About Usernames

USERNAME

All Missouri S&T faculty, staff and students are assigned a Username (also called a single sign-on, or SSO).

SINGLE SIGN-ON USERNAME

The single sign-on (SSO) Username provides access to university computer resources including:

Email
Login to Computer Learning Center‌ Icon indicated a new window/tab will be opened by pressing link (CLC) machines
Help Desk Ticket
VPN connections
Secure File Transfer Protocol access
Joe'SS Icon indicated a new window/tab will be opened by pressing link (registering for classes, paying university bills, etc.)
Blackboard or Canvas Icon indicated a new window/tab will be opened by pressing link (course management system)
Other Missouri S&T resources that require authentication such as secure web pages

Because an SSO Username and password will allow access to all of these resources, IT mandates that all customers create a strong password.  

STUDENTS

For security, your Username contains random letters and/or numbers and cannot be changed to a user friendly word or name.  You can create a user friendly email alias.


For assistance please contact the IT Help Desk by calling 573-341-4357 (HELP), visiting the IT Help Desk on the first floor of the Curtis Laws Wilson Library, or submitting a ticket online at: http://help.mst.edu
