UW Digital ID - Customer - Credentialing Process

UW System sunsets Personal Digital Certificates (UW Digital ID) service for all system campuses and affiliates effective June 30, 2022. As of March 01, 2022, no new requests for individual Personal Digital Certificates (UW Digital ID) will be issued.

This document will summarize the steps required to be credentialed / ID verified for your digital certificate request.

When you submit a request for a UW Digital ID personal digital certificate, you will be required to get identity proofed with a Local Registration Authority (LRA), in a process known as credentialing. This provides assurance that an assigned UW Digital ID belongs to the appropriate person and usage of that UW Digital ID proves assurance of your identity to individuals and to some systems, like HRS or SFS.

A Local Registration Authority (LRA) will credential you for most actions an administrator needs to take on a given UW Digital ID request (e.g. issuing a UW Digital ID). During the COVID19 Social Distancing period please contact the DoIT Help Desk to request a remote credentialing session.

You must bring two (2) forms of identification, one from each category below, to be properly credentialed.

  • UW Affiliation: UW ID Card, UW Health Card, HR Verification Form, Notary Public Form
    • Note During COVID-19: An appointment letter may be used in lieu of a WisCard
  • Government-issued ID: State-issued Photo ID, US Military Card, Passport

If you have any issues that prevent you from physically meeting with your LRA (such as being indefinitely offsite), please contact UW Digital ID Administration for assistance at uwdigitalid@doit.wisc.edu
