Creating a New User ID

If you have not previously used this system, you must create a password and use an email address as your ID.

It is easy to get an email account. There are a number of places that allow you to create a free email account: Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft Outlook are just a few.

Signing In

If your User ID (email address) and password don't work, you will see the message: "The email address and password are not registered on our system." Please check the following:

  • Have you changed your email address? If so, you should sign on using the old email address and password. You can change it after you have signed in. If you have multiple email accounts, be sure you are using the correct email address.

  • If you forgot your password, click on "Forgot Your Password". Your password will be emailed to you.

  • Are you sure you registered an email address and password? If not, click on "Register" at the bottom of the column on the left side of the page.

  • Do not register multiple email addresses or submit duplicate applications for the same student. Doing so can result in problems processing your application.

  • Did you complete the verification of your email address? If not,

    • Go to the inbox for your email account.

    • Be sure you are in the most current email from DPI and click the "Confirm Email Address" link in the email to confirm your email address.

    • Once you click the "Confirm Email Address" link in the email, the link will take you to the email verification confirmation page where it notifies you that your email address has been verified.

    • On the email verification confirmation page, you will be instructed to click on a link to return to the online parent application log-in page where you will need to enter your email and password to continue.

  • Please note that it may take 5 minutes to 24 hours for the email to arrive. You should check your spam or junk folders for an email from PrivateSchoolChoice@dpi.wi.gov with a subject of "Verify your School Choice Program Email Address".

  • If you need a new verification email sent you may go to the login page for the online parent application and enter your email and password again under Returning Users and a new verification email will be generated.
