Visit the Bison ID page if you’re having trouble figuring out your student email address.

Q. Why do I have to use my WCC student email to sign in?
This is to ensure that your student information at the college will be matched to your scholarship application. It is not only required but to your advantage to use your student email address so that you can be matched to the best scholarship opportunities.

Q. What password should I use?
Your password must contain 12 characters and include 1 uppercase letter, 1 lowercase letter, 1 digit, and 1 special character.

Please note: The password cannot be a word or variation of a word that can be found in the dictionary and easily guessed (i.e. P@ssword2356). Suggestions for creating your password are 1. Total randomization (i.e. #ghwlpO206a %), or 2. elongated phrases (i.e. H@@v3An11ced@@y for “have a nice day”).
