SYSTEMS AT TSU

As a student/employee at TSU, you will have these system log-ins:

  • TSU network login (used for logging onto computers on campus); 
    To use any other system on campus, you must first login to the network!

  • myTSU system login (myTSU is the student portal at TSU and is used for course activity, student financial info, and grades)

  • LiveMail (students only) -the email system for TSU students..  All TSU correspondence will be sent to this address.


And some students/employees will have access to:

  • eLearn (online courses)



HOW TO SETUP ---

STEP 1 - GET FAMILIAR

NOTE: MyTSU uses a different password!
The password for eLearn, Windows Live e-Mail, and the campus network are the same, but myTSU uses a different password.

LIVE MAIL (students only):   Please note that you must initially reset your password in order to enable your email account.  Details are in the table further below.

Set up Passwords.  Information on each system and how to setup your password for each system is listed below.  Follow the instructions for "Network/Windows" first because you must be able to log-in to the network before you can log-in to any other systems.
