***Mandatory Requirement***

When you register for classes or make changes to your registration using your online Panther Access to Web Services (PAWS) account, you are making a financial commitment to UWM. All students are required to sign the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Educational Services Credit Agreement before registering for classes. The agreement is available from the Finances section of your PAWS Student Center (Home Page) and can be signed electronically. If you have signed a paper copy of the agreement previously, you will also need to sign the electronic version before you will be allowed to register for classes. You will only need to sign the electronic version of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Educational Services Credit Agreement once unless the terms of the agreement change.
