Before Starting the Application Process

  • Confirm your offer of admission.
  • Make sure you have extended your UWin Account.  For instructions, click here at Extending UWin Account ( (Be sure to type in '', not just 'uwinid'.)

  • New UWiniDs are uploaded into the University system in the early morning, so you may need to wait 24 hours, or until the next day, to go back into the application.

  • Have your credit card ready nearby to avoid being timed out during the application process. Your credit card will be used to pay a residence deposit. The residence application does not accept debit card payment.

  • Even if you have a credit on your student account, you have to pay a residence deposit of $475 when applying. You can use the credit on your account to pay other university fees.
