Other Requirements

  • Unique e-mail account
    Each user account must have a unique e-mail address.  Members of the same family cannot use the same e-mail address.  The e-mail must be accessible both for activating your Wisconsin User ID account with Self-Registration and for running Account Recovery if you forget your User ID or Password.
  • Prior authorization
    By acquiring an account (user ID and password), you will have accomplished the first of two steps in order to access some of our secured sites.  The second step is receiving authorization or permission to access those particular sites and having that authorization recorded on your account.  You must contact the application owner (e.g., sponsoring Agency or Program) to request access prior to logging in to the application with your Wisconsin User ID and Password.  Some sites will allow you to perform this second step in a kind of "self-electing" or "opt-in" process. However, the administrators responsible for most of these sites will need to be contacted and you will need to provide your name and email address to them.  If you meet the requirements for using those sites, the administrator will find your account using the name and email address you provided and record the authorization on your account.  Only when this authorization step is completed will your account be granted access to a secured web application.


  • The applications documented here create many of the pages you see. They are dynamic pages that are customized for you at the time you request them.  Many Web browsers store pages that you have already visited in case you request those pages again by using the Forward or Back button.  You should not use the browser's Forward and Back buttons to navigate.  Instead, you should use the links provided within the application to navigate.
