Enter in your NetID (with OR without the added on the end) and your current password. Then click Logon

Authenticate with Okta (if you require Okta to access your UWL accounts).

  • If you are a current student and/or a faculty or staff member, then authenticate with your Okta Device. 
  • If you are an applicant or a recently admitted student who does not receive the Okta prompt, then please disregard this step and you should be logged in.

Now you should be logged into your WINGS account. 

Are you receiving an error? 

  • If you have received the "incorrect username and/or password" error, or an "unable to sign in" error, then please ensure that you are correctly typing in your NetID and password and try again, or visit our Password Reset Page to recover your password - use the Password Management -> Expired or Forgotten option, and use your student ID number that starts with the number 9 (or 8 if a graduate student, or if faculty, use the 000.. number - if your faculty ID is eight digits long with two zeros at the beginning, add another zero at the beginning to make it nine digits).
