Class accounts may be requested by standing faculty of member institutions and are used to access the WRDS web interface. These accounts are primarily for student usage that is associated with a specific class and all students in the class share the same password. This password is not to be shared with any other individual outside of the class. Class accounts can accommodate up to 15 simultaneous users. These accounts do NOT include disk storage, access to the WRDS Cloud, or the ability to access WRDS data interactively through SAS, Python, R, MATLAB, Stata, etc. These accounts expire at the end of the semester. Class accounts need to be set up by the Professor, approved by the WRDS Representative, and should not be carried over for the next semester's class.
If at any time an account type is approved incorrectly, the WRDS Representative is able to make the appropriate changes through the Rep Tools on the WRDS website.
