Step 1: Activate your NetID
After being admitted, your first step is activating your UWO NetID and choosing a password. Once you activate your UWO NetID you will be able to access many of the online services that you will use during your time as a student.
Your UWO Student ID Number and email address, both of which you will use to activate your account, is noted in your acceptance email. Your NetID is the first portion (everything before the @) of your UW Oshkosh Titan email address.
If you forget your password or ever have any issues logging in to a UWO platform, please contact our IT Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-424-3020.

The UWO Net ID is typically formulated using the following information.
- First 8 letters of last name, or your entire last name if less than 8 letters.

For example: Mary Johnson, with a student ID number of 0999999 would be johnsonma99. Mary’s email address would be email@example.com.

Canvas is a digital learning platform that instructors utilize as a course tool. This tool allows instructors to communicate with the class, assign projects, give feedback, post grades, etc. Students can utilize Canvas to communication with their instructor, turn in course work, connect with their classmates, and even collaborate on projects. Most instructors do not add students to their Canvas class until the first week of class.
