MyISU Portal FAQ

Introduction

MyISU Portal is used by faculty, staff, and students to access a number of applications and functions based on their roles at Indiana State University.   MyISU Portal is accessed using standard Microsoft University Credentials, just like your Outlook Email (university email account and university password).  When a person signs into the portal, their identity is verified and various roles are assigned to to the user.  Those roles determine the type of information that you see - and the applications that you can access.

Mobile Application

The MyISU Mobile Application is available on both the Android Play Store and Apple iTunes. Simply login to your phone's Apps Download site - and search for:  MyISU

The installation and setup is straight forward and you should be up and running in a matter of minutes.

The mobile application provides a very clean and easy-to-read platform that provides access to all mobile-friendly applications at the university.  Changes to the Engage Portal are automatically reflected in the MyISU Mobile Application.  In addition, the MyISU App allows for direct messaging to targeted groups if necessary.
