Welcome to Northern Kentucky University!

Once your new-hire paperwork has been processed by the HR office and you have your NKU All Card, visit the Password Change website to set your password.  You will then be able to log into myNKU to access the Employee Self-Service tab, where you will view your pay statement and leave time balance, select your employee benefits, update your personal information, and more.

Depending on your job functions, you may also use myNKU for other financial, human resources, student life cycle management, or reporting tasks such as creating or approving purchase requisitions, entering time worked, viewing student records, generating informational reports, etc.  Training is offered through the Center for Innovation and Technology in Education (CITE)  for many of these functions, and you can also find help and reference materials for them on this site.

Some access to myNKU is provided automatically based on your job - for example, all employees receive access to the Employee Self-Service tab, and faculty are automatically granted access to Student Administration / Faculty Services. If you need access to additional tabs or functions in the myNKU system, review this document describing the different types of access and how to request them.


For assistance with myNKU, please call the IT Help Desk at 859-572-6911, or using the other methods found on the Need Help page of the IT website.
