Connecting to WiFi - Mobile

WiFi

Washington College utilizes the authentication tool known as ClearPass.
ClearPass

Why ClearPass?

ClearPass allows all members of the WC campus community to connect their WiFi devices to the College wireless networks.

Once you connect your device to the WC WiFi network, that device will be recognized and connected for up to 90 days.  Your device will remain authenticated as long as your password is valid.  When your password is changed, your device will remain authenticated until forced to recheck authentication.  This occurs if you disconnect/reconnect to WC Wireless.

 

 

The new ClearPass system is much more reliable at allowing an authenticated device to stay connected around campus without having to reconnect in different locations.
