My TSU Web Portal and Google Apps for Students at TSU

TSU is pleased to announce two new online services for students, My TSU Web Portal and Google Apps.

My TSU Web Portal

The My TSU Web Portal is a top-quality system for students that provides easy single sign-on access to a variety of

online resources and services including, but not limited to, registration, financial aid, bill/fee payment, summary

statements, academic history, grades, unofficial transcripts, degree audits, Google Apps (including Gmail), TSU web

content, messages, and Blackboard.

Students will be able to access the TSU Web Portal using one of the following methods:

Go to the My TSU Web Portal page at http://portal.tsu.edu/.

Go to the TSU Home page at http://www.tsu.edu and click the MyTSUweb link located at the top

right-hand corner of the page. After the MyTSUweb page displays, click Students.

There is no need to remember multiple passwords; students will only need to login once via the My TSU Web portal to

access most online resources and services. All students will need a user name and initial password to login to the My

TSU Web Portal.
