Getting Started

Get Your Seawolf ID. Then Login.

You will use your SSU Seawolf ID and password to access your email, registration, WiFi network, and more. Once you are enrolled, you should be able to obtain your userid and set a password via the Online Services PIN Master. Your Seawolf ID is the key to accessing many services at SSU, so keep it safe and don't share it with others.

You'll find a Login link at the top of many SSU web pages. This link takes you to the Online Services Portal. Login to access MySSU, Seawolf Gmail, Moodle, and more.
