WSU Email Basics
Your WSU student email account is a valuable tool for communicating with your instructors and WSU staff. It is a primary way that you will stay informed about matters related to your courses and WSU in general. Be sure to check it often, preferably every day.
Also be sure that you use WSU email only to communicate with WSU departments, staff, and instructors.
Be Alert for Suspicious Emails and Phishing Scams
Phishing is an attempt to trick you into revealing private information. Emails, texts, or phone calls can “fish” for information by trying to lure you into clicking on a malicious link or attachment, or giving passwords, credit card numbers, etc., to a malicious third party.
- Review the information under Phishing/Malware on WSU’s Information Security page to learn how to spot a phishing attempt, and what to do if you suspect you’re being phished.
- Report suspicious emails and phishing scams to firstname.lastname@example.org.
