Frequently Asked Questions

Applicants/Students

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 Students

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.

After two semesters of non-enrollment, student ArgoNet accounts are downgraded to limited access MyUWF accounts.


Employees

  • Faculty and staff employees paid by UWF
    UWF-paid employees can activate their account two hours after they have been processed through Payroll.
    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.

  • University affiliates paid by a source other than UWF (e.g., University of Florida, PJC, Capstone, Chartwells)
    Departments preparing for the arrival of a new affiliate may request the creation of an ArgoNet account in advance of the employee's first day of work. The account will then be ready for activation when the employee arrives. Workstation managers or other authorized personnel can initiate the creation of an account via the IT Request Forms app in MyUWF. Select ArgoNet Account Request, then Account Request for NOT Paid by UWF.

    If the account is for a volunteer, Human Resources must confirm that the volunteer/department has completed and submitted a Volunteer Application and Volunteer Worker Agreement.

Instructors

Instructor apps are automatically added to your MyUWF account at the time that you become an "instructor of record" for a course. No additional action is necessary.


Student Employees

Apps designated for student employees are automatically added to your MyUWF account at the time that you become a student employee at the university. No additional action is necessary.

Employee ArgoNet accounts are not created for student staff. Exceptions to this rule can be made if the employee becomes an instructor of record for a credit course, is hired as a permanent employee with benefits, or if the student account is scheduled for deletion in the near future.


Former Employees

If you were employed at the university within the past 36 months, you can log into MyUWF using your ArgoNet username and password. Former employees are limited to accessing tax-related information in MyUWF. Your former employee permissions will expire 16 months after your termination date.

The account recovery tool can help you recover your username and reset the password for your account.
