Account Information

It is mostly initials and surname, e.g. bbronco for Bucky Bronco. This is the account login ID you will use to access various apps at MySCU Portal via Single Sign-On.

Students can retrieve their SCU Username and password from eCampus. Login to eCampus, and go to Personal Portfolio - SCU Electronic Information.

eCampus

eCampus is the gateway to SCU's student administration system, providing system users with the ability to easily: manage classes, view grades and course history, request transcripts, view enrollment dates, manage Financial Aid, pay SCU bills, and more.

Please Note: At the moment, eCampus is not available in our Single Sign-on system––nor does it share the same password (as your SCU Username).

For students, your eCampus User ID is different from your SCU Username, and is usually of the form W000123. To request a new password, click on the Forgot Your Password? link on the eCampus site.

To change your password once you are logged into eCampus, go to My System Profile, Change Password.

If you are unsure of your eCampus User ID, or for other assistance please contact the Technology Help Desk by calling (408) 554-5700 (x5700 from on-campus) or emailing techdesk@scu.edu.

 

Camino Learning Management System (Canvas)

Camino is used by SCU faculty and students in their face-to-face, blended, and online courses, enabling system users to easily: manage course materials, post documentation online, create user-centric content (e.g., wikis and blogs), empower communication and collaboration, plus more.

Your Camino account can be accessed from the MySCU Portal login page. If you are not already logged in to another Single Sign-on application, you will be asked to log in with your SCU Username and password. 

For assistance using Camino contact Media Services at (408) 551-3572 or caminosupport@scu.edu.

The University wireless network is accessed utilizing your SCU Username & password. When you first start up your wireless device, select "SCU-Student", with password "gosantaclara" (for students) or "SCU-Employee", with password "GoBroncos" (for staff and faculty). After the network has been added, launch a web browser & navigate to an offsite website such as Yahoo, Google, etc. and you will be presented with a login screen. When you see the SafeConnect authentication screen, login with your SCU Username and password. 

You will be asked to reauthenticate at the beginning of every quarter.
