ArcGIS for Students

Students can request access to ArcGIS planning software for academic use. You can request access by doing the following:

  1. Login to your myWSU account at
  2. On the Home tab, look for the ArcGIS link. It will be in the Student Tools box in the Software section. Click on that link.
  3. It will display your eligibility status and allow you to request access.
  4. Once your access is granted you will be shown your key. A link to a document with download and install instructions will also be shown at that time.

It is highly recommended that if you are not taking the relevant course by Dr. David Hughes that you contact him at for training in the use of the software.
