How do I get my new BSU Account

The process for creating new accounts is different based on your role here at BSU. Please click the link to the section corresponding to your role.

 

 

 

 

Students

As a student at BSU, you will likely need the following accounts:

  • InfoBear - this is where you will view student records, view available classes, register for classes, and more.
  • BSU User Account - this provides you with access to computers and applications on campus as well as establishes your BSU Student Email account.
  • Blackboard - Do your classes have an online component?  If so, your instructor may be using Blackboard to share course materials and manage course assignments.

If a student does not register for classes for two (3) consecutive semesters (including Summer), the student's BSU User Account (including email) will be deleted.

Ebill

Once students are accepted, admitted, and send a deposit to confirm they are attending BSU, the Registrar's Office will send students their Banner ID number and PIN. 
To view Ebill -- select Ebill from the Student Portal site (mybsu.bridgew.edu)  You will use this 8-digit Banner ID with your 6-digit PIN to access your academic record and register for courses via the Web (InfoBear).  

Infobear

Once students are accepted, admitted, and send a deposit to confirm they are attending BSU, they will receive an email to the account they used to apply from BSU Accounts with their Username, Email Address, and initial password. After the email account is set up they will use the Username and Password to log in to InfoBear to register for classes.

User Account

The BSU user account provides you with access to public computers in open access labs on campus, email, the campus network, and Blackboard.  Your BSU user account is automatically created for you once you alert the university of your intent to attend.  You will receive an email with your BSU credentials to the email used for your application. If you did not receive this email when you believe you should have, please check your Junk/Spam folders
If you still are unable to find the email contact us 

For information on accessing your BSU Email account please see Email: How to Access your BSU Email Account

Blackboard

When students receive their BSU User Accounts, have officially registered, and can see their course registration(s) in InfoBear, their Blackboard student accounts are automatically created within 12 hours of registration. *There is no need to request a Blackboard account.*

While students are automatically enrolled in the course site(s) in Blackboard, faculty members must make the course site(s) “available” for students to view. If a student can login to Blackboard, but cannot see their course site(s), the course site(s) may not be available for students to view.

Employees

As a BSU employee, you will likely need some the following accounts:

  • BSU User Account - this provides you with access to computers and applications on campus, access to department printers and network drives, as well as establishes your BSU Email account.
  • Banner - this is where employees view financial, student, personnel records needed for their job responsibilities.
  • Web for Faculty - this is where faculty and advisers can view student information, submit grades, etc

User Account

The BSU user account provides employees with access to campus computers, BSU email, Office 365, training, posting rights to Student Announcements and Community Announcements, software downloads, Cloud PC access, and access to library databases. 

Your BSU user account is automatically created for you once you complete the hiring process through Human Resources.  You will receive an email with your BSU credentials to the email used for your application.  

Banner

Employees who need access to financial, student or personnel records for job responsibilities may need a Banner Account.  In order to request a Banner Account, you will need to complete/return the authorization request.  The form can be accessed by going to on IT Forms page and selecting the link to the  Administrative Systems Access Authorization Form The form should then be sent to the address provided on the form. 

Web for Faculty

When a faculty member is added as the instructor for a course by the registrar's office, they will be able to view their course information on the Web for Faculty.

Web for Faculty & Advisors provides an interactive interface to the administrative database for grading and academic advising. Web for Faculty & Advisers is a completely self-service, web-based solution that provides academic staff with secure access, on-campus or at home, to the information they need to manage course information and advise students.

Blackboard

When the registrar's office adds a Faculty member as an instructor to a course in Banner for the first time, a Blackboard account is automatically created for them.  A department may assign a faculty member to a course but the Blackboard account is not created until the registrar adds him/her to the course in Banner.
