Welcome to Santa Clara University!
The Technology for Academic Success Series is intended to get you up and running on the technologies that will be used during your academic career at Santa Clara University. This will be a phased rollout, Phase I to IV.
Secure your account from remote attackers with this extra layer of protection. This is required for Google Workspace, Workday, and Microsoft 365.
This process is intended for students who want/need to take a language course at SCU. All students must complete the Language Placement Process prior to taking their first language course at SCU. This process will identify the course(s) for you to take as your first course here at SCU.
SCUs Learning Management System is Camino. Faculty and students use Camino to manage course materials, easily communicate, post course materials, submit assignments, view grades, etc. You now have access to the Technology for Academic Success Course and the Winter 2024 First Year Advising and Enrollment Course.
Access Workday through MySCU Portal (this will require DUO 2-Factor Authentication). During the onboarding process you can access tasks in the Awaiting Your Action preview box or the Inbox icon on the home screen. Use the New Student Onboarding Training Guide for assistance.
Complete the following onboarding tasks in Workday:
- Annual Online Agreement
- Manage My Privacy Settings
- Review My Personal Information
- My Home Contact Information
- Review My Friends and Family
- FERPA Release
- Review/Acknowledge Bulletin
- Make My Federal Student Aid Authorizations
- Consent to Receive Form 1098 Electronically
In Workday Academics you will find the tools for registration activity, viewing your academic record, and academic advising.
In Workday Personal Information you can view and change addresses, phone numbers, emails, and emergency contact contact information.
When you arrive on campus you will want to use the SCU wireless network. Family and friends are welcome to use our guest network, but you will want to use Eduroam so that you can access the MySCU Portal. Eduroam requires your machine have:
- A current antivirus or our free antivirus, SentinelOne (if you have your own up-to-date antivirus, here is a list of verified antivirus products that can be used at SCU).
- ClearPass OnGuard, the network access control (NAC) solution.
