  2. Step 1 - Security Agreement: Read the agreement to abide by OSU security policies. Click on the I agree button at bottom of page.

  3. Step 2 - Security Questions: You will select from a list of security questions one at a time and answer them. When finished click on the Submit button.

If you already have a wireless account name.#w (e.g. brutus.2011w) this account is now considered stale meaning the password cannot be reset. The username and password will expire on 10/31/11. Anyone with a name.#w username and related password will need to re-register by 10/31/11 at my.osu.edu under their regular username (e.g. brutus.2011) for a password conforming to the new OSU IdM(Identity and Access Management) standards.
