All Southern Connecticut State University students, faculty, and staff are issued University accounts. This account can be used to access most technology resources by logging into the MySCSU web portal, hosted by Microsoft’s MyApps service. This account (email address and password) can also be used to log in to University computers, MySCSU, the Student Printing system, and wireless network (eduroam).

Your full email address is your username and your first password will be SCSU!MMDDYY (MMDDYY is your six digit date of birth). All passwords must must be complex and have a 90 day expiration policy. When creating a new password, it must be unique and meet the following restrictions.

  • Must contain at least one letter.
  • Must contain at least one number.
  • Must contain at least one special character.
  • Must not contain too much of your first or last name.
  • Must be at least eight characters long.

To prevent others from accessing your personal information, you should always log out of the service(s) or websites after using MyApps. The best way to do this is to log out of all services and websites that you have accessed and then completely exit your web browser. If you are having problems signing in to your account, you can reset your password by going to the SCSU password reset page. If you are having problems resetting your password then you can refer to the links below:

Faculty, Staff and Students will be required to use Multi-Factor authentication when accessing SCSU accounts from off-campus. Also, employees who use an SCSU provided Apple macOS computer should review the Apple macOS and Keychain Access article for tips on how to avoid keychain access errors.
