R'Web self-service FAQ's
Re-Authorizing Users for Student Record, Payment Account and Direct Deposit
Do I have to re-authorize my parent or guardian so they can view my student account
and/or pay on my account?
Yes. Your current information (email, permanent address, etc.) has migrated to R’Web self-service. However, you'll need to re-authorize users for both your Student Record AND Payment Account as this information did not carry over to R'Web.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The process to grant Authorized User access to your Student Record AND Authorized User access to your Payment Account ARE two DIFFERENT PROCESSES. Re-Authorizing users to each must be done using different processes.
How to re-add an Authorized User to a student Record:
Re-adding an Authorized User to your Student Record (for viewing and speaking access):
- Log in to R’Web.
- Select the Authorization and Privacy icon in the Authorized Applications window.
- Select Authorized User, and then select Proxy to add an Authorized User to your account.
- Follow the screen instructions. An email will be sent to your Authorized User (Proxy) who will need to follow the instructions and links contained in the email to set up their Authorized User (Proxy) account.

The transition will not impact your email. You will still be able to access your R'Mail from R'Web.
Getting help from the UCR Helpdesk
What plans are in place in case there is a problem with one of the systems after R'Web self-service goes live?
While we expect the Growl to R'Web self-service transition to proceed per our plan, there will undoubtedly be challenges despite the extensive testing, training, communications, and software development we’ve done. Having said this, we are committed to resolving any problems or issues that may arise, as quickly as possible once they are identified.
The Student Help Desk is available by email and by phone at (951) 827-6495 to answer a variety of questions related to computing services offered at UCR.
Student Help Desk phone hours are:
Monday – Thursday: 7:30am to 10pm
Friday: 7:30am to 8pm
Saturday & Sunday: Noon to 5pm
Closed on holidays
Reduced hours during breaks and summer
Self-service kiosks are available in the computer labs in Sproul Hall 2225, Olmsted Hall 1316, Watkins Hall 2111 and the Bear Help Desk in the HUB to assist with many account-related functions, including UCR Net ID lookups and password resets.
Access to R'Web self-service
Is R'Web the only way I can access the apps that were once available in Growl?
Will all the information that falls under Degree Check, Grades and Classes be transferred to R'Web?
Yes, all of the tools you currently use in Growl will be found in R’Web self-servicee.
Transitioning from Growl to R'Web
I don't remember my password to log into R'web. What do I do?
If you’ve forgotten your password go here.
Growl shut down and I needed to make payments to my account. What do I do?
Current charges billed between 9/17/2016 and 10/18/2016 are not considered “Late” if paid by 3:00 pm. On November 15, 2016.
If the GROWL site is down after Oct 14 then why is the new R'WEB starting on Oct 21? Shouldn't they be closer in date and/or the same day?
To successfully transition data from one platform to another, systems must be taken offline to prevent changes from being made to records during the transfer. Once the data is transferred from Growl to R’Web, we examine and test all the new systems to ensure the data transferred as expected. We cannot do this while Growl or the new system is online, hence the seven day “offline” period.
Will the transition to the new system affect my tuition deadlines or my loan reimbursements?
Your loan reimbursements should NOT be affected. As long as all your requirements are turned in to the Financial Aid office no later than October 12 (you can turn them in any time before that too) your reimbursement won’t be affected. The campus timed the transition from Growl to R’Web self-service so it would NOT impact tuition deadlines. The new system will integrate a number of functions that are currently accessed in separate, sometimes incompatible systems. When R’Web self-service goes live on October 21, you will be able to transact all our business in one place– academic history, financial aid, grades, student account information, personal information, iLearn, schedule of classes, registration, transcript ordering verifications, text books, and more.
