Security :: Secure Authentication

Secure authentication is the process by which the HSU computer networks determine that you are who you claim to be and grant you access to those parts of the network you are authorized to access. The process is accomplished through the combination of your unique HSU User Name and Password and your role at the University.

The process begins when you first become associated with the University. All new faculty and staff must complete the Account Activation Checklist before email and other computer accounts can be accessed. Once that step is completed, you can log in to the Account Center to activate, change or verify the password for your HSU User Name. Remember that your HSU User Name must always be entered in lower-case letters.
