Student Computer Accounts

Watch a Tutorial on How to Set up Your Computer Accounts

WPI students need to set up two primary accounts: Bannerweb and myWPI.

If you are taking your first course, your WPI Operations Manager will be in contact with you, and will send you course details in order for you to set up your accounts. If you have questions or need assistance, you can contact your WPI Operations Manager or the WPI Help Desk.



Pay tuition, view final grades, see unofficial transcripts, view/update your personal information on file with WPI, and register for courses. All students must check in through BannerWeb in the fall and spring.



Allows you to access and participate in courses for which you are registered. Through the process of setting up your Canvas account, you will also set up your WPI email account.


Computer & Laptop Capabilities

Students must have access to a computer with compatible software either already installed, or which you have the ability to install, as required on a course by course basis. In addition, it is also expected that you have at your disposal the use of word processing and spreadsheet programs for the completion and/or preparation of assignments, as well as high speed internet access. Some courses require a DVD-ROM drive and permissions to install software. Faculty will notify you of these requirements before the start of the class. All students will also need a microphone input jack on a sound card. Review the technical requirements for more information.

Account Maintenance

You can reset or modify your existing accounts through the Help Desk.


Please note, if you are inactive for a fall or spring semester, you may need to recreate your computer accounts. To do this, log into Bannerweb and follow the instructions for creating your accounts.
