Choose your First-Year Interest Group
Learning in a FIG is a great addition to your UW–Madison education!
Please complete this form to let us know your top choice for a Spring 2021 FIG.
This holds a place in that FIG until you are able to enroll; only one FIG per student can be reserved. (Exception: You can use this form to add your name to a FIG's waitlist.)
You will receive an automatic email reminding you of your chosen FIG after you submit this form. The next step is for the FIGs staff to set up the campus enrollment system to permit you to enroll in these classes. You will receive a second email when that has been completed.
Your actual enrollment in these classes in Course Search & Enroll will take place on or after your UW enrollment appointment day, just like other classes.
