Your myStevens account is used to access myStevens. This is a general web portal for people affiliated with Stevens to access campus technology services, view announcements, and keep in touch with campus life.

This is also the account used to access your Stevens Email.

General Information

Effective Wednesday, July 28, 2010, Stevens Pipeline has been replaced with myStevens, which incorporates a single sign-on page that binds the logon to all instances (and tabs) of a browser. The most common services are displayed as icons, and those used less frequently as links below the icons, reducing the number of clicks necessary to reach a Stevens web service.

The direct logon to Web Self Services (Web for Students) using the Campus Wide ID and PIN has been eliminated. Logon to Web Self Services will only be possible by first logging onto myStevens.

Please feel free to direct comments and questions to the Information Technology Help Desk at 201.216.5500 or www.stevens.edu/helpdesk.

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 go to logon help or contact the Stevens Helpdesk to verify your username if you misplaced the original letter.

Password

Log in for the first time with the PIN 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.

Bookmarking myStevens

If you wish to save a bookmark in your web browser for easy access to myStevens, please edit the bookmark so it points to http://www.stevens.edu/mystevens or http://www.stevens.edu/ms. You will not be able to use a bookmark that points to the URL of the Shibboleth login page.

Logging Out

Please protect your myStevens account. Because the single sign-on system (Shibboleth) authenticates your entire browser session, you must fully exit your browser (all tabs, all windows) in order to log out of myStevens. There is no "log out" button.

For iOS devices, you must quit Mobile Safari, which is different from closing Mobile Safari.

  • To quit Mobile Safari in iOS version...
    • 3.x, hold the Sleep/Wake switch until the "Slide to power off" screen appears, then hold the Home button until the Home Screen is visible again.
    • 4.x, Double-tap the Home Button to reveal your recently used Apps. Tap and hold the Safari icon down until the icons begin to wiggle. Tap the Minus button in the upper left hand corner. The icon will vanish. Safari has quit.

FAQ

How do I get my myStevens account?

A: First, you need to be accepted by Stevens. Once you receive your acceptance letter, you need to submit your deposit/intent to enroll. Your account will be automatically generated at this point. You should receive a letter in the mail regarding your myStevens account.

How do I forward my email?

A: Your Stevens email can be forwarded to another email address using the Message Center. Please refer to our instructions here: How To Forward Your Email To Another Account.

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.
