MyMSU Experience

Access your MSU online services through MyMSU.

Go to MyMSU

Upon acceptance as a student or employee at MSU, you will receive an email with your username (Eagle ID) and initial password (Eagle PASS). This username and password will give you access to your email, Blackboard, and other student and employee services at MSU. Before you can access these services, you'll need to activate your account.

Morehead State University has enabled a new feature that allows all faculty, staff, and students to reset their university passwords using Microsoft. When you log into MSU systems for the first time after this change, you will see the following prompts to enter a secondary email to help with password recovery and reset. Please do not skip this step, as it could result in you being locked out of your account.

1. “More information required” – This screen tells you that additional information is needed. Click Next to proceed.
