Online Enrollment Guide

Step 1 - Confirm Your Intent to Enroll

This lets us know you plan to enroll at WSSU. It also creates your WSSU student email address, allows you to apply for on-campus housing, and complete the other enrollment steps.

Confirm Your Intent To Enroll

  • Go to Banner RAMS Online
  • Click on Check Your Admission Status
  • Enter your Banner ID and PIN (PIN is your date of birth in mmddyy format until you change it)
  • Click on Entry Term (i.e. Spring 2017, Summer 2017, Fall 2017)
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page
  • Click on Confirm Admissions Acceptance

Step 2 - Know Your WSSU Email Address

WSSU student email is an official method for all university communications. It is often the primary source of communication for our students. For example, you will receive notifications from Financial Aid, Housing and Residence Life, Student Accounts, and other divisions through your WSSU email account.

After you accept your offer of Admission, you will receive a WSSU email address. (Please allow 3 business days for your email address to be activated.)

To find your WSSU Email address:

  • Go to Banner RAMS Online
  • Click Enter Secure Area
  • Enter your Banner ID and PIN (PIN is your date of birth in mmddyy format until you change it)
  • Click Personal Information
  • Click View E-mail Address(es)

Your WSSU email address will be in the format username@rams.wssu.edu.

The username for your email account is your email address username - jsmith116 for example. For new students that have never logged into their email account, your password will be:

First letter of the first name UPPERCASE
First letter of the last name lowercase
Banner ID

(Example - For a student named John Smith with a Banner ID of 123456789, their password would be Js123456789. Once you log in for the first time, you will be prompted to change your password.)

To access WSSU’s student e-mail system, logon to Microsoft Outlook Web App. You will be prompted to enroll into RAM Access Management Portal (RAMP). For more information visit the RAMP web pages or contact Technology Support Services at 336-750-3431.

Step 3 - Submit Final Transcripts

If you are currently enrolled in classes at a high school or another college/university you must submit official, final transcripts. Final, official transcripts are required to confirm your completion of a degree or specific courses, confirm you still meet the WSSU admission requirements, and determine your status to receive financial aid, attend classes and live on-campus.

Submit an official copy of your final high school and/or college transcript(s) to:

WSSU Admissions Office
Anderson Center Suite 137
601 S. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive
