Step 1:Go to <http://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu>
Step 2: Select the Register tab or link “Register for a WRDS Account.”
Step 3: Complete the Account Request form. Once your request is approved, you will receive an email with instructions for setting up a WRDS account with credentials.
Please note: if you already have an existing WRDS account –either active or recently expired—at another institution (because you are a recent graduate or a faculty member who has recently transferred from another institution who has WRDS) do NOT request an additional WRDS account using the process described above. Email WRDS Support to request an account transfer.
