CWID is the campus wide identification number that replaced Social Security Numbers* for many campus transactions involving password protected information records and requests from specific departments. All students, faculty, and staff are assigned a CWID.

Users needing to locate their CWID can do so by logging into MyCharleston and looking in the Cougar Card Mini Statement channel on the My Accounts tab.
