Have you just joined CSULB (California State University Long Beach) as an employee or student? If yes, then you need to get and activate your MyCSULB account to access campus systems like Employee Center and the MyCSULB student center.
Here, I will explain how CSULB employees and students can sign in to MyCSULB account step by step.
What is MyCSULB?
MyCSULB is an online login portal and the central location for employees and students of California State University Long Beach to access personal information. Accessing the MyCSULB Student Center, students can view information such as class schedule, GPA, announcements, grades, pay fees, and even manage their profile. Whereas MyCSULB Employee Center allows employees to check Paycheck history, benefits, leave balance, Jobs (eApplications), etc.
Recently the University has integrated Single Sign-On (SSO) feature into its CSULB login portal. It means now you can access multiple CSULB applications with a single set of login credentials (Beachmail and Password) from here (https://sso.csulb.edu).
Access to campus computing services and systems relies on the role (Student, Employee, Faculty) and approved access.
Previously, you had to login separately through csulb.okta.com to access each CSULB campus system like MyCSULB.
Here I will discuss all the MyCSULB Sign In options (SSO and Okta) for both staff and students.

Any MyCSULB staff and student can access their personal information either by going through MyCSULB Okta Login or by CSULB SSO Login. Check out below steps –

Now, you are ready to use your MyCSULB email and account to communicate within the campus.
