NOTE: If you did not receive a notification email from SCU concerning registration information such as claiming your SCU account, then please contact SCU One Stop at, https://www.scu.edu/onestop/ or call 408-551-1000SCU One Stop office will make sure that you are in good standing with the University Bursar's Office

Step One - SCU Account Claim Process Setup

Once you get the notification email from Santa Clara University, you must follow those directions to claim your account. They are also included below.

Complete Step 1 of the Account Claim Process by entering your SCU ID, Last Name, and Claim Code from the email.

Read SCU’s Acceptable Use Policy by clicking on the link. If you agree to the terms, check the box next to "You must agree to the terms to claim your account." When you are ready, click Next.

Complete Step 2 of the Account Claim Process by updating your password to a password that meets the requirements listed. You will be asked to enter a new password and then verify it by entering it again. When you are ready click Next.

A message appears that indicates you have successfully completed the Account Claim Process. Your SCU Username appears in the message. This is your MySCU Portal username. 

You are now ready to log in with your new credentials. Log in at: https://login.scu.edu

Note: In the example above Bucky Bronco is given the SCU Username BBronco. If BBronco was already in use the system might assign BBronco2, etc. Now that Bucky knows his SCU Username is BBronco, he also knows his email address is bbronco@scu.edu.

Step Two - MySCU portal setup 

Once you have successfully retrieved your SCU Network ID and password, then set up MySCU.

Visit MySCU login page, https://www.scu.edu/login/. At MySCU login page, you will enter SCU Network ID/Username and password that you created.

Once you have login, then can access G suite (SCU Email inbox and apps); Camino (class materials); EAAccounts (Access Office), Zoom, etc.

Once you have successfully setup MySCU and updated your MySCU portal password, you will now have access to all the MySCU applications.

Please note that some of the MySCU portal apps don't require you to re-enter your SCU Network ID/Username and password because the passwords are synced via our single sign-on network. However,  if it does prompt you (e.g. Camino, Zoom, EA Account), then enter your SCU Network ID/Username and password. Also, some applications will need SCU's two factor authentication app, Duo so set up Duo 2FA when you have set up MySCU.

Remember that, MySCU Portal ID = SCU Network ID/SCU = Camino ID = Safe Connect ID, For example, If your SCU Email address is RBGinsburg@scu.edu, then your MySCU Portal, Network, Camino and Safe Connect user IDs are all RBGinsburg

NOTE: If you have issues logging in, then call the University IT Service Center at 408-554-5700, seek online help ( Computing Service Support ) or visit their IT Service Desk located in the main library and learning commons on campus.

Step 3 - Bonus Steps. Verify you have Anti-Virus and/or install Microsoft (Office) 365 EDU


If you have an approved Anti-Virus software, then skip this install. Santa Clara University requires that you have an anti-virus software install on your laptop to gain access to the campus WiFi network

Visit https://www.scu.edu/technology/quick-start-guide-for-students/ and check out what Santa Clara University recommends.

Duo 2FA and ClearPass OnGuard

Santa Clara University is serious about protecting you and your information. Santa Clara University IT requires all faculty, staff, and students to implement two factor authentication, called Duo 2FA. To setup Duo2FA, then check this page on how to setup Santa Clara University Duo 2FA.
OnGuard will be required to gain full access to SCU networks. OnGuard will make sure your system is running up-to-date anti-virus/anti-malware software as well as modern up-to-date operating systems. Failing to install the OnGuard agent or not fixing issues OnGuard finds will result in loss of network access.

To download ClearPass OnGuard from off campus, then visit the SCU OnGuard agent download site.

From on campus, you can point your browser to https://www.scu.edu/onguard to download the agent. You can also goto https://www.scu.edu/eduroam and click the links above the log in box.
