Weekend of Welcome

Weekend of Welcome

Welcome to UW-Superior! 

We are excited you have selected UW-Superior as your institution of higher learning and look forward to meeting you when you arrive on campus.

Our WoW programs are designed for all new students (freshmen, transfers and commuters).  WoW includes a variety of events and activities to welcome and assist you with your transition to UWS. 

During WoW you will have a chance to meet tons of other new students.  In addition, you will also meet our Peer Leaders.  Peer Leaders are current students who are available throughout WoW to assist you with navigating the campus and/or the WoW schedule, as well as answer any questions you may have about campus or WoW.

FRESHMAN FEE NOTICE: All new freshmen students coming in with 21 or fewer post high school credits will be assessed a $150 orientation fee.  This fee will be charged directly through your student bill and is non-refundable regardless of attendance and participation in orientation programming. 

TRANSFER FEE NOTICE: All new transfer students coming in with 22 or more post high school credits will be assessed a $125 orientation fee.  This fee will be charged directly through your student bill and is non-refundable regardless of attendance and participation in orientation programming.
