How to Login to SharePoint

Before You Begin

  • Confirm that you are using Internet Explorer. Contrary to popular belief Sharepoint does not work with Firefox or Chrome.

  • Confirm you have Internet Explorer 9 installed (Help > About IE). If you are using IE8 or lower, please install IE9.

Step 1:

  • Go to the Login page then enter:

    • username = jsmith (your Babson username)
    • password = [your network password]
