Pioneer Portal – A customizable and easy way to access all our online resources, like your email and Canvas. You will be able to customize applications, home page layout, and web shortcuts. When you open an internet window on any campus computer, it will open the Pioneer Portal.

PioneerLink – Use this system to learn about and get involved with student organizations and campus events.

KnowledgeBase – Find helpful articles and walkthroughs for technology-related questions and processes. Search Pioneer Portal and select the KnowledgeBase tab.

Campus email – UW-Platteville uses Office 365 for email, calendar, and other integrated apps. Visit to learn how to access your UW-Platteville email.

Learning to monitor your email carefully is one of the best ways to stay on top of things.

SharePoint – The internal, password-protected website for the campus community, also called Campus Hub. Use SharePoint to find the most up-to-date information about campus resources and departments.

Duo – The tool we use for two-factor authentication, which pairs something you know (your password) with something you have (your cell phone). Everyone in the university community are potential targets of phishing attempts, and having this extra layer of security is important to keeping everyone’s information safe. ITS strongly recommends enrolling a second device in the event your primary device is not available. You may also generate a list of one-time-use backup codes for those times when your phone dies or you forget it somewhere.

PASS – UW-Platteville uses the Pioneer Administrative Software System for many different student and staff functions, including registration, payments, financial aid review, administrative purposes, updating and maintaining student records, and more.

Canvas – The online course management system used for classes or supplemental training. Professors can post readings or assignments in Canvas, you can submit assignments or take quizzes, and your professors can post your grades and provide feedback on assignments. An on-campus job might have you enroll in a training environment within Canvas.

Navigate Student – An online student success tool that helps students stay organized and engaged on campus. Students can use Navigate to schedule appointments with tutors and advisors, access information about campus resources, stay up to date on important events and deadlines, and connect with other students in your classes. Students can download the Navigate Student app on their smartphones or access Navigate Student from the Pioneer Portal.

Handshake – Students can use Handshake to search for on- and off-campus employment opportunities, schedule appointments with career specialists in our Career and Professional Development Office, and more.

Financial Aid and Scholarship Office, Cashier’s Office

The Financial Aid and Scholarship Office assists students in financing their educational expenses through state, federal, and institutional programs. When administering these programs, our dedicated staff works with all prospective and current students, families, and members of the campus community.

Tuition and fees can be paid with cash or check at the Cashier’s Office. Credit or debit payments can be made online through PASS. The Cashier’s Office also processes refunds, scholarships, and online payments. Students may grant a third party (for example, a parent) access to certain features within PASS.


Financial aid consists of grants, loans, student employment, and scholarships. These resources may assist you with meeting your educational expenses at UW-Platteville. Visit our website under “Types of Aid” for additional information and eligibility requirements.


You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid to be considered for grants, federal loans, and employment (work-study). The application is available online at UW-Platteville Baraboo Sauk County’s FAFSA school code is is 003921. You must be admitted to the university before your aid application can be processed.

The aid you receive will depend on your eligibility as determined through the FAFSA, state and federal regulations, and the availability of funds for specific programs with limited funding. Visit the Financial Aid and Scholarships website for more information about completing the FAFSA.


Grants, loans, and scholarships in PASS (where UW-Platteville has awarded them or has received the funding for the scholarship if from an outside source) are applied directly to a student’s UW-Platteville account at the beginning of each term. Once students complete all requirements, the aid will be released. Note that there are additional application steps for loans. You will receive information on these if a loan award is accepted. If your aid for the semester exceeds your charges, you will receive a refund check, or the refund may be directly credited to your bank account. We recommend you arrange for the direct deposit of refunds with the Cashier’s Office.


• Complete a new FAFSA every academic year to receive aid for that year. It does not roll over.

• Dropping a class or withdrawing from all classes may affect your aid, which means you may owe funds back to UW-Platteville.

• In order to continue receiving aid, you must maintain satisfactory academic progress.

• At the start of each semester, a review is conducted to determine the student’s enrollment status compared to the level at which financial aid was awarded. If different, aid may have to be adjusted at that time.

• Tuition bills are generated approximately one month before the start of the semester by the Cashier’s Office. An email notification is sent to the student when their bill is available to view in PASS. Please understand that when the initial bill is sent out, there has not been any aid deducted from the bill; the disbursement happens on the first day of classes for the semester.

Confidential, short-term counseling is provided to assist students with personal, social, developmental, academic, or career concerns related to their education progress, personal growth, and general well-being. There is a part-time counselor on the Baraboo Sauk County campus. While students can do tele-counseling, they can also do in-person counseling as well.

Textbook Center

The textbook rental program is a unique and important way that we make a degree affordable to you. The Textbook Center provides books and other formats of course materials that you are required to have for your classes. Students pay a semester rental fee for the use of textbooks. The semester fee is the same whether you require four or 24 books. If you are a part-time student, or attending a shorter session, the fee is prorated per course credit.


• Electronically sign the Textbook Rental Agreement in your PASS account, which is available beginning early August for fall semester and early January for spring semester.

• Print or screenshot your textbook list.

• Bring your textbook list and Campus Card to the Textbook Center, located in T.N. Savides Library, during pickup hours.


• Returning books works just the opposite. To avoid late fees or being charged for a book, materials must be returned by the last day of the semester. To avoid additional charges your textbooks must be returned in good condition.

• The Textbook Center will use your campus email to communicate with you. Please make sure to check for email notices weekly before and after the semester begins or ends. This is when notices go out about unreturned books or changes in our procedures.

The password you set up for your UW-Platteville account is good for 180 days before you will be asked to update it. You will receive three plain text email reminders prior to the password expiring.

To keep your physical devices safe on campus, ITS recommends using locks for your laptop and never leave your belongings unattended. In case your devices are stolen, make sure you have information like the make, model, serial number, and MAC address recorded somewhere safe. We recommend installing antivirus software on your devices.
