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.

Faculty Email
