"Current Students" includes any person who has enrolled in a class within the past two years. 

"Everyone Else" includes authorized users and former students (away for more than two years) who no longer have MyWashburn access.  

Authorized users are assigned a PIN when the student requests their access in WU-View using a valid email address.  

Former student login requires the Washburn ID and assigned PIN (please be sure to capitalize the "W"). A PIN can be obtained by contacting the Business Office at or by calling 785-670-2033.
