priority; Feb. 1 deadline
Admitted freshmen who meet minimum scholarship criteria and are accepted by the Feb. 1 application deadline must fill out the separate Admissions scholarship application to apply.

To be considered for financial assistance, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form found at fafsa.gov.
Note: Your financial aid package may not reflect all incoming scholarships. If you haven't applied for scholarships, please refer to the scholarship website to learn more about eligibility, deadlines, and the application process. For questions about scholarships, call the Admissions Office at 715-836-5415.
Regional placement testing is required of all new incoming freshmen and can be taken at any UW System campus. Students must take placement tests before attending orientation. Information is mailed to accepted students in February.
New Student Orientation and registration for freshmen will take place in June. Students who have paid their $100 enrollment deposit will receive detailed information about orientation in late March and will be able to sign up for a date in early April. Before you attend orientation, be sure to send a transcript for any college work in progress or completed so you can be advised appropriately for your coursework. Sign up for one of the required 15 one-day programs happening between June 12 and June 30!

The current reciprocity agreement between Minnesota and Wisconsin enables a Minnesota resident to attend Wisconsin public institutions of higher education at rates approximating tuition prevailing in the Minnesota State University System. To receive this reduced tuition, apply using the Online Tuition Reciprocity Application. If you have questions about reciprocity, contact the Minnesota Office of Higher Education at (800) 657-3866.
After graduation, submit an official high school transcript for a review of your senior grades and certification of graduation. In order to gain college credit for any college coursework taken in high school, send a final transcript from the college/university you took the course(s) through. All transcripts should be sent to the Admissions Office prior to June orientation for best advising. Altering or failing high school or college coursework could result in cancellation of your admission. For a look at how credits will transfer, visit our Transfer Credit Wizard.
Move-in day | September 2
Offering students on-campus jobs is a priority at UW-Eau Claire because studies show that students who work part-time in college often perform better academically and are more likely to stay in school than students who do not work at all.More
