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:
Login to Computer Learning Center Icon indicated a new window/tab will be opened by pressing link (CLC) machinesHelp Desk TicketVPN connectionsSecure File Transfer Protocol accessJoe'SS Icon indicated a new window/tab will be opened by pressing link (registering for classes, paying university bills, etc.)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.
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.
