What's jwuLink?

  • It's a web portal that takes our various applications (e.g. GPS, ulearn, Involvement Network, on-campus housing system, etc.) and makes them accessible via one secure login. It also provides news and quick links to further resources. Take the Highlights Tour.

Who has access to jwuLink?

  1. Active students

  2. Inactive students (only those who became inactive May 2011 and after)

  • Emails are sent to the personal address on the student's record - it may or may not be accurate & sometimes this info has not been provided. Students do not need to wait to receive the email to complete the setup steps.

When can new students & faculty access the new user site?

  • When a new record is being created, it takes about 24-72 hours for all account creation processes to finish.

  • Records must exist first in BOTH Banner and Active Directory (the system where email accounts are created).

  • Student records are created in Banner when the reservation fee has been satisfied.

What happens when students become inactive in Banner?

  • They have a 90 day grace period with full access to Wildcat Email (exceptions: academic dismissals, academic suspensions, and judicial withdrawals).

  • Their view in jwuLink changes immediately to show condensed content (they no longer get the full experience but can access key records).

What happens when students become graduated in Banner?

  • They maintain full access to Wildcat Email - they have "email for life."

  • Their view in jwuLink changes immediately to show a new alumni page - they maintain access to the Jobs & Internships page + the Athletics page).

Note: Wildcat Email for life began for students graduating Nov 2013 and after.
