Account Activation for New Applicants

STEP 1: Refer to your "UW-Parkside Account Activation" email, sent from, for your Parkside Username and Activation Pin.

  • This was sent one business day after you applied to the university to the email address you provided in your application.
  • Check your junk or spam folder if you are having trouble finding the email.
  • If you didn't provide a valid e-mail address, your activation information was sent by mail.   

STEP 2: Set up your account using the your activation pin, birth year, and birth month as your initial password: PIN (XXXX) + Birth Year (XX) + Birth Month (XX).  See the example below:

  • EXAMPLE:  PIN:1234 and Date of Birth: 01/24/95
  • INITIAL PASSWORD: PIN (1234) + Birth Year (95) + Birth Month (01) = 12349501
