ArgoNet accounts provide access to UWF online services including MyUWF, email, eLearning, eDesktop virtual lab, computer labs, wireless, and much more. All current UWF students, faculty, and staff receive an ArgoNet username and password.
After your application has been processed, you will receive a letter from the university containing your UWF ID. At that time, you can activate your account.
Applicants have access to a limited set of apps in MyUWF. If you become a UWF student, you will be eligible for an upgrade to an ArgoNet account with full student privileges.
Former student access is limited to personal student records. If you've used MyUWF in the past, your previous account should still be active. Former students who have not used MyUWF can activate their account at any time.

ArgoNet accounts are available for UWF-paid employees one business day after the employee is processed through Payroll. When your employee account is ready, a notification will appear on your MyUWF home page and an Activate button will be available in the My Account app.
After you activate your employee account, your employee email address (@uwf.edu) will become your official email address and all university communication will be sent to that email address.
Any new employee that is paid by UWF must be entered into the payroll system by Human Resources before an ArgoNet account will be generated. Human Resources must receive all essential documents and a completed background screening prior to entering the employee into the payroll system. If you have questions or need additional clarification, please contact the Office of Human Resources at (850) 474-2694.
