My NSU Identity



SharkLink is NSU's online portal. With a single username and password, students, employees, and alumni can easily access many online university applications including NSU email, Web calendars, online groups, WebSTAR, and WebCT.

Access SharkLink

The SharkLink ID is the same as the NSU Email Name and is automatically assigned to you when you become a new student, financial aid applicant, faculty, or staff member of NSU. The password you retrieve below will be your initial (temporary) password. This password will only be valid the first time you access your account. Please also register with SharkPass so you may reset your password should you forget it.

Your NSU Email Name & Password is used for:

  • Your SharkLink Login
  • Your NSU Email Account
  • WebSTAR
  • SharkPass
  • Security access to various NSU Web Applications

Please note: Passwords CANNOT be a previously used password.
