The purpose of this page is to assist in the communication of New Wolverine Access.

Wolverine Access (WA) is getting an upgrade! The new Wolverine Access is currently available for view and use. This version of Wolverine Access will become the default on September 27, 2020. This change will impact everyone who uses Wolverine Access at the university.

What will change?

The same options and services will still be available after the upgrade. Processes and procedures will remain the same.

The web address is not changing.

The new Wolverine Access offers extensive benefits including:

  • One-click access to the U-M tools and resources individuals use the most
  • Robust search capabilities within the U-M digital universe
  • A customizable individual experience, behind a secure login
  • A mobile-friendly, responsive design that is easy to use on all devices.

In preparation for the change, we have advised you to review communications, training documents, and website references to ensure they reflect the correct information in relation to the upgrade. We recommend updating your materials as soon as you can. From now until September 26, to see the new version of WA simply use, but starting September 27, the new WA will be the default when using the web address.

The "classic" WA tabs are still available using the header on the top of the new Wolverine Access gateway. When you click on the links in that banner, the links that display are the exact links that are available under that tab in the classic WA. Some display the names of the links a bit differently. For example, in classic WA, the link would say M-Pathways Student Administration. In new Wolverine Access, the link has Student Administration in bold and M-Pathways a bit smaller under that.
