EWU Student, faculty, or staff


To access https://canvas.ewu.edu, use your regular EWU NetID username and password.


Student passwords expire annually. Faculty and staff passwords expire every 120 days, unless your are using Duo. If your password has expired, you will not be able to login to Canvas or other EWU online services.


If your login is no longer working and you know that your password is correct, it has likely expired. To change your password in this case:


  1. Go to https://account.ewu.edu



  2. Login using your existing password.

  3. You may be asked to setup your password recovery questions. Complete them to continue.

  4. Select the Change Password option. Enter a new password that meets the complexity requirements. Click the Change Password button at the bottom to continue. Your password is changed and you should be able to login to Canvas again.


  5. Consider taking a moment to update your Profile. If provide your SMS number or personal email address, you can use those options to recover a forgotten password in the future.



If you do not know your NetID password and you have previously setup your password recovery questions or provided a personal email or SMS number follow the steps below:

  1. Go to https://account.ewu.edu
  2. Select Forgotten Password

  3. Enter your NetID username (if you do not know your username, please contact the Help Desk at 509-359-2247)



  4. Your available options may vary, depending on whether you've just set your password recovery questions or if you've provided a SMS number or personal email address. If you haven't previously provided any of this information, you will receive a PWM error message. To reset your password, you will need to call the IT Help Desk at 509-359-2247. Passwords are not set over email for security reasons.


  5. Set your password.
