New log-on banner comes to university devices

Due to State of Kansas policy requirements, starting the weekend of July 2, a new log-on warning will be rolling out over the course of the weekend to all university devices

What is a log-on warning? Prior to logging onto any device on campus, a log-on warning will appear on the screen. The log-on warning defines that the system is monitored for improper use and directs users to read the acceptable use policy located at This does not impact the usage of the device and will appear before every log-on.

Who will get this message? All WSU-owned devices, including Apple macOS and Windows. There will be no change to NIAR’s warning as part of the deployment.

Why do we need this? The state policy has made log-on warnings a requirement among institutions and agencies. Additionally, this helps to ensure we meet compliance obligations undertaken by many areas of the university.

When will this happen? Starting July 2, the change will go into effect across campus. It may take a few days to appear on your WSU-owned device, or longer if you are off campus.
