Welcome MSBL Class of 2021!

We use Canvas as the MSBL course management system. There is a link to Canvas in the upper right-hand portion of every SU page, use that link to access. Once you Log In using your SU username and password, you will find a link called "Courses and Groups" that will allow you to see a list of all the classes you are registered for. Clicking on any course should take you to its homepage. From there it should be self-explanatory. Most courses have readings and assignments due before the first class. Remember that EVERY course in the MSBL program works this way.

MSBL Fall Registration

By now most students are already registered for both Fall classes. If you still need to register for SBLR 5170 and SBLR 5020 and are having any trouble, please email Rose Kaser.

Seattle University Email

It is Seattle University policy that once you are registered, all communications must be done via SU email. Don't miss out on important info and begin checking your SU email account regularly!

SU Students are provided with a single network account, this same username and password are used to login to computers on campus as well as SU email, Canvas, and SUOnline.

Visit Information Technology Services' Guide for New Student Technology for more information about SU email and technology support for new students.

SU Technology Support 

You will need access to Microsoft Word as this is the file type accepted by most MSBL faculty. Almost everything you turn in will be in electronic form. The review and comment features in Word facilitate faculty feedback. Seattle University offers students various access to Microsoft Office and Office 365. Please go to Technical Purchasing for details.
