Activating Your UWSP Account

Activating your UWSP account is a two-step process at UWSP that provides you with access to UWSP systems and services, and helps you prevent lockouts to campus resources.

Step 1: Activate your account as soon as possible to gain access to the UWSP network, important systems, and services.

Step 2: Set up Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)within 30-days of account activation to prevent being locked out of UWSP resources.

Multi-factor authentication is enforced for all UWSP employees. Multi-factor authentication will be enforced for all students, retired faculty, volunteers, and other affiliated accounts starting November 2021.(See Campus Announcements this Fall).
