Getting Started

In order to sign in to your HSU email account, first visit mail.google.com.

Username

You will be brought to the sign-in page and will be asked to enter your HSU email address. Your HSU email address will be the first 6 letters of your last name (or your entire last name if it is 6 letters or less), followed by the first letter of your first name, followed by @hsu.edu*. For example, Dallas Deaton's username would be deatond (the entire last name since it is 6 letters long, followed by 'd', the first letter of her first name). John Doe's username would be doej, and so on.

Password

Next, you will be asked to enter your password. Your default password format is as follows:

LLLLSSSS (where LLLL represents the first four letters of your last name in all caps, and SSSS represents the last four digits of your social security number**)
