How to Use the UWest Portal

The UWest Portal is a web interface that allows students direct access to many of their academic and financial records and functions, such as grades, schedule, and financial aid awards. The Portal also provides faculty access to class rosters and student information, and allows faculty to post grades and attendance.

Student Access: User Name and Password

To use the Portal you will first need to set up your Portal account if you did not do so during New Student Orientation.

Though the UWest webpage, click on Portal, then Student Portal Homepage, and finally click on Create a new account.

User Name = Firstname.Lastname (you must enter the “dot” between your first and last name)

For your user name, enter your first and last names exactly as they appear on your ID card and separated by a dot. If your name is incorrectly printed on your ID card, please notify the Registrar right away as this means your name is recorded incorrectly in the University’s database.

If you have a hyphen or space in your name, be sure to type your name with the hyphen or space in place.

For example:

Student Name
Marilyn Monroe
Shi Feng Cho
Jonathan Rhys-Davis
User Name
Shi Feng.Cho

Select a password that you can remember, answer the security questions, and you are ready to go!

Guests & Prospective Students

Guests and prospective students may access the current schedule of classes on the UWest website by clicking on Portal then Schedule of Classes.

When searching the schedule of classes, it helps to narrow your search by term, leaving all other search options as is. The list of courses will appear in groups of five or more. Remember to hit Next Page to see more classes.
