myWSU is your applicant and student portal, where you can view your admission status, financial aid and scholarships, register for classes, check your grades, and much more. The following information will serve as a guide for the setup and use of your myWSU account.
First time users
How to log in to myWSU for the first time (students or applicants):
Turn off all pop-up blockers from your internet browser.
Go to the Account Creation webpage and enter the Temporary Access Network Key (TANK) that was emailed to you when you applied for admission (if you don’t know your TANK, please contact the Office of Admissions at 888-468-6978 or email@example.com).
You will be prompted to select an email address for a PIN delivery.
Create a password for your Network ID along with a “Question and Answer” combination for additional security. After submitting, a confirmation email will follow shortly.
Keep a record of your new Network ID, as you will continue to use this throughout your time at WSU. Print the confirmation page or store a copy in a safe location until you’ve memorized your new Network ID and password.
If you have any questions during the Network ID account creation process, please contact the WSU Help Desk, Monday-Friday between 8:00am-5:00pm (PST), at 509-335-4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to view a student’s information with Third Party Access (Parents/Spouses):
The WSU student or applicant will need to log in to their myWSU account here.
From the main menu select “self service” then click “third party access.”
Select “third party access” again and follow instructions on how to give access.
How to update your contact information (email, mailing address, phone number, etc.):
Select the class that you want to drop and click “drop selected class,” then “confirm.”
Select the box of the class that you want to drop and click “drop selected class.”
How to purchase software for your computer:
From your myWSU homepage, find the Quick Links section.
Under this heading select “Tech Store.” You will then be directed to the Tech Store’s homepage (where you may find other useful resources – computer rentals, which software is appropriate, contact info, etc.)
Select the tab at the top of the page titled “Personal Purchases.” You will be directed to a list of brand links that you may purchase software through.
Select the link that fits your search and you will be directed to a buying page for the brand (i.e. Apple directs to the ‘purchases for education’ page and Microsoft directs to another links page for free software that can be downloaded and a purchasing option for WSU students).
