WisCEL course applications will be reviewed and approved based on the categories of: Space and capacity usage, technology integration, undergraduate learning, and instructional design and philosophy.
Renewing WisCEL courses receive first priority and scheduling preference, followed by new course applications, which receive approval on a first-come, first-serve basis and schedule availability.
We encourage all instructors to submit early applications to ensure timely consideration of their request.
You will be notified of your course acceptance by email in late December, July or November.
Late applications are accepted based on availability and are reviewed monthly on a first-come-first-served basis.
WisCEL course applications are due approximately seven months prior to the start of the semester so that courses can be approved and entered into the UW-Madison timetable with the correct class period, enrollment capacity and classroom assignment.
Applications are due annually as follows:
- Fall semester applications – December 1
- Spring semester applications – July 1
