Email policy change takes effect Aug. 24

Because Washington State University is committed to providing excellent communication to all students, we have made an important policy change regarding email correspondence.

Effective this Fall:

All official WSU email communication must be sent to students’ WSU email address, beginning on August 24 (the first day of fall 2015 classes).

In myWSU (formerly zzusis), all students’ preferred email will be the WSU email (@wsu.edu). It is important for students to check their WSU email often for news and updates regarding enrollment, registration, financial aid, housing, and other University information. Please visit the FAQ page for more information.

Please note the changes in login procedures and the enhanced technology features added over the summer:

  • Students’ Office 365 email login has changed from first.lastname@email.wsu.edu to NIDusername@wsu.edu.
    • The word “email” has been dropped from the login.
    • Students’ email login is now the same as their login to myWSU.
  • Microsoft Office is available to enrolled students at no additional cost. They can download up to five copies now at my.wsu.edu.

For assistance accessing WSU email or more information about Office365, please contact CougTech at (509) 335-4357 or visit cougtech.wsu.edu.
