1. Activate your ePanther ID account.
To activate your account, you'll need your Campus ID (or social security number) and birth date. Once you activate your ePanther ID, you will assign yourself a secure password to access PAWS in the future.
2. Log onto PAWS (paws.uwm.edu).
If you have difficulty connecting to PAWS or setting up your ePanther ID, contact the UWM Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-229-4040. Remember to keep a record of your ePanther ID and password.
3. View your "to do" items in PAWS to see what we need from you.
In addition to checking the status of your application to UWM, the PAWS web site will help you to review and update your address information, monitor the status of your financial aid application and accept your award and register for classes, see your student record, and access financial information as well as many other services once you have been admitted to UWM.
