Network Authentication

To register you will need to provide your WSU Network ID and password. If you have not yet created your NID and password you can do so following the first time user steps below. When logging into the system, please keep the following things in mind:

  • Friend ID accounts will not be able to log-in to the visitation registration. Only the student Network ID and password will work.
  • The Network ID is typically your first name dot last name (example: jane.doe) and is case-sensitive.
  • You must have cookies enabled in your web browser for the log-in to work.
