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

General Information

Effective Wednesday, July 28, 2010 Stevens Pipeline will be replaced with a new version that incorporates a single sign-on page that binds the logon to all instances of a browser and tabs. 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 Service (Web for Students) using the Campus Wide ID and PIN will be eliminated. Logon to Web Self Services will only be possible by first logging onto My Stevens Pipeline.

The current Pipeline, including Pipeline e-mail and calendars, will still be available as on icon on the new myStevens or directly by using www.stevens.edu/pipeline. Pipeline must still be used to create away messages and forwarding e-mail addresses.

Since Pipeline will be phased out in the fall, you may want to start transitioning to WebMail if you use Pipeline e-mail. WebMail is available for all users who want to read their e-mail in a web browser. The Address Book (contact list) in Pipeline is not shared with WebMail so if you wish to have your current Pipeline Address Book available in WebMail you will need to export it from Pipeline and import it into WebMail.

As of January 21, 2011, Pipeline has been completely phased out.

Please feel free to direct comments and questions to the Information Technology Help Desk at 201.216.5500 or http://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

If you've forgotten your password, please use the [Stevens Password Service] in order to reset your password.

The Stevens Password Service website requires you to know ONE of the following:

  • Campus Wide ID
  • Stevens Username
  • Social Security Number
  • 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 Helpdesk directly.

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.
