UW-Whitewater students and employees are assigned a unique Net-ID. Your Net-ID functions as your username to access university technology resources.
- Students receive their Net-ID when they apply to the university. The illustration below details student's access to services based on their student status
- Employees receive their Net-ID when they are entered into the HR system. Once a Net-ID is created employees can start using campus services (e.g. email)
The first time you use your Net-ID, you will be prompted to answer security questions and will have to reset your password. Passwords expire every 180 days and you will receive email reminders to reset your password.
- To activate or reset your password, visit http://password.uw.edu
- For more information on multi-factor authentication (MFA) for WINS users, visit the MFA page on the Registrar Office's website.
Student Services by Status
- Students will have access when the application comes in. As long as the student is enrolled in one course, the service will not be removed.
- If the application is denied, the student withdraws before enrolling or never enrolls, the services will be deprovisioned.
- Email is provisioned when a student is admitted. As long as the student has terms active, email will remain active.
- Email will be deprovisioned in February and September each year. This will allow all students to access their 1098T before the email is deprovisioned.
- Notices will be sent prior to turning the service off.
- Email service can be extended for graduates by signing up for Warhawk4Life.
Active Student Services
- Students have access to the services after their first term is activated. A student can tell the term is activated if they are able to enroll in courses for the term.
- If a student has graduated, services will be removed after the last active term is complete and the degree is posted.
- If the student is dismissed or discontinued, the services will be removed after the last active term. This will enable students with incompletes to maintain services while completing their courses.
- Students who have graduated or completed will receive all of the lifetime services listed above.
- Alumni can sign up for Warhawk4Life to maintain their UWW.edu email account.
Need a departmental or generic account created?
Departments and organizations can request a Net-ID for campus services. Examples of departmental/generic accounts include firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Departmental accounts are useful because ownership of the account can easily be transferred, even if the owner leaves the university.
To request a departmental account, please contact the TSC Helpdesk at 262-472-HELP(4357) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
