Username

Your Stevens username is assigned to you when you enter Stevens. It has a maximum of 8 characters, and takes the form of first letter of your first name and the first 7 characters of your last name. If you have a common first initial and last name, the last digit/letter of your username will be replaced with a digit incrementally. You'll see this more with certain common last names. Once you become affiliated with Stevens, you will receive a letter containing this information. You can contact the Stevens Helpdesk to verify your username if you misplaced the original letter.

Password

Log in for the first time with the initial password provided to you by the Undergraduate or Graduate Admissions Office. It is recommended you change your password using the Password Service which can be accessed under "My Info" on the left side of the myStevens page.

If you've forgotten your password, please use the Password Service and a reset link will be sent to your non-Stevens email address. You are required to know ONE of the following:

  • Campus Wide ID
  • Stevens username
  • Social security number
  • First name, last name, and date of birth

If you have trouble, you can contact the Stevens Helpdesk. A password can only be reset for a user who contacts the Help Desk directly.

FAQ

How do I get my myStevens account?

How do I forward my email?

What happens when I graduate?

A: After graduation your myStevens services will soon become unavailable. However if you have email forwarding set-up then that forwarding will remain for a semester. This means that emails sent to your username@stevens.edu will still be forwarded to another email address. This feature is available to allow students a year to update their web services with a different email address. Before the forwarding is removed (after the tradition semester) you will receive email warnings.
