GETTING STARTED AT CPS
myNortheastern Access (https://my.northeastern.edu)
“myNortheastern” is Northeastern University’s community portal, and it is used to access many University services. In addition to accessing the myNortheastern portal, your myNortheastern account credentials (username and password) are also used to authenticate your identity for access to E-mail, Blackboard, and a variety of other Northeastern University services listed below or in the IS@NU Service Catalog (https://its.northeastern.edu/services-resources-category/).
Basic information on what’s available through your myNortheastern account can be found at: https://its.northeastern.edu/services/mynortheastern/
You will need to claim your myNortheastern account, which you are generally able to do between 2 and 5 business days after being hired.
Open a Web browser and type in this address: http://outlook.com/owa/neu.edu. You can log in using your myNortheastern username and password (you will need to have activated your myNortheastern account in order to access your e-mail). Please note that it can take up to an hour for newly created myNortheastern accounts to be recognized by the Web e-mail system.
Important Note: All University correspondence will be sent to your NEU email address. Click here for instructions on how to forward your NEU email automatically to your personal or business address.
Northeastern Blackboard (https://northeastern.blackboard.com)
Northeastern University utilizes Blackboard as its learning management system. The College requires all faculty to complete a two-week, fully-online training program to introduce you to the Blackboard system and assist you in “building” your first course. You will automatically be enrolled in the next available training program and will receive email communication from NU Online about getting started. In addition to this initial training, the NU Online team also provides ongoing support through their Instructional Design team, as well as a wealth of information on their Instructor Resource Center.
