Your HSU account enables you to log in to email, Moodle, lab computers, the wireless network, and other services for the entire time you are affiliated with HSU. It's also the primary way that we protect personally-identifiable information about you that's stored on HSU computers.

Individuals with the appropriate authorization can also use their HSU User Name and Password to access Oracle/PeopleSoft applications.

Blackboard Collaborate, HSU's web conferencing service, uses your HSU User Name with a different password system for access.
