Setup Your Account

If you have never used your SPU Username and Password to log into resources, such as Banner, Webmail or Canvas, you'll need to setup your credentials first.  Follow the steps below to setup your account.

Step-by-step guide

Go to and select New User or go to the New User Setup page.

  1. Enter your non-SPU Email Address or use a combination of your SPU ID and Birthdate to locate your account.
    1. If you do not know your SPU ID Number, you may also enter your SSN and Birthdate.
  2. Click Find Me.
  3. If the system successfully locates your account, you will be prompted to add a non-SPU Email Address to your account.
    1. This address is only used for password resets.
  4. Setup your password when prompted.
    1. Passwords must be at least 8 characters long.  Please reference our Good Password page for information on how to set a secure password.
  5. You will receive an email confirmation notice that includes your SPU Username and information on how to use your credential.


If you cannot use the New User Setup page, then you may have already setup your credentials. Try using the Recover Username and Reset Password options on the page.

If you graduated before we used the Banner Info System, you may need to have your Academic Record digitally entered into the Banner Info System first. Information may be found on our Alumni Email Address page.
