Soon after the end of the spring semester, the login.wvu.edu site will be changing, and so will some of the processes you currently use. The new WVU Login site should be ready for use in mid-May, so if you need to change your password over summer break, you will notice some differences.
Information Technology Services is replacing the system behind login.wvu.edu because the vendor that created the software is no longer in business.No immediate changes are required, and your username and email address are not affected. ITS will provide more details and instructional materials in the coming weeks.
WVU Medicine is also changing the way it manages accounts this spring. Any faculty or staff members who are also employed by or affiliates of WVUM will automatically be moved into the hospital’s system and will be notified when passwords must be reset. Employees and affiliates of WVUM include: residents, University Health Associates, WVU Physicians of Charleston, WVU Dental Corp. and University Healthcare Physicians. Again, no immediate change is required if you are one of these affiliates.
