New Student Account Activation


New students are provided with a single network account which provides access to SU applications and services including email, Canvas, and SUOnline. Each new student will need to activate their Seattle University account to access important University resources. Please have your SeattleU ID and temporary password readily available to activate your account. 


1. Go to and enter your User ID and Temporary Password to create a new password.

Note: Your user ID will not include your full email address and please enter your Temporary Password in the "Old Password" field.

2. Create a new password for your Seattle University account. Your password must be at least 12 characters in length with no special characters. 

Once you have created your account password, please refer to your admissions email for instructions on how to confirm your attendance to Seattle University.
