Beginning spring semester, 2008, all students will be issued a myWallaceID username. The following document explains how to reset the password on your myWallaceID account.

NOTE: The password reset will change the password for all myWallaceID services. The reset procedure takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, once you have completed the following procedure.

To reset your myWallaceID account password, open your web browser and go to the link:

http://mywallaceid.wallacestate.edu

You will see the following page:

Enter your student number and date of birth in the fields to the right and click the submit button. (Hint: You can click the calendar icon on the right of the Date Of Birth field to pull up a calendar)

During the activation process, you were asked to set a challenge question and answer.  The system now asks for the answer to the question you previously have supplied.

Allow 15 minutes for the system to complete the changes, and then use http://www.wallacestate.edu to connect with all of your Wallace State Community College services!

One final note: "The Blackboard Account Created: No!" will change to a "Blackboard Account Created: Yes!" once we have enrolled you into Blackboard. These enrollments are take place during the first few weeks of a semester. If the semester has started and you still see a "No!" here, please let us know!

Additionally, once your password has been set in the system, the links to the right will change to allow you to reset your password, and the "Change is Pending" will change to "Set!". If you forget your password, please revisit this page to change it!
