Academic Resources

Academic Support

The student Work Zone offers academic support services, career exploration and health and wellness services to UW-Fond du Lac students.

The mission of the UW-Fond du Lac Library is to support the curriculum of this institution. There are approximately 40,000 volumes in our collection. Our students also have access to the volumes in any of the other UW System libraries through Universal Borrowing.

The Online Writing Lab (OWL) is a writing resource for UW Colleges students. Students can email drafts of their writing to receive feedback from the OWL director or student writing tutors.

The OWL website offers tips for essay writers, contains information about common grammar/ punctuation errors, and presents Modern Language Association (MLA) and American Psychological Association (APA) documentation guidelines.

Advising

Academic advising is a very important part of your college experience. UW-Fond du Lac advisors are available to assist you in developing educational plans that are compatible with your life goals. The ultimate responsibility for making decisions about your educational plans rests directly with you, but your academic advisor is here to help!
