Email address types:

    This will be the only address that shows up in the campus directory.
  • Home: You can set the Home email address to anything you would like.
    It can be set as preferred if you do not have a wisc.edu address (e.g. an applicant). If you acquire a wisc.edu account, that address will automatically be set to preferred.
  • Other: Intended for use by applicants only. You can set the Other email address to anything you would like.

Diploma mailing:

Diplomas will be mailed to your Home address unless a Diploma address has been added.
International students are required to add a Diploma address for diploma mailing.

Tips for diploma addresses:

  • If you don't reside in this address, enter the recipient's name as part of the address (e.g. "C/O Bucky Badger").
  • Try not to exceed 35 characters per line or 70 characters overall. Use abbreviations when possible to prevent the address from being too long.
  • Use Address lines 1 and 2, refrain from using lines 3 and 4 if possible (not applicable to all addresses).
  • International addresses- diploma mailings will not be trackable and once shipped, can take up to 60 days to arrive.
    If you anticipate needing your diploma more urgently, we encourage you to enter a domestic address of a friend or acquaintance in the US who can then forward you the diploma using an expedited, trackable service of your choosing. For this option, please enter the recipient's name as part of the address (e.g. "C/O Bucky Badger").
