The Schedule Builder applications require specific access in myWSU. Your department signing authority must request this for you PRIOR to the training. This access will be temporarily granted for the "myWSU: Schedule Builder" training class. When you have successfully completed your training, your access will be granted permanently.
Though you'll want to schedule your Schedule Builder training class first, do request your myWSU access with CSD as soon as you have your date. They will hold your access until that date.
