Welcome to Bishop’s University, Gaiter! The links down below are intended to help you find your way around our campus website and who to ask for help based on your needs.
1. Where to find my student ID
Finding your own information can sometimes be difficult. Powercampus self-service is where you will find all of your information from your student number to your account balance to your transcript.
Where to find Powercampus self-service?
Where to find my student number?
Sometimes you will need to provide a student number. You will be able to find it on your Bishop’s Student ID. You can also find it once you have logged in to Powercampus, you will click on “My Profile” > “Account Information” and it will be the number next to “system ID”
There are two methods to find your ID number, the physical way and the digital way. Most likely, you will be able to find your ID number the physical way, as it is on your Student ID Card, which you should have on you at all times.
Method One: Your Student ID Card
Locate your student ID. If you do not have an ID, go to the Paterson Front Desk and they will take your picture and print you a card. On the front of your card, to the right of your name and to the left of your date of birth is your 9-digit student ID number.
Method Two: myBU + Powercampus
If you do not have a student card or it is not readily accessible, you can log in through myBU and find it in Powercampus (where you register for classes and find tuition statements). Log into myBU from the Bishop’s homepage. On the right, under “Campus Applications & Sites”, select “Powercampus Self Service”.
Along the top of the page are several tabs. Click on “My Profile”.
On the “My Profile” tab, select “Account Information”.
Your student ID number is listed as “System ID”. Even though it is hyphenated it is the same 9 digits as those that would be on your Student ID.
2. Who should I contact?
Below are the different departments who can contact based on what you need.
“I’m not able to register for a course”
