Activating your Self-Service Account

The first time you attempt to log in on the new system, you will be asked some additional information to verify your identity. You will not need to do this for subsequent logins – after this one-time verification you will be able to access all pages and features as usual with your Bishop’s username and password.

Step 1:

Go to MyBU and login using your Bishop’s credentials.

Step 2:

Under the “Campus applications and sites” section of your myBU dashboard, select “PowerCampus Self Service”

Step 3: 
Fill in your personal information.
(If you are a BU faculty member, an email with the information to validate your ID should have been sent to you. You will need to enter the information provided rather than your own information. If you cannot find this email again, please, contact the Records Office to be provided this info.) .

Important Note:

Leading zeros in the “System ID” are critical, and the “Date of Birth” must be of the form YYYY-MM-DD You can see an example of the form filled out in the picture to the right.
