myWSU expands services: earning, benefits, library, etc.

MyWSU recently expanded its services, becoming a more personalized one-stop shop for faculty, staff and students on the Internet.

“This is our Internet portal,” explained Lavon Frazier, director of University Information System Services. “MyWSU now serves as the entryway for employees and students to access the information they need. We have consolidated eInfoCenters and METRO under the myWSU umbrella. And by incorporating a new technology, we have improved the single sign-on to create one secure website available with network ID and password.”

MyWSU is available at       

The big changeover happened on July 6 when the eInfoCenters (which housed a variety of student and employee functions) and METRO (a student registration site) moved to myWSU. Examples of functions frequently used by employees and now found in myWSU are:

* viewing earning statements
* viewing status of employee benefits
* checking CougarCard balances and adding funds
* viewing library records and renewing books

Frazier noted that more functions will soon be added to myWSU. “We are poised to bring even more under the myWSU umbrella within the next year,” she said.

The myWSU project began in 2002 with the goal of making it easy for all employees and staff to find everything they needed in one place with one secure sign-in. The pilot release of the project was in September of 2003.

Frazier suggested that links on any Web pages to eInfoCenter or METRO services for students and/or employees should be replaced with a link to myWSU at The “looking for eInfoCenter or METRO?” page contains the location of each service in myWSU, so this can be used as a reference. Links meant for future students, alumni, parents and other members of the University community should be redirected to the appropriate service as listed on the new WSU eAffiliatedServices page at

Frazier suggested contacting Lynn Hulett ( or Brian Foley ( for more detailed information regarding link changes.
