* Consent to Receive Electronic W-2s

The Office of Accounting/Payroll will be issuing W-2s for 2019 no later than January 31, 2020. You may choose 1 of 2 options to receive your W-2:

• Electronic W-2 – If you provide your consent, you will be able to view/print in Self-Service as soon as they are ready. Notification will be sent through Ace Notes.

• Paper W-2 – If you prefer, you can continue to receive your W-2 in the mail.

An electronic W-2 will give you earlier access than a mailed copy. It is IRS compliant and can be submitted with your tax return as usual.

To give consent for the electronic W-2, log in to Self-Service, and go to “Tax Information”. Select “Receive my W-2 only in electronic form” and save.

If you are eligible to participate in the university’s health plans, you may also give consent to receive your 1095-C form electronically here also. If you choose to withhold your consent to view/print your online W-2 and 1095-C, a paper copy will be mailed to your home address.

If you have questions, please contact Dawn Bury at ext 2159 or

* The new UE license plate design is available in Indiana

UE license plate information

License plates are on a 7-year cycle. If you are not due for a plate when you renew, you will not receive the new design. We are receiving mixed messages from the BMV about getting the new UE plate design when renewing online. To ensure you receive the new design, we suggest you visit your local BMV branch and ASK for the new UE design.

UE receives $25 of every plate registered! And you become a donor, BUT we need to know that you have a UE plate. When the BMV asks you if you would like to share your information with UE, please say YES! If you are renewing online, please check the box for EACH plate to allow the BMV to send us your information.

Let’s show our UE spirit all over Indiana and the country! #GivingInspiresChange #TrueandLoyal

* Spring 2020 Purple Friday Patrol Sign Ups Now Available!

Purple Friday Patrol: Wear Purple—Get Prizes!

Be on the lookout for the Purple Friday Patrol every week and sign up here to pass out the purple praise!

On Fridays, we wear purple, and each week, the PFP will reward students to promote school spirit both on campus and online through the use of the hashtag, #UEPurpleFriday.

Purple Friday Patrol Teams are made up of members of the campus community including faculty, administrators, and other interested parties, usually from the same department or group.

PFP Teams can sign up for one or more Fridays per semester and the Office of University Relations will supply Purple Swag Packs to the designated PFP Team for the week. PFP Teams are invited to add a personal touch to the swag packs, if desired. (ex. departmental swag, promo for an upcoming event, etc.)

Purple Friday Patrol Teams: What’s my responsibility?
1. Sign up for at least one Friday per semester.
2. Visit the office of University Relations in Sampson Hall during the week of your assigned Friday to pick up your Purple Swag Packs
3. Pass out the purple praise. The distribution format is up to you. You can pass out swag packs to the first few purple people you see, or you can stagger the rewards throughout the day. If you’d prefer to reward online participants, you’re free to promote on official UE social media accounts.
4. Pics or it didn’t happen. Remember, we’re trying to promote school spirit both on campus and online through the use of the hashtag, #UEPurpleFriday, so be sure to snap a picture with your purple people!
