If you're a new freshman, you will need to sign up for Placement Testing and Orientation prior to the start of your first semester.  Students are assigned to Academic Advisors who are available to assist with course selection, degree planning, transfer questions and more. During your time at Waukesha you should be meeting with your Advisor regularly to ensure requirements are met. Students admitted to the TRiO Program work specifically with their program advisors.
