Your User ID and Password

Student Central

Staff member helps student on computer.

New students:

Your user ID and a temporary 7 digit password were mailed to you shortly after you applied for admission.

Returning students:

All students will be required to create a new WebAdvisor password the first time they login after 7:30 am on Monday, March 2, 2020. See "Password" below for details. 

Your single login Username ID and Password gives you access to these systems:
  • WebAdvisor - the University's online registration system
  • Webmail (email) - the email system to use for all communications with the University 
  • Nexus - the learning management system 
  • Library - the library's online resources and your library account
  • Ellucian GO - free mobile app - For more information and instructions, please see Ellucian GO

User ID

If you have forgotten your user ID, you can retrieve this on WebAdvisor.

  • Go to WebAdvisor and click Log In.
  • Choose What's my User ID? 
  • Enter your last name and your student number and click submit. Your User ID should then be displayed.


The new password you create must:

  • be between 9-24 characters in length
  • not be one of your last three passwords
  • contain at least one upper case letter
  • contain at least one lower case letter
  • contain at least one number
  • contain at least one special character from the following list: comma (,), exclamation mark (!), double quotation mark (“), single quotation mark (‘), number sign (#), dollar sign ($), percent sign (%), star (*), plus (+), hyphen (-), underscore (_), period (.), forward slash (/), caret (^),square open parenthesis ([), square closed parenthesis (]), accent grave (`), open parenthesis [(] or closed parenthesis [)]

If your password does not meet this requirement, WebAdvisor will not allow you to update your password.

If you have forgotten your password, use the Password Hint or the new Re-set option: 

  • Click on “Log in” at the top of WebAdvisor and select “Forgot My Password.” 
  • For the Re-set option, you will be prompted to enter your student number, last name, and to select an alternate email address that we have on file for you. 
  • An email will then be sent to you with a new temporary password for WebAdvisor.

Please note:  Password information can only be sent to an alternate email address already on file with the University.  It cannot be given over the phone or sent to an email address that we do not have on file. If we do not have an alternate email address on file, you can complete a Personal Update form - see Forms - and fax it to 204.783.4996 or email it to
