Business Services Resource - Incorrect Email in SFS Profile

This article summarizes how to resolve the issue that some former UW System students will have when they become employees within the UW System where their student email carries over to their employee position in the Shared Financial System (SFS).

This can result in important notifications not being sent to or received by the correct employee email address. For example, this UWL employee's email reflected their student email address from UW-Stevens Point in the SFS User Request Authorization Form:
