UW-Parkside has received emergency funding from the Federal stimulus and from the generous donation of the UW-Parkside Foundation's Future Focus Fund to assist you with pandemic-related needs. If you have been financially impacted as a result of COVID-19, you can request emergency funding.
We are excited to introduce a new advising tool. The Academic Advisement Report (AAR) is an interactive audit tool that helps you and your advisor see your progress towards graduation.
The AAR allows you to track progress toward graduation by showing all requirements for your degree (e.g., skills, university, general education, diversity, and major/ minor requirements) and whether a requirement is satisfied or not satisfied.
The AAR can be viewed in an interactive online format or as a PDF. We recommend viewing online.
The AAR can be accessed in SOLAR. The AAR does replace DARS.

The Department of Health Services recently announced that some Wisconsin students who are enrolled in a higher learning institution for at least half time and meet criteria, can participate in FoodShare and receive assistance to purchase groceries during the pandemic. The duration of these provisions will be determined by the length of the federal public health emergency. Students interested in signing up for FoodShare should submit an application at Wisconsin’s ACCESS website, where they can also see if they are eligible for other support.

Safety at UW-Parkside is a top priority at UW-Parkside.
Here are some quick tips to stay safe:
The number to call in the event of an emergency:
- For all emergencies on campus please call the UW-Parkside University Police at 262.595.2911, or 262.595.2455.
- Simply calling “911” can significantly delay the response time since “911” calls go to the Kenosha County emergency dispatch services rather than to our University Police.
- Please identify the location of the emergency posters in your classroom/lab/studio:
