How do I create a Chalk and Wire account or renew my current account?

You will need to purchase a Chalk and Wire account from the KSU Bookstore. Accounts are available for 1 or 2 years. Renewals are also available for 1 year or 2 years. Once you purchase the account, it will be registered in the Chalk and Wire system and you will receive an email to your KSU email account with the appropriate login information either from Chalk and Wire directly or from Angela Lewis. There is generally a three business day turn around between purchasing an account and receiving the log in information. If after this amount of time, you have not received an email regarding your login information please email and be sure to include your name, program name, KSU id number, KSU email address and date that you purchased your account. 

Can I purchase a Chalk and Wire account or renewal without going to the KSU Bookstore?

You can go to the owltec website,, and purchase your Chalk and Wire account online. The login information will be sent to your KSU email address; please bear in mind that it might be automatically directed to your junk folder.
