Required Accounts for Eastern Online
Note: Below is information about the accounts EWU students are required to have in order to receive university correspondence and to access all university services. Some of these account types require your student ID in order to activate the service, and there are instructions at the end of this page on how to recover your student ID number if you have lost it.
NetID and Single Sign-on
EWU uses a Single Sign-on (SSO) to allow students to move between multiple secure webpages and services while only requiring students to log in once. Services that currently use the SSO include EagelNet, EagleAXIS, and Canvas, among others. Your SSO username is the same as your NetID account. Your password is the same one you would use to log into the computer lab or EWU’s Wi-Fi. Click here to look up your account name or reset your password.
All Eastern students are required to activate an EagleNET account. This account is used to register for classes, pay bills, order transcripts, and check grades. Activation of an EagleNet account requires your student ID number. You may also log into EagleNet using the Single Sign-on.
All Eastern students are required to have an Eagles email address. Official university email is only sent to this address. Additionally, Eastern Online will only send information (e.g. registration confirmations) to this email address. Set up an Eagles Email account. Creation of a student email account requires your student ID number.
Some students take Eastern Online courses through the Blackboard system. If your course uses this system, then you must create a Blackboard account. For instructions, see the help page Creating a Blackboard Account. Use your Eagles email address when you sign up. Blackboard will no longer be used for Eastern Online beginning summer 2013.
Certain Eastern Online courses are now being offered through Canvas. You may log into Canvas using the Single Sign-on. You will receive information about your Canvas online course through your Eagles email account.
Finding Your Student ID Number
If you do not know your student ID number, contact the EWU Help Desk or the Eastern Online office for assistance.
