New log on service
31 July 2012
StudyLink is now using igovt as its logon service for MyStudyLink and Apply Online. If you already have a StudyLink account go to MyStudyLink to set up your igovt logon.
What is an igovt logon?
An igovt logon is a service that allows you to use the same logon details to access government service providers securely via the internet through the use of a username and password. 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 you’ll need to have an igovt logon.
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 in the igovt log on screen, 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?
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
If you already have a StudyLink logon you will still need to create an igovt logon in MyStudyLink (or if you need to apply for a new period of study in Apply Online). You will then link 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.
Linking your details is a one-off event and is part of the process when you create an igovt logon for StudyLink when you use either MyStudyLink or apply online. The quickest way to link your details is to log into MyStudyLink.
Watch the video below on linking your details using MyStudyLink.
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
