We're excited that you will be joining the Law School Community soon and congratulate you on being accepted to Santa Clara University School of Law.  

Once you are officially accepted to Law School, Santa Clara University will begin the initial on-boarding process. Santa Clara University IT will be busy creating network user accounts. Once that is finished, then you will get an official notice from the Unviersity to set up eCampus, MySCU, G-Suite eMail, and Camino. This tutorial will help you set up eCampus, MySCU, G-Suite eMail, and Camino even while you are off campus.

NOTE: It is recommended that you change and set your MySCU password to the same as your eCampus password. By doing so, eCampus, MySCU, SCU G-Suite eMail, and Camino passwords will be the same.

Once you have successfully setup MySCU, you will now have access to SCU G-Suite eMail and Camino. Make sure you change your MySCU Portal password.


MySCU Portal = Network ID = Camino ID = Safe Connect ID, e.g. If your SCU Email address is RBGinsburg@scu.edu, then your MySCU Portal, Network, Safe Connect, and Camino user IDs are all RBGinsburg

If you have issues with any portion MySCU setup, then call the University IT Service Center at 408-554-5700 or visit their IT Service Desk located in the main library and learning commons on campus.
