Requesting Access to Western Online for External Users

Individuals who are not on contract may gain access to WIU systems if someone in their college is willing to serve as a sponsor.  Once the sponsor completes the WIUP Authorized Client Request Form uTech will review the case information and begin the process of creating user credentials.  The sponsor will receive an email with the user's account information (wiu id, ecom username, email) and instructions on how to activate it. The sponsor will then share that information with the user. Additionally, the sponsor will be notified when authorizations are about to expire.
