Fairleigh Dickinson University offers a variety of technological resources and services for students. This guide will help students navigate the different tools to access and manage their accounts or information.

ID and Email

  • Your FDU NetID verifies who you are and ensures the privacy of your personal information. Your FDU NetID and your NetID password will provide access to a variety of IT resources including your Self-Service, WebCampus, Office365, and Email. To get your NetID, review the guide on how to Claim or Create an FDU NetID Account.

  • To protect the University and our students from cyber attacks and other malicious activity, we require that everyone in our community to periodically change their password. To change your password, review the guide on How To Change Your FDU NetID Password.

  • To successfully use your NetID to access your accounts, you will need Two-Factor Authentication with Cisco DUO MFA

    Two-factor authentication adds a second layer of security to your FDU NetID. It requires two factors to verify identity. These factors include something you know – your FDU NetID and password, and something you have – a phone or passcode, to authenticate and gain access to your account on FDU services. Passwords alone no longer provide adequate protection against cyber hacking. DUO is required for all current FDU students.

    Review the Duo – Student Quick Start Guide to set up your mobile device with Cisco DUO MFA, and look at the Cisco Duo FAQ’s to get more information about Cisco DUO MFA.

  • Students can access their emails through any Web browser using their NetID and password to log in. To access our email, visit the Office Portal Login.

    Students can also access their FDU Email accounts on their mobile devices by installing the Outlook app. Read the guide below:

    Current students who are registered for classes for the current term, or a future term have access to Microsoft Office 365 Suite applications. For more information, click on the links below:

Academic Systems

  • Webcampus is a course content management system. FDU’s Webcampus is also known as the Blackboard System. On-line courses are taught through this system which also allows for interaction between the student and faculty member as well as on-line class discussions.

    To learn more about how to access Webcampus, read the guide on How to log in to Webcampus.


  • Self-Service is an interactive web application that enables students to view their individual information contained in FDU’s Student Information System. Students can use Self-Service to do things like view their financial aid, pay their bills, and register for classes.

    To learn more about how to use Self-Service, review the Self-Service Tutorial.
