Four Year Graduation Agreement
150 Bascom Hall, 500 Lincoln Drive
Madison, Wisconsin 53706
New UW-Madison freshmen may be eligible to participate in an optional program consisting of a signed agreement and academic plan to graduate within four years.
The Four Year Graduation Agreement itself is a simple document. The Protocol (described on the website) is more detailed. Mainly, the student has to develop and maintain an academic plan and have regular contact with UW-Madison advisers. To maximize students' success in this program, the Protocol provides a prescribed amount of structure during four, consecutive undergraduate years.
The UW-Madison Four Year Graduation Agreement is designed to formalize a plan for students to graduate within four calendar years from initial enrollment, assuming full time continuous registration. Participation in the Agreement does not guarantee admission to any specific lecture, discussion section or lab, major* or department, nor does it give priority registration to the student. The University agrees to provide the services and remedy described in the Agreement.
*(Please note: for students initiating the agreement, there are approximately two dozen majors which are not included. See web for details.)
