Faculty Only: You may use a workaround while Webassign is unavailable

Cengage, the vendor for the Webassign content tool in eCampus, has not provided an ETA for the restoration of service. However, there is a workaround: You can provide the course key to your students, and they can login directly using that key at https://www.webassign.net/wa-auth/class-key/enroll

If you need the course keys, you can log into https://www.webassign.com or call Cengage support at 800-354-9706.

ITS continuing to work on lingering access issues for many students

Faculty: It's taking longer than anticipated to resolve access issues related to the problems we experienced yesterday. The majority of the accounts yet to be fixed belong to students. Until their issues are resolved, many of them may be unable to access Portal, eCampus, MyPrinting, WVU.Encrypted and other services. This could affect their ability to meet deadlines and submit work. 

We will update you as more information becomes available. We sincerely apologize for the continuing disruption. Follow @WVUITServices or "like" WVU Information Technology for the fastest updates.
