|How do I access my Black Board Account?
WPCC utilizes Blackboard, an e-Learning platform, to offer students a flexible alternative to the traditional seated classroom environment.
WPCC will be utilizing a free email service from Google Apps for Education, so all WPCC students will be issued an email address with the extension @go.wpcc.edu. Please do not create a Google email account because it will go to @gmail.com instead of @go.wpcc.edu.
To access your student email click on http://mail.go.wpcc.edu
A very helpful tutorial is available on the Google Apps website.
How do I get an alumni email account after graduation, or concluding my studies?
Will my student email account ever be deleted?
Student email accounts will be automatically be removed after one year of inactivity based on information received from Google reports, or 30 days after official notification of graduation from the Office of Records and Registration.
Students that forward their student email to a personal email account, should log directly into their student email account at least once a month, to keep it active.
How do I log in to WPCC computers?
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). If you have difficulty figuring out your Username, there is an online utility which will do it for you. Click to lookup your Student Login ID (Username).
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.
