Password Assistance

You're using your new account, right?

In an effort to shorten the number of passwords you need to remember, in February 2015, WNC provided all users with a new WNC Anywhere Login that will replaced your previous log in to:

New Students

If this is your first semester, Canvas will not be available until 5 days before the start of the new semester.


Your username to this new login is your student ID with a w in front of it. If your student ID was 1001234567, then your username will be w1001234567.

Please visit https://intranet.wnc.edu/activate/ to activate your new account if you have not done so already.

Faculty, Staff & Student Employees

Your username will be in a first.last name format. For example, if your name is Mike Smith, then mike.smith is your username.

Your account should be provided to you when you begin employment.
