Welcome to the University of West Florida! As a new employee, you will receive a series of "IT Assist" emails with information to help you get started with UWF's technology resources. Should you have any problems with UWF technology, please contact the ITS Help Desk for assistance (850-474-2075). Additional information is available from "Technology Self-Help Resources" in MyUWF.
As a new employee, the first order of business is to set up all necessary accounts. There are four basic accounts at UWF; you may need all of them or just one:
Your ArgoNet account allows you to access the vast majority of services at UWF including email and MyUWF. To activate your ArgoNet account, go to the MyUWF login page at http://my.uwf.edu. Click the Activate your account - New to UWF in the Home Items list and follow the on-screen instructions.
Banner is the information system used to manage Finance, Human Resources/Payroll, and Student Services/Information. All employees use Banner for tasks such as submitting time and leave reports; however, some positions require more extensive use of Banner, which requires a Banner account. Ask your supervisor if your position requires a Banner account. To request a Banner account, you must complete Banner Basic Training.
A CICS account provides access to UWF’s student information system. Ask your supervisor if you need a CICS account; if you do, fill out an Employee CICS Security Authorization Form in MyUWF and submit it to your workstation manager.
eLearning is UWF's online course management system that allows instructors to offer courses via the Internet and to enhance traditional classes with online content. Request an eLearning account from eLearning Administration in MyUWF.
