Step One - eCampus Setup.  Once you get the notification email from Santa Clara University, you will need log into eCampus for the first time and change your eCampus password and then retrieve your initial SCU Electronic Info, which contains your SCU Network ID/Username and initial password. SCU Network ID/Username and initial password will be used to log into/setup your MySCU portal page in the next section.

Go to the Additional Resources section and select My System Profile



Select Change password link.



Next, enter your temporary eCampus password in the "Current Password" entry box, then enter your new password, and re-enter your new password again to confirm your new password. Select OK to apply changes. 

Now test your newly created eCampus password, Sign Out and test your eCampus access with your new password.


NOTE: If you have issues logging into eCampus, 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.

Select SCU Student Electronic Info.



Make a note of your Email and SCU Network ID and Original Email Passwords for each. You will need the SCU Network ID/Username to setup MySCU portal page in the next section of this document.


Please note that Email ID and SCU Network ID are the same.





Step Two - MySCU portal setup.  Once you have successfully retrieved your SCU Network ID and temporary password from eCampus, then set up MySCU.

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, EAAccount), then enter your SCU Network ID/Username and password.


Rember 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
