Welcome to The Long Blue Line! Now that you've been accepted, there are a few things to take care of before classes begin. We are here to help every step of the way! We can't wait for you to join the W family!
Log into Banner
The Banner instructions tell you how to find out what your email address at The W is. Log into Banner to view this and check it often! Email is the official communication for The W and important notices will come through your W email account. Banner is also the place to view financial aid, register for classes when the time comes, and more!

Submit Immunization Records
The W requires that students submit an immunization form showing proof of two doses of MMR vaccine (measles, mumps, rubella). The first MMR should have been administered at 12 months of age (an MMR given prior to the first birthday is null and void per the Mississippi State Department of Health) and the second given prior to entry to kindergarten. The Mississippi State Department of Health mandates that ALL state universities comply with this requirement. Failure to present proof of immunization can prevent you from being in good standing with The W and result in a hold being placed on your account that will prevent class registration. For more information about immunizations, contact the Health Center at 662.329.7289. If all of your courses will be offered online, please contact the Office of Admissions to get the immunization requirement waived.
