All students are given a campus network account which is used to access campus technology resources. Username and password information is provided in the acceptance letter. The same username and password is used to access SIS, Canvas, Outlook (email) and other technology.

What is my username?

Usernames consist of the first four characters of your last name, your first name initial, middle name initial, and the two-digit day of your birth date. For example, Mary Kay Jones’s birthday is May 4th. Her username would be jonemk04. (There are occasional exceptions to this syntax. Contact the IT Service Desk for assistance at or 920-465-2309).

What is my password?

When you are admitted the University generates a default password to help you get logged in for the first couple of times. Once you have had a chance to log in, we recommend setting up the self-service password tool. More information can be seen here. You will reset your password from the default, as well as at least every 180 days as passwords will expire.

Your default password is the capitalized first letter of your last name, followed by the pound sign and phx (#phx), and then your 9-digit Campus Identification number.

What if I can’t remember my password?

If you no longer remember your password, or your password has expired, you may be able to reset it yourself if you set up the self-service password tool. If you have not done that, you must contact the IT Service Desk during business hours for help accessing your account. They may be reached at 920-465-2309.

SIS / Canvas

Students rely HEAVILY on the Student Information System (SIS) to register for and add or drop classes, view class schedules, grades and degree progress reports, print transcripts, and access other academic and financial information including making payments and checking on financial aid status.

Canvas is the Digital Learning Environment used for discussions, readings and quizzes, supporting the in-class experience. Canvas is also used to access online courses.
