Washington University’s online student information system is called WebSTAC (web-based student access system). WebSTAC provides students with access to certain academic and billing information. In addition, students may update limited data fields, such as addresses and phone numbers.
Setting up your account

- Verify parent/guardian information: It is important to verify parent/guardian information so we will have an alternate contact in case of emergency.

About your PIN
To gain entry to the private record functions on the WEBSTAC system, you must enter your student identification number and a four-digit personal identification number (PIN) number. Your Student Identification Number (SIDN) is your social security number or, in some cases, a nine-digit assigned student number.
You should NEVER release your SIDN or PIN to any other individual. These numbers control on-line access to your private record information, including grades and account data. Divulging your access numbers undermines the security of such private data and is prohibited the the Confidentiality Nondisclosure Agreement you signed with the School of Medicine.
New students are advised of their assigned PIN numbers during orientation. You can verify your SIDN and PIN at your program office or the Medical School Registrar’s Office. Because of the confidentiality of these numbers, you must present a valid picture ID, such as Washington University Student ID card or a drivers license.
Navigating in WebSTAC
Medical and graduate allied program student may use the following menu items:
= requires login with SIDN and PIN required
- MY RECORDS
- ACCOUNT BALANCE
- CLASS SCHEDULE*
- STUDENT RECORD PRINTOUT*
- MY PROFILE
- EMAIL ADDRESS
- INFORMATION RESTRICTIONS
- COURSE LISTINGS
- ALL COURSES BY SEMESTER
*Prints in a formal report format with institution name, document title and date for student use
Certain screens within the record system will require your input of semester codes. These codes are formatted by year for medical students and by semester for allied health program or other students. Year entries are formatted as YR01 (Fall 2001 and Spring 2002); Semester entries are formatted as FL01 (Fall 2001) or SP02 (Spring 2002).
Once you are at the initial WebSTAC screen, you will notice a black and white menu to the left. This menu is used to select Course Listings information. Once you select the Course Listings option by clicking on it, an expanded menu will appear. The All Courses choice allows you to view a historic listing of all courses ever offered at the School of Medicine. The Courses by Semester choice permits you to view a list of courses offered during a particular semester or school year at the medical school.
Private record access
At the intial WebSTAC screen, you can alternately input your Student ID ( without hyphens) and PIN numbers to access any of your private record information. To maintain the confidentiality of your PIN, it will not appear when typed.
It is important that you enter both your Student ID and PIN numbers correctly. After five incorrect entries, you will be denied further system access for the day. This additional system precaution assumes that with five failed attempts someone other than you is attempting to access your account.
Please be aware that the WebSTAC system menu will also be your exit point from the system. If you are using a public access terminal, you should always quit the system using the LOGOUT icon. This will guarantee that the next user will not have access to your record.
