HSU Central provides current Hardin-Simmons students, faculty, and staff with quick and easy access to a host of services. Through HSU Central, you have single sign-on access to Email, Calendars, Blackboard, CashNet, Register for Classes, Grades, News and Events, and so much more.
- Can I access my HSU email from within HSU Central? Yes, you can get your HSU email in HSU Central. Just above the announcements section and to the left of the weather widget is a place to enter your email credentials. Entering those one time will provide a link to your HSU web mail so you will not have to log into it separately. Below is a screen shot of what this will look like once you have entered your credentials.
- Can I add items to the “My Week” and “My To Do” areas on HSU Central? These particular areas are data aggregators, so they pull data from external sources as opposed to providing a mechanism for direct entry. These areas pull data from two locations: Colleague (our Student Information System), and Exchange (our email service). Colleague is what provides the information regarding your class schedule. Exchange is where you would enter other appointment, meetings, and reminders. Your Exchange account is your HSU email account. You will notice when you go to your HSU webmail that there is a calendar feature on it. If you enter events into that calendar, those dates will show up in My Week. The same is true for the My To Do area. If you enter a “task” in your HSU webmail, then it will show up in your My To Do on HSU Central.
