Faculty and staff must complete a Login Request Form to obtain computer accounts.

New staff who participate in an orientation/sign-up interview in Human Resources will complete a Login Request Form at that time. The userid and password for these accounts will be mailed to staff.

A Login Request Form may be completed online by all faculty members. The userid and password for these accounts will be available at the ITS Help Desk (Library); faculty will be required to present a photo ID and to sign the Login Request Form at the ITS Help Desk. Every effort will be made to have userid(s)/password(s) available one business day following submission of the online form.

A Sponsored Login Request Form is also available online. This form must be completed by employees whose positions were not posted on the Human Resources web site, visiting professors, students requiring Banner access, and all non-employees at WLU. The signature of a sponsor is also required on these forms. The requestor must pick up the userid(s) and password(s) at the ITS Help Desk (Library).
