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. Usernames can be found by accessing Pioneer Pass and using the “What’s my user ID?” under User Account.

Your Password for this Username may be SET by using Password Master.

TIPS for Password Master Questions:

  1. Your middle initial should be capitalized. If you do not have a middle initial use the asterisk *. Make sure your “CAPS” is off when not needed.
  2. Follow the format for you birthday YEAR-MONTH-DAY (example: 1997-03-30)
  3. If you do not have, or have opted out of giving your SSN to the college, you will enter 5 number 9’s in place of the last 5 digits of your SSN.
