Students that have been issued a student email account may have that account switched to an alumni account after graduation, or when concluding their studies at Western Piedmont. Please contact the alumni email administrator at alumniadmin@alumni.wpcc.edu, or complete the online form, and request an alumni account be set up. Read some frequently asked questions about alumni email.

Logging Into WPCC Computers

WPCC has created Login IDs (Usernames) for all registered students. You should use this Username along with your password to log into any computer on campus to which you have legal access. Is most cases, your Username is your last name, followed by the first letter of your first name, and first letter of your middle name, all in lowercase with no spaces or periods.

If you do not have a middle initial, your username will probably contain only your lastname, followed by your first initial. In some cases where these naming conventions create duplicates, the College may add the last two digits of your Student ID Number to your Username. (Your Student ID Number is seven digits long and may be found on your current registration statement or in your admission letter. For example: 0018759).

Your Password for this Username will be your first initial, last initial (lower case, no spacing) and then your (7) digit Student ID Number printed on your Class Schedule or registration statement. Example: mj0012345.

Common Example:
Username: johnsonmr
Password: mj0012345

Example when there are duplicate names:
Username: johnsonmr45
Password: mj0012345
