Getting Started

You've been admitted to the University of Wisconsin MBA Consortium. Congratulations! But what's the best way to get started? This guide gives a quick overview of some of the most important topics as you begin, but please contact us with any questions you have.

Review Degree Requirements

You should make sure you understand what's required for you to complete the degree. The Program Overview page gives an outline of what's required.

Planning your Degree

After having an understanding of the degree requirements and program costs, you can plan your degree. Click here for more information on planning your degree.

Activating your Account

When you applied, you received your username and student ID by email. You also would have received instructions for activating your account. Your username is used to access classes, email, library services, and the student information system (CampS). If you have not yet activated your account, click here to activate your account now.

Registering for Classes

After you have a plan, you can register for classes. Click here for more information on registering for classes.

You've registered! Now what?

We're happy that you were able to successfully register! Here is some more information you should be aware of as you begin to take classes.

Begin checking your new email account - It would be good to start checking your email account on a regular basis as official university communications plus messages from classes you're in go to that account. If you have a smartphone, you can configure it to receive email automatically so it's easier to check (Android Instructions | iOS Instructions)

Class access - The UW MBA Consortium uses Canvas for all courses. You can access Canvas at, selecting UW-Eau Claire as your organization when logging in. Two weeks before a class starts, you’ll receive an email at your UW-Eau Claire email account with access instructions. One week before the class officially starts, it will open so you can begin reviewing content and planning out your semester. View a video tour of a Canvas course.

Books/materials - One thing you'll need to do before classes start is order books/materials. It's usually best to review the Class Schedules & Textbooks page for this information. If books/materials have not been assigned for a term yet, you'll see a note on a specific class that says "Required materials have not yet been assigned for this section." We generally add textbooks and materials no later than six weeks before a term starts.
