Set your Timeout Option
By default, the system will log you out after 15 minutes of inactivity. If you are accessing MyWashburn from a public lab setting, this setting makes it less likely that someone will access your account if you accidentally forget to log out.
- Select the "My Account" link on the upper left.
- Under the "Change Timeout" section, choose your new timeout setting from the pull-down list. (If you are taking online courses using Angel, it is important to increase your MyWashburn time out to at least 120 minutes in order to accommodate idle time that may occur when reading assignments etc.)

Review the MyWashburn Navigation Bar
The MyWashburn navigation bar remains on the screen as you navigate through the various tabs in MyWashburn. What tabs you see and the content on the tabs is determined by your "role." (Basic roles include faculty, employee, and student.)
Students should review information about opting out of the printed campus directory. This information is available on the Students tab of MyWashburn.
Faculty/staff should review information published in the printed campus directory and the online faculty/staff directory. This information appears on the Employees tab of MyWashburn.
