Next Steps After Your Admission

  • Set up your ePantherID. Use your ePantherID to login to all UWM systems. Use your Campus ID (991-xx-xxxx) from your official admission letter to activate your ePantherID
  • Set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). MFA is a dual-authentication system required to keep your data secure. Set up MFA and read the information under FAQ > International Students. Bring the device with MFA with you to the U.S. to prevent problems logging in later. 
  • Access your UWM email. All important information from UWM will be sent to your UWM email address. Check it frequently. Go to the UWM main website > For Students > Office 365. Log in with your ePantherID@uwm.edu and password, and open Outlook.
  • Access your PAWS account. You’ll use your PAWS account to enroll in classes, update your personal information, and view and pay your tuition. Go to the UWM main website > For Students > PAWS. Log in with your ePantherID and password.
