Activating an S&T email account

How to setup your account with the SecureAuth tool

New Student Account Setup 

After applying for admission, information was sent to the email address used when applying for admission with the subject line "Missouri University of Science and Technology Username." This email includes the username for the S&T student account: the student’s initials followed by three random characters (e.g. Sarah M. Johnson’s username may look like smj6zf). 

To set up an S&T Joe'SS account: 

  1. Open a web browser and navigate to Joe'SS (joess.mst.edu).
  2. Click the ‘Create Your Password link on the left side of the page.
  3. Enter the student username in the field provided, and click ‘Submit.’
  4. On the following page, select a method, either your personal phone number or email, to receive the passcode for the user setup (If no email or password is listed, please contact the S&T IT Help Desk at 573-341-4357). Click ‘Submit.’
  5. Once the passcode has been received, enter the six-digit code and click ‘Submit.’
  6. Fill out the required fields for the New User Setup: phone, external email, and knowledge based questions. An email from donotreply@umsystem.edu will be sent to the email listed confirming the account registration.
  7. Once user setup is complete, continue to New User Password Setup. Generate a new temporary passcode to access the password setup page, and enter the code where prompted.
  8. Create a password for the account, ensuring that the password meets the criteria listed on the page (Password must be at least 7 characters long, and contain at least three of the four categories: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols [e.g. !, @, #, $, %, *]).
  9. After the password has been set, an informational FAQ page on the University of Missouri System’s Two-Factor Authentication process will open. Review the information if desired.
  10. Return to joess.mst.edu. Log in with the student account username and the newly-created password.
  11. Once successfully signed in, click the ‘UM E-Consent’ link in the menu on the left side of the page. Review the agreement. Once the terms have been accepted, academic and financial information will become available electronically through Joe’SS. 

Information available through Joe'SS includes: 

  • Application and admission status tracking
  • S&T email account setup
  • Scholarship applications
  • Transfer credit reports
  • Campus housing priority
  • (Freshmen Only) Signup for a Preview, Registration, and Orientation (PRO) session 

After arrival to S&T, usernames will also be used to: 

  • Log into Missouri S&T lab computers
  • Access university email to receive important school updates and teacher correspondence
  • Access Canvas (S&T’s learning management system, where course content is stored) 

Activating an S&T email account 

Once access to Joe’SS has been set up, visit the S&T IT email setup page and follow the steps on the page to activate the Google Apps portion of the student account. 

Please visit gmail.com afterward and sign in with <username>@mst.edu to ensure that the email account was successfully activated.
