CWIS computing accounts give users access to cwis.usc.edu, the USC web server. These accounts enable web publishing for academic, research, administrative and service units, university-affiliated faculty/staff organizations and professional organizations with a USC web site maintainer.
- Access to an official USC web site
- Access to Google Site Search on your website
All academic, research, administrative and service units, university-affiliated faculty/staff organizations and professional organizations with a USC web site maintainer are eligible for CWIS accounts.
Faculty and staff who wish to publish personal web pages should see itservices.usc.edu/web/hosting/facultystaff/. Students who wish to publish personal web pages should see itservices.usc.edu/web/hosting/students/.
To apply for a CWIS account, please see your department’s authorized signer.
A separate application is required for an organizational email account.
Each person who requests access as a data maintainer, and is approved by the department authorized signer, is assigned a login on cwis.usc.edu, with privileges to edit files within specified directories.
CWIS accounts need to be renewed at the end of each fiscal year (June 30). If you don’t remember to renew your account, it will be disabled. To ensure uninterrupted service, ITS recommends that you contact your department’s authorized signer, who is responsible for account renewals, no later than June 1.
For additional information on web hosting at USC, see itservices.usc.edu/web/hosting.
All account holders are responsible for adhering to university policies governing the use of Web resources at USC.
