WMU login screen is used to login to several online services, like, Elearning, GoWMU. The login page continuously updated them with new technology.
The latest login provides a single page where you can easily enter the Bronco NetID and Password. So, you can easily find links for self-help accessing and other resource support.
Sometimes, when you are trying to enter the WIN or email address instead of the Bronco NetID, an alert message appears on the screen.
Also, in some applications, you need to use two-factor authentication (2FA).
WMU login Instructions
Thoroughly follow the remaining part of this guide and get an accurate idea about the login process.
If you are a student and once you have been admitted to the university, an email address will be sent to your personal email address in order to set a password.
To set the password, you will need the WIN. The WIN will also be sent to your personal email ID. However, after admitted if you are unable to receive these emails, immediately contact the Help Desk for assistance.
For the Faculty/ Staff/All other Accounts
If you are a faculty member, you will receive the Bronco NetID as well as a temporary password from the supervisor. But before login, you should set the password.
Two- Factor Authentication (2FA)
In some applications, enable two-factor authentication ( 2FA). Before you start, ensure that you have your Bronco NetID and password.
Also, select the Remember Me option. Instantly a dialog box will pop up on the display that allows the device to remember the ID and Password for 30 days.
With the Duo Push Notification:
If you wish to do the authentication with the Duo push notification, choose the ‘Send Me a Push’ option. Immediately, a notification will be sent to your device.
Once you have received the login instructions on your device, click on the Approve button.
Create a Passcode Via Duo App:
In case, you are unable to access the internet from your Android device or tablet, you can still do the two-factor authentication by creating a passcode.
To perform the task, first, open the Duo Mobile App. Now, select the Western Michigan University account. Instantly, a passcode will be pop up on the screen. Note it down somewhere.
When you see the secondary authentication method in the display for login, choose the ‘Enter a Passcode’ option. After that, type the passcode that you have previously noted down.
Now, tap on the login option. Keeping this in mind, the generated passcode will be expired after 30 days.
Generate a Passcode through the Test Message:
When the display prompted for the secondary authentication method, you need to select the ‘Enter a Passcode’ option. Move to the bottom of the Dup window and tap on the ‘Text me new codes’ option.
A text message with 10 passcodes will be sent to your device. You should type the first passcode within the Duo window. Afterward, hit the Log in option.
Next time, when you are trying to log in, just use the next code in the passcode list.
Here some of the common login issues and their solutions are given.
Don’t Remember the Password
In case, you have forgotten the current password, perform a hard 30-30-30 reset. To do so, at first, make sure that the router is powered on. Next, press and hold the Reset button for 30 to 45 seconds.
You will then see the Reset button at the backside of the router. Keep holding the Reset button and unplug the power cable of the router. Hold the reset button for another 30 to 40 seconds.
Now, enter the new password. In case, you receive a temporary password from the help desk, you should reset the password before login.
Since you have changed the password, it is quite possible that the password has expired as per the Password policy. So, in case, you think that the password has expired then, you have to update the password.
Sometimes due to a break in the enrollment your account can be inactivated. So, if you are a student and like to activate the account, you have to take readmission to the university.
