Getting Started with Wolverine Access

Anyone can search, browse, and click on links in New Wolverine Access. However, only those with uniqnames can log in to save or view their favorites.

For users with friend accounts (e.g. parents): You can still access the tools or systems you need, e.g. paying student bills. You will be asked to log in with your friend account after you click your desired link. Full support for friend accounts is coming soon. 

First Time Logging In

The first time you log in, you may be asked if you’d like to connect to Canvas. If you connect to Canvas, you will see your active Canvas courses displayed on your home page. This is optional, and you can always connect or disconnect Canvas later.

Customize your Home Page

Wolverine Access will automatically detect your role (student, faculty, staff) and display links that are relevant for you. You can customize your home page by adding favorites and bookmarks, adding your Canvas courses, or by reordering the sections on your home page
