One key to success as a distance learning student is to stay abreast of important financial and academic deadlines. On the UW-Platteville distance education home page, we provide two tools to help students track deadlines: the Calendar and RSS Feeds.

If you have a PDA or another digital tool that allows you to track dates by inputting the information, you may refer to the Calendar to record important dates for the Spring and Summer 2007 semesters. If, however, you do not have a personal digital tool and/or prefer information to be presented on a more "need-to-know" basis, you may subscribe to the RSS Feed instead. With this subscription, you may review upcoming deadlines using a RSS reader. (We recommend the simple-to-use Google Reader.)

The UW-Platteville’s Financial Aid Office has created an Online Calendar for those who are interested in applying for financial aid.

What if one does have a PDA or "Outlook" they use to help with reminders, is it possible to upload the UW Plateville Calendar onto the PDA/Outlook calendar?

Currently there is not a way to upload the UWP calendar to your PDA, since it doesn't have an export feature.

We can, however post a csv comma delimited file for you to import into your PDA with the upcoming dates for Summer 2007. These are the deadline dates for registration and payments. If you would like to try downloading the file, the URL is

Let us know how it works!
