Academic Support

Remote Learning

Tips to help you get connected and be successful while learning remotely:

Academic Advising and Career Services

  • Students are able to meet with their academic and career advisors remotely: over the phone, or on a computer/phone as either a voice or video call.
  • Find out how to meet and contact your academic advisor.
  • Students should use Starfish or contact their advising office to set up an appointment or email with questions.


If you have a disability-related accommodation, please be in touch with your instructors to discuss any changes for your course. You can also reach out to your Access Consultant at the McBurney Disability Resource Center if you have questions.

Respect Statement

COVID-19 is not specific to an ethnicity or race—disease does not discriminate. Racist behaviors or stereotyping are not tolerated at UW–Madison. If you experience harassment or discrimination, students are encouraged to file a bias incident report. Employees may file a complaint with the Office of Compliance.
