When and How to get an ePantherACCOUNT
Applicants are automatically given an ePantherACCOUNT when they apply for admission. An applicant receives a letter in the mail with instructions to activate their new ePantherACCOUNT and establish their secure password, giving them access to certain selected UWM services.
Students are automatically given access to additional UWM services prior to the start of the registration period for the first term for which they are eligible to enroll. A new student receives a letter in the mail with instructions to activate their new ePantherACCOUNT and establish their secure password, if not already activated as an applicant.
Employees (Faculty and Staff)
Employees are automatically given an ePantherACCOUNT after their appointment is entered into the Human Resources system. Employees are informed of the need to activate their ePantherACCOUNT by the hiring department. The employee is required to activate his/her own ePantherACCOUNT and establish a secure password. If all paperwork has not been completed, the new employee will not be able to activate his/her ePantherACCOUNT. Employees with an activated ePantherACCOUNT are given access to a wide range of services to allow them to carry out academic activities and conduct business while at UWM.
Other UWM Affiliated Individuals
Other affiliates of UWM, such as visiting scholars, are given an ePantherACCOUNT when their sponsoring department requests a sponsored ePantherACCOUNT. When the sponsored account is set up, the sponsoring department is notified that the sponsored account is ready for activation. The sponsoring department notifies the affiliate that they may activate the new account and establish his/her secure password. Affiliates with a sponsored ePantherACCOUNT are given access to a varied list of services depending on the nature of the sponsorship.
