Beginning spring semester, 2008, all students will be issued a myWallaceID username. The following document explains how to activate a myWallaceID account for use.

NOTE: If you have activated your student email account, your username and password will remain the same. You will be able to use your username and password with Blackboard and Tegrity as well as many other services.

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


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.
Please enter your date of birth in the form: mm/dd/yy or mm/dd/yyyy (Example: 1/13/70 or 1/13/1970)
(Hint: You can click the calendar icon on the right of the Date Of Birth field to pull up a calendar)

If you have not previously activated your email address, you should see the following page:

The activation process tells you that your Challenge Question and Answer is not set. The challenge question and answer are used to protect your account with an additional layer of authentication. Please enter a question and answer that only you will know. Make sure that you will not forget the answer here, since the answer will be requested the next time you log in.

Enter the question and answer and click the submit button.

Once you have submitted your challenge question and answer, if you have not activated your email account previously, you will see the following page:

Enter your new password (create your own password Just make sure that it would something that would be hard to guess) twice and click the submit button.

If all is successful, you will see the success screen as follows:

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!

If you log into http://mywallaceid.wallacestate.edu again, you will see the system prompts you for your challenge answer:

Enter your answer to the question and click submit.

As you can see below, the system is still in the process of updating your new password ("Change is Pending!") Once the new password is active, you will see the word "Set!" in the place of the "Change is Pending!" below.

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. If you forget your password, please revisit this page to change it!
