WSU now requires instructors to communicate only through WSU email addresses

Dear English 372 students,

Beginning August 24, instructors can no longer respond to emails sent to your Gmail, Hotmail, etc., addresses. Here’s part of a message from Provost Dan Bernardo to faculty that explains the shift.

Effective this fall:

All official WSU email communication must be sent to students’ WSU email address, beginning on August 24 (the first day of fall 2015 classes).

In myWSU (formerly zzusis), all students’ preferred email will be the WSU email ( It is important to remind students to check their WSU email often for news and updates regarding enrollment, registration, financial aid, housing, and other University information.

Please note the changes in login procedures and the enhanced technology features added over the summer:

Students’ Office 365 email login has changed from first.lastname to NIDusername

– The word “email” has been dropped from the login.

– Students’ email login is now the same as their login to myWSU.

Microsoft Office is available to enrolled students at no additional cost. They can download up to five copies at

For assistance accessing WSU email or more information about Office365, please contact CougTech at 509–335–4357 or visit
