Question Answer
How do I create an account?
  1. Under Personal Information, click "Grant Access to Others."
  2. Read privacy information and click "I agree to these conditions."
  3. Click "Create Account."
  4. Enter a name in "This Account Is For."
  5. Create a password.
  6. Choose what information this new account may access by selecting "Give Access" or "Deny Access" in the drop-down menu for all items. Click "Save."
    • A message will appear confirming that the account has been set up.
    • To add another account, click "Create Account" and follow the same process.
How does the person I created the account for receive their login information? Once you have created an additional account, two e-mails will be sent to your UWM email account with the account ID and password. It is your responsibility to pass on this information to the account holder. You will receive two new e-mails each time an account is created or updated.
What information can be accessed through a designate account? When you create an additional account, you have the ability to choose what information the account holder can view. Access may be granted as follows:
  • To Do Lists (provides items that applicants or students need to complete for a specific department on campus. For example, submitting a high school transcript to Admissions.)
  • Financials Make a Payment (includes viewing Financial Aid as well as making a payment for tuition.)
  • View Grades (includes viewing grades for current as well as previous semesters at UWM.)


Note: This access does not give anyone permission to call the University and ask questions regarding your account.
Who do I give access to? Whether or not you give access to others is entirely up to you and is not recommended or required by UWM. If you do grant access, do so carefully and only for important reasons. Regardless, you should only give access to people you trust.
How many accounts can I create? Each student may have a maximum of three additional accounts at any time.
How can I delete an account? Once an account is created, it can't be deleted. However, access can be denied or the password can be changed, thereby preventing that account from accessing your information in the future.
  1. Under Personal Information, click "Grant Access to Others."
  2. View your current accounts.
  3. Select the account you would like to remove.
    • You may either deny access to all areas for the account or change the password for the individual (see "How can I replace one of my old accounts with a new account?")
  4. Click "Save."
