Changes for Fall 2018:

Due to recent phishing emails, Wallace Community College has implemented the following changes to the WCC Student Email System:
  1. On Wednesday, August 29, 2018:
    1. All student passwords will be reset to the Default Password and MUST BE CHANGED before accessing online resources (Blackboard, WiFi, Student Email, etc.)
      1. Default Password - Three (3) letters of last name first one capitalized, two (2) digit year of birth, seven (7) digit student number Ex: Smith born in 1996 with student number 1234567, Smi961234567
      2. Change Password - Go to https://passwords.wallace.edu and login using your GovNET username and Default Password or log into any on-campus computer.
    2. All students must use a Multi-Factor Authentication system (similar to Facebook and Google accounts) to access your email.  Remember, you MUST HAVE ACCESS to the device you setup for authentication.  
      1. Smart Phone Setup (Recommended) - Download the Microsoft Authenticator from your App Store and configure when you login the first time.
      2. Text Message or Phone Call Setup - You can setup the system to text or call up to two (2) numbers to verify your accounts.  This can be your cell phone or home phone (use office option for home phone). 
      3. Updating Authentication Options - You can go to https://aka.ms/MFASetup and update your options when logged in.  Here are some instructions.
