Changes to the way you log on are coming soon
01 June 2012
We are changing the way you log on to Apply Online and MyStudyLink. From the end of June 2012 StudyLink will be using igovt as its logon service.
The igovt logon service allows you to use the same logon across other agencies that are part of the igovt programme, and saves you from having to remember multiple usernames and passwords.
To access StudyLink’s online services from the end of June you’ll need to have an igovt logon.
What is an igovt logon?
igovt logon is a service that helps you verify your identity to government service providers securely via the internet through the use of a username and password.
What are the benefits of using an igovt logon?
- Using the igovt logon service means you will no longer need to use a passphrase when logging in.
- If you forget your logon details you can reset your own details by using the “Forgot your username” and “Forgot your password” links, which will send a reminder email to you.
- You will no longer need to contact StudyLink regarding resetting usernames, passwords and passphrases.
How do I get or create an igovt logon?
Once StudyLink starts using the igovt logon service in June, all students will create an igovt logon when they apply online or when they log on to MyStudyLink.
If you already have a StudyLink logon you will still need to create an igovt logon and then link this to your StudyLink details by entering your StudyLink username and password. Once we have linked these details, you will then use your igovt logon to access StudyLink’s online services.
Once you have an igovt logon, the next time you apply online or log on to MyStudyLink you will need to use your igovt logon.
The igovt logon service is managed by the Department of Internal Affairs. For more information about the igovt logon service visit www.i.govt.nz
