On Monday October 15th at approximately 7 a.m., Information Technology will be making a change related to how WPUNJ accounts authenticate into the Microsoft Office 365 online service.

While we do not anticipate any issues related to this change, it is possible that Outlook desktop clients on both PC and Mac may prompt individuals to login to their account again.

If you use the Outlook desktop application to access your WPUNJ email and do receive a prompt to login on or after Monday morning, you should login with your full WPUNJ email address as the username along with your normal password.

If you encounter any issues, please contact the Helpdesk at www.wpunj.edu/help or 973.720.4357.

IMPORTANT ALERT: Compromised WPUNJ Accounts and Phishing Emails

Over the last few months, we have seen a significant increase in phishing emails originating from both non-wpunj accounts and compromised WPUNJ email accounts.

This has resulted in several money-oriented scams including:      

  • attempts to manipulate both employee direct deposit and student refund bank account information
  • scam emails advertising fake online jobs that ultimately intend to have scammed individuals cash bad checks (examples include FourLoko, Rockstar Energy Drink)

As a reminder, you can and should change the password for your WP account through WPconnect. To do so, click on the dropdown arrow in the upper right hand corner next to your name and select "Change Password". Updating your password here will change your WP account passwords across the various services and systems at the university. 

If you believe that you may have provided your WP credentials or responded to a phishing message, please reset your password as soon as possible. If you are a student expecting a refund, you should take a moment to confirm that your bank account information set for your refund is correct.

If you need assistance in evaluating your account or a suspicious email, please contact our Helpdesk at either www.wpunj.edu/help or 973.720.4357.

We highly recommend taking a few minutes to watch the video below to educate yourself on common online scams and how to protect yourself against them.
