Start Planning What You Will Study

Once you know where you are going to go to college, you can start getting ready for your new life on campus. Take your placement tests, start planning what you’ll study, decide where you’ll live, and discover where you can find the people and support you’ll need to feel at home in your new home.

Take Your Placement Tests

If you’re going to be a freshman or first-year college student, your University of Wisconsin may require you take a placement test before you arrive on campus to determine which math, English, and world language courses you can take.

15 to Finish

While you’re getting a jump on things, it’s a good time to start planning out how you will approach your courses in college too. If you want to get your bachelor’s degree in four years, or your associate degree in two, you’ll need to average 15 credits per semester (or 30 credits per year) to graduate on time. That’s good to know early, so you can start strong and plan how to keep on track.
