Whichever college or university you are attending, chances are that they do have an e-campus facility in place that is meant to help students (both nation and international) with the admission process, selection of subjects, course credits related information, details on faculty and much more. In other words, this is the website to visit to have all your questions pertaining to your life and times at the university answered. E-campus login can usually be done through the website of the academic establishment.
Ecampus login process
Only students admitted to courses in the university are allowed access to the ecampus portal. So, log in details will be provided upon admission or when you reach the University office. As examples, let us look at the ecampus logins of the University of Rhode Island (URI) and the University of South Alabama (USA).
In both cases, the log in details will be provided by university staff or you will need admission details to establish your account. For instance, in case of the URI, portal, to open an account with the ecampus service, you will have to go to the page at https://appsaprod.uri.edu:9516/psp/sa_user_reg/EMPLOYEE/HRMS/c/URI_COMMUNITY_ACCESS.U_SSREG.GBL.
Provide your first and last name which will be matched with the entries in the student’s database. Registration is a onetime process and once you have your ecampus login details, you can use them for as long as you are enrolled with URI.
You can also search your student details by using the unique 9 digit URI ID number or your social security number (for citizens of the US).
The University of South Alabama uses a different approach when granting access to their ecampus portal, the registration is done when you start attending the school and the student does not handle this initial phase as the login details are provided by the university.
Using ecampus login
To access USA’s ecampus site, you will have to go to https://ecampus.southalabama.edu/library/skin/usa/home.html. In the middle of the page, you will see the sign in form. Insert your username and password and simply click on the red “sign in” button.
For URI, the sign up form is available on https://appsaprod.uri.edu:9503/psp/sahrprod_m2/?cmd=login. Once again, you will be required to type in the username and the password set by you during registration. Next, click on the gray “sign in” button to access the dashboard. The University asks all students to log out of their ecampus accounts once they are done to prevent unauthorized access.
Remember that along with academic information, the e-campus portal will also be able to provide financial and visa related information for international students. Considering the sensitive nature of this data, it would be best to keep your ecampus login details private.
Recovering ecampus log in passwords
Given the academic grind that you will be put through, there are always chances that you may forget your ecampus password. To get your login details back, here is what you will need to do:
For USA: On the login page at https://ecampus.southalabama.edu/library/skin/usa/home.html, right next to the “sign-in” button you will find the password recovery link. Click on it and a popup window will appear on your screen. On it, you will find three options, pick the one that says “student password reset”.
The page that you are redirected to will have options for people who know their password and would like to change it as well as for students who are first time users or have lost their passwords. Choose the latter. You will need your Jag Number and your PAWS PIN to access your account. If you cannot remember your PIN, you can find it by answering the security question but you will need to have your JAG number to access this facility.
For URI: To reset your ecampus login password with URI, go to the sign in page at https://appsaprod.uri.edu:9503/psp/sahrprod_m2/?cmd=login and use the “password recovery” link. Enter your email in the form on the recovery page and the password will be emailed to you.
