Prospective Students

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in UW-Madison! While the advising resources on this site are primarily for current students, there are many ways for you to find out more about UW-Madison.

Here is a list of resources to help you get started, or read more about applying, visiting, and what happens once you’re admitted to UW-Madison. Once you’ve been admitted to UW-Madison, your first official event as a student will be to attend the Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) program. Information on the SOAR agenda and registration can be found here.
