About Your WWCC Password

Your WWCC NetID password is also referred to as your WWCC password. It is the password that is associated with your WWCC computing account.

Your WWCC NetID password is the one that you enter on the WWCC NetID login page when you are accessing many WWCC systems, including MyWWCC, CCNET, and campus computers.

 

Password Requirements

To protect information and resources, Walla Walla Community College requires strong passwords for all user accounts. 

To be considered strong, your password (or passphrase – see below) should: 

  • Must be at least 14 characters long
  • Special characters (recommended, not required)
  • Cannot be a password you have used with us before 
  • Password may not contain your name or WWCC NetID  
  • Commonly used passwords such as “Password123” will not be accepted 

Recommendations: 

  • Use a passphrase instead of a password
  • Examples of passphrases:
    • !Mary_Had_a_Little_Lamb! 
    • !2OreosChocolateChip! 
  • Need help generating a passphrase?
    Hint: Check the Approximate Crack Time to test the strength of your passphrase or password 

Update Your Programs and Devices

After changing your password on the ITS website, you will also need to update where your password has been stored. This includes email applications and WWCC wireless settings.

Account holders should be aware that it may take up to 15 minutes for your new password to become effective. During this time, your old password will continue to function.

 

Systems That Rely on the WWCC Password

Below is a list of some of the primary systems that require your WWCC password. When you change your WWCC password, the change will apply to the systems below.

  • Microsoft Office 365
  • Microsoft Outlook
  • MyWWCC and all single-sign on applications when accessed through MyWWCC
  • WWCC Secure Wireless
  • Campus Computers

Note: Some WWCC schools and departments maintain local systems that are not dependent on the WWCC password. Systems, where you are asked for PIN (instead of a password), are not dependent on your WWCC password.
