The Account Management Service is designed to help University of Missouri students, faculty, staff, and guests create and manage their computing accounts and passwords. Your account with the University of Missouri is called your Username (also referred to as a Single Sign-On or SSO ID) and is the primary form of authentication to access most MU technology resources. You are assigned a username when you enroll as a student or begin employment with the University.
All University faculty, staff, and students are provided with a username. Your username is used for most University resources. New usernames are created with the individual’s initials and three random characters to ensure its uniqueness.
Account access to most University resources will expire once you no longer meet the University's eligibility requirements. See the Availability tab for eligibility requirements.
Properly managing your account is one of the most basic security measures you can take. Learn more about changing or resetting your password.
There are no fees associated with this service.
