Setting up  your myWSU account for the first time

New employees will need the following pieces of information:

  1. myWSU ID number.
  2. State of Kansas (SHARP) ID (you can get this from HR).
  3. Your Shocker Card issue date. You will need to go to the Shocker Card Center in the Rhatigan Student Center to get an ID card. The issue date will be printed on the card. You must wait until the following day before the system will recognize the date on a new card.

Use the following steps to set up your myWSU account:

  1. Go to http://mywsu.wichita.edu.
  2. Click "Manage your password".
  3. Enter your myWSU ID in the first blank and click "Submit".
    • Note: If it tells you the account is locked, try again the next day. Your account may not have been generated yet.
  4. Answer the questions that follow. These will usually be Shocker Card Issue Date and State Employee ID.  However, if you are not yet marked as an employee, or you have been here before, they may be different. 
  5. Click "Next".
  6. Select, and answer three questions from the list and click "Submit" (step 6 may be skipped if you have previously set up an account).
