Username vs. Email

Some logins require your username, and some require your full email address. Your username is the prefix to your email without the Canvas uses your username, and UW-Green Bay uses your full email. You will use the same password for all logins.




Creating Your UW-Green Bay Password

  1. Go to
  2. Enter your UW-Green Bay email address provided by Program Coordinator in your orientation email. If you did not get an email, please contact
  3. Choose "I forgot my password" even though you don't have a password yet. The process for creating and resetting are the same.
  4. Choose your method of verification.
  5. Set up your new password, using this criteria:
    • Must be a minimum of 14 characters and not exceed 32 characters
    • Must be a mix of upper case, lower case, numbers and special characters
    • Must be changed every 180 days
    • Should not contain any personally identifiable information, such as user's first or last name

If you are having issues setting up your password, please contact the IT Help Desk at 920-465-2309. They will ask a few questions to confirm your identity, and then they should be able to help you create a password. If you are still having issues, please contact
