Student accounts for the 15-16 school year are ready!
Q1. How can I activate my student account?
A1. You have two options…
Option #1: Activate your account from home... visit: https://www.google.com
Click on SIGN IN. You will be prompted for your full email address (your @wdmcs.org address) Your initial password will be the same as your user name and in lowercase only (which is the part of your email address that comes before the @ symbol) If you aren’t sure what your user name is, please see question #3. Once you are logged in, the system will force you to change your password.
– or –
Option #2: Activate your account at school… When you get to school, log in at a desktop computer (or a laptop from the laptop carts) (using your user ID, and then the same ID again for your password, again lowercase only). The system will force you to change your password as soon as you log in. By changing your password to something unique – the system will activate your computer account and your Google account.
Q2. What is the format of the username (aka user ID)?
A2. It’s the same format we’ve always used that includes first initial of your first name, first initial of your last name and student number. If you have a nickname identified in Infinite Campus, then that takes precedence over your first name initial. Here’s an example: Elizabeth Johnson, student number 12345. She actually goes by Beth instead of Elizabeth, so her username is BJ12345. If she didn’t have a nickname identified in Infinite Campus, then her username would be EJ12345.
Q3. My username/password isn’t working – how can I verify what my username is?
A3. Log into Infinite Campus, click on CONTACT PREFERENCES – in the Secondary Email Address field is your @wdmcs.org student email address. The part before the @wdmcs.org is your username.
Q4. Once I change my password to something unique – what is that unique password associated with. . . just my computer log in? My google login? Or both?
A4. Once you change your password, that new password is now used for BOTH your computer login and your Google account. However, this DOES NOT replace your Infinite Campus password.
Q5. My Google email address used to be @wdmtigers.org – what is it now?
A5. All staff and students use “@wdmcs.org” as part of their email addresses. This change was needed as part of implementing New Tech Networks at some of our schools.
