Changes to WINGS Express Authentication for 5/24

On Sunday, May 24, the University is consolidating account credentials down to a single Campus Username and Password, and will no longer use the UID and PIN for authentication. This change was originally scheduled for March 17, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 situation.

What Actions Do I Take Now?
As long as you know your Campus 'w' Username and Password, you do not need to take any action. If you don't know your Campus credentials, contact the CaTS Help Desk at 937-775-4827 to recover them.

What Differences Will I Notice?
The primary difference you will notice is that you will no longer use your UID and PIN when logging in to WINGS Express. You will now be able to access WINGS Express by logging into WINGS and clicking the WINGS Express icon in the top righthand corner, or directly at and using your Campus Username and Password to log in.

Other Important Information Regarding This Change
You will still have a UID assigned to you as a member of Wright State. If you are a current faculty, staff, or student and already know your UID, it will remain the same after this change. New faculty, staff, and students will still be assigned a UID, but there will no longer be a PIN associated with the UID.

You are still encouraged to know your UID, as you may be asked for it as a personal identifier when contacting departments on campus, ordering official transcripts, etc.

If you have any questions, contact the CaTS Help Desk at 937-775-4827, or emailĀ Please note that CaTS is unable to provide any account information via email.
