Quicklaunch - First Time Account Setup

New users gain access to their accounts through QuickLaunch.

If you’re a new user, click the “First Time User” link, located below the green Login button:


Next, you’ll be prompted for your mySFA username. Enter your username, then click the Next button to continue.

You’ll receive additional prompts requesting your last name and your Campus ID number. Complete both prompts, clicking the Submit button after entering your ID number.

If the information was entered correctly, you’ll see a variation of the screen below. Click the arrow next to the listed contact method to continue.

A verification code will be sent to the option you chose. Enter this code in the provided text box and click the Submit button.

To see the number you typed, click the eyeball button to the right.


Once the code is accepted, you’ll be prompted to create a new password and confirm it by retyping. Once again you can click the eyeball icons to see the passwords before clicking Submit.

Note: Password requirements can be viewed by hovering the mouse pointer over the “i” (or “information”) icon.

If the password was changed successfully, you’ll get a short confirmation message before being redirected to the main login prompt again.

If this doesn’t occur, or you get an error message, or if you experience any issues that prevent you from changing your password, please contact the Help Desk at (936) 468-4357 for additional assistance.
