Week 5 Mandatory Major Declaration Communications – Spring 2022

Dear Campus Colleagues,

We are writing to share that the following email has just been sent to 393 continuing L&S undergraduate students who will have 86 plus degree credits and who have not yet declared a major. This email communication was not sent to L&S undergraduate students who are first-year students or first-semester transfer students who have 86 plus degree credits. These students will not be able to enroll for courses in future terms until they declare a major or speak with their assigned advisor about options if they are unable to declare at this time.

L&S Student Academic Affairs has established a Box folder called L&S Student Communications and Audits, which will contain the student communication and an Excel file, searchable by advisor name, listing the names and e-mail addresses of the students who received this message. This data is provided to enable Academic Advisors to communicate with the affected students.

By requesting access to this Box folder, you affirm that:

1)  A majority of your advisees are L&S students that you advise or L&S students in your major

2)  Your students identify you as a primary Academic Advisor in the campus Student Information System (SIS)

3)  You currently have access to student data in SIS and follow the Guidelines for Faculty & Staff:

Note the importance of e-mailing groups of students by Bcc

To request access to this Box folder, please e-mail a request from your wisc.edu account, include your NetID, and indicate your department/unit, to the L&S Academic Deans’ Services (ADS) office:
