First Year Writing Sample Instructions

To log into Plato go to:

Click on the “Log in to Plato” button.

Your username will be your first initial, your last name and last 4 digits of your CWID (Campus Wide ID, AKA your A #).  All lower case, no spaces, dashes or hyphens.

Your initial password will be your CWID with a capital A.

When you log in for the first time you should change your password. Click on your NAME in the top right corner; choose SETTINGS, then PERSONAL INFORMATION, and CHANGE PASSWORD.

This password is NOT related to the MyWestfield, WSU email, WSU Library and campus computers which are all connected to each other, but separate from Plato.

All Student passwords are reset to your CWID with a capital A at the beginning of each semester.

If you have issues logging into Plato please click on the Plato Help Desk below the “Log in to Plato” button on the Plato home page to submit a ticket, or call the Center for Instructional Technology during regular business hours at 413-572-8130 for assistance.

Thank you.
