SacLink Accounts

A SacLink account is your electronic identity on campus. Every student, faculty, and staff are automatically eligible for a SacLink account. Your SacLink account allows you to access your desktop computer, campus computer labs, wireless networks, personal web pages, library databases, My Sac State, SacCT, Print Smart, and other services. When you create your SacLink account you receive a SacLink username.

Student applicants and new faculty and staff must create their SacLink account to receive a SacLink username and email account. Creating your SacLink account is easy. Go to, enter the required information, and click the "Verify your Identity" button. The next page requires you to select a password, answer personal security questions and agree to the terms and conditions. If you forget your password, you can answer the personal questions to change anytime 24/7. Upon successful completion of this process a screen will appear that will tell you your SacLink Username and email address. You may want to write it down until it is memorized.
