Adult Career and Special Student Services (ACSSS) is your gateway to the vast resources of UW-Madison. We offer career counseling for local adults including UW-Madison employees. Our office serves as the admitting, advising, and dean’s office for University Special students. Additionally, ACSSS acts as a launching pad for returning adult students and provides them with support, guidance, and resources to successfully navigate their way back to school.
