A step-by-step description showing the process behind when a student is issued their wiscmail account.
  1. Student applies to Graduate School and submits an application for Residency decision to RO.
  2. Student is admitted to Graduate School (ADMT code in SIS).
  3. Student is matriculated to Graduate School (MATR code in SIS) – this is an automated process most of the year.  For grad students that start in the fall, we turn on automatriculation in mid to late June. We do not manually matriculate students before that for fall students.  We only do manual matriculation in late august for new fall grad students.
  4. The Registrar’s Office then term activates a matriculated student. This is an automated process that happens overnight once a MATR code has been assigned to a student.
  5. Once term activated the student will have access to wiscmail to set it up.  DoIT owns the wiscmail issuance process.

New Grad Students are able to request a wiscmail account when they have an active residency decision (step 1), be admitted (step 2), matriculated (step 3), and term activated (step 4).  Learn more about how to set up your wiscmail account here.

The Graduate School admits for all graduate programs listed in Guide: https://guide.wisc.edu/graduate/ with the exception of Business programs, which the School of Business admits.
