PAWS Login Information

Students create a PAWS account for important information about their application and enrollment at UWM. On PAWS, there’s a To Do List, which includes steps to get admitted and enrolled and any items the Financial Aid Office may have requested after receiving FAFSA results. Students can access their account at and check it often for updates!

Log into PAWS

Is your student new to PAWS? Students must first activate their ePanther ID and create a password. Students use this login for PAWS, their UWM email (assigned just before New Student Orientation) and all other online UWM resources.
