Network Account

  • When students register for classes a network account is created.
  • When staff or faculty is hired an account is created after a Network Account Request Form is submitted to the IT Department.
  • This account is used to log into the network and is also used to access your Western Oklahoma State College email online.
  • This account is also used to access many IT services provided to you.
  • The Computer/Network account consists of a username and password.
  • Student's username is usually the user's first name, period, and then last name.
  • Faculty and staff usernames are usually the same as student usernames.
  • The password is default three letters, and then four numbers. This can be changed on the website or by request made to the Helpdesk.
  • As part of the initial logon process a password change will be required.
  • There are many locations at Western with wireless access via the WOSCpublicWireless and WOSCstaffWireless networks. To access these networks, simply connect to the network as you normally would, and open a browser window. When the window opens, it will have a login page. To access the internet, your login is the same as your online students login and password.
