**If you are having trouble with registration, here are a few troubleshooting tips:

  1. Make sure you are using the correct browser to register: Are you using Chrome or Edge? The registration program might not work with Firefox or Safari. You may also have trouble if you are using a Chromebook.
  2. Restart your browser/clear your cache: You can do this under your browser settings (usually by clicking on the three dots/menu on the upper right-hand side of the browser when you first open it); it could be that the system is remembering a time you'd logged in to view it before and not refreshing.
I've already attended an Admitted Day at UW-Eau Claire. Do I need to attend BGE?

Yes! These are two different programs - Admitted Day is hosted through our Admissions office.

Blugold Experience Days are a crucial part of the orientation experience, as each new student will register for their first semester of classes on these days with a professional academic advisor.

These days also provide opportunities for students and families to explore our beautiful campus, engage more directly with Academic staff and faculty, build deeper relationships with other Blugolds, get some cool UWEC swag, pick up your textbooks ahead of your first semester (and beat the lines!), and essentially check out your new home with a different lens (touring the spaces you'll be attending class, connecting with your roommate in person, attending live sessions, etc.). You can also tour the city you're living in with one of our downtown tour trolleys!

We can't wait to see you here!

Am I able to come on campus another day if I can't make BGE?

Blugold Experience Days are a crucial part of your New Student Orientation Experience. If you are unable to make BGE for any reason, please reach out to us at or 715-836-5053, and we'll be happy to discuss your schedule!
