Information Technology & Services (ITS)
Information Technology and Services (ITS) is responsible for all computer-related technology resources at ATSU and provides students, faculty, and staff a broad range of both electronic and individual services.
ATSU Student Account
Approximately ten days after you paid your acceptance fee you should have received an email from the ITS Help Desk with your personal login information to the ATSU portal, which is the access point to ATSU’s electronic resources. If you have not received this information, please contact the ATSU Help Desk by calling 866.626.2878, ext. 2200, or sending an email.
One popular tool that will be available through the portal is the online forum, which gives you a chance to electronically meet and get acquainted with some of your future classmates. To initiate discussion on the forum, we encourage each student to post some general introductory information (i.e. Where are you from? What undergraduate institution did you attend? What are you looking for in medical school?, etc.).
