Where do I get my Salem State Username?

Student Usernames

Salem State identifies a student username with the letter "S" followed by a student identification number, or student ID. Computer-generated student IDs are issued to students who:

  • Applied to the university to be a full-time student
  • Take a course as a non-matriculated or a non-credit student
  • Took a course or attended years ago

To find your student ID, go to Navigator Login and navigate to "Account Help." Salem State usernames can be used to log into Navigator, WiFi, email, and Canvas. 

TIP: Your student ID may no longer be active in the system. Contact the Student Navigation Center at 978.542.8000 if you can't reset your password.
