Each Shawnee State student receives access to several tools that require a username and password in order to access them.

Today we will walk through logging in and setting up a password for each of these tools. If you have already accessed these accounts on your own, this is a good time to login to each one and make sure remember your username and password.

What you need to get started:

When you were accepted to Shawnee State University, you should have received a letter with your student ID number, your university email address, and the format for the initial passwords of each of these accounts.  You will need this information to proceed.

If you need assistance obtaining your Student ID number or other information please contact the Admissions Office at admissions@shawnee.edu

All of your accounts can be accessed from the Current Student Tab of the Shawnee State University website anytime you need them.

Let’s get started!

1. MySSU

The first account you will need to gain access to is your MySSU account.

MySSU is Shawnee State’s student portal. The MySSU system is where you register for classes, view your grades, access financial aid, and receive official University communications. This account is created at the time you are accepted as a student.

Login Details

  • Your initial password can be found in the letter you received from Admissions.
