Sponsored ePantherACCOUNTs must be re-validated by the sponsor at least annually. Failure to re-validate a Sponsored ePantherACOUNT will result in the loss of access and possible loss of data contained in services accessed using the account. Unless otherwise arranged by the sponsor with the IAM Team, sponsored ePantherACCOUNTs will be re-validated at the end of each fall semester.
ProcedureThe procedure used to request a Sponsored ePantherACCOUNT can vary depending on the services that the individual needs to access. The sponsor must have the following information before requesting a sponsored account:
- Legal name of the individual
- Date of birth of the individual
- Indication if the individual was a former student or employee of UWM
- Previous name if the individual was a former student or employee of UWM
Requests for a Sponsored ePantherACCOUNT should start with the sponsor requesting the account with the UWM Help Desk using the on-line request form at GetTechHelp.uwm.edu.
A representative from the IAM Technical Team will contact the sponsor. Depending on the nature of the request, the sponsor may be asked to use the Emergency Employee Add Form to complete the request.
