START USING YOUR MORGAN NETWORK ACCOUNT IMMEDIATELY
To log on to University Systems, you will use a set of credentials commonly referred to as your Morgan Network Account.  Your Morgan Network Account consists of a username and password which provides you access to Email, WebSIS, Blackboard, Starfish, and Morgan's Wireless Network.  Your username (which was included in your acceptance letter) never changes, whereas your password expires every 180 days.   


DETERMINE YOUR INITIAL MORGAN NETWORK ACCOUNT PASSWORD
Your initial password begins with the first letter of your first name capitalized, the first letter of your last name in lowercase, and your entire date of birth in MMDDYYYY format.  See the chart below for examples.

Your initial password must be changed using the instructions below after your first login. 


CHANGE YOUR INITIAL PASSWORD & SET UP YOUR SECURITY QUESTIONS
After you successfully log onto the Morgan Network using your initial password, you must create a new password using the instructions at http://resetmypwd.morgan.edu.  From that site, select the
"Change My Password" option to create a new password.  All passwords must contain a minimum of 8 characters, which should include at least one capital letter and at least one number.  You may not use any part of your first or last name.  Your password expires every 180 days, but you can change it anytime before the 180-day period.

Select the "My Security Questions" link to set up your personal security questions and answers. We strongly encourage you to create your security questions so you can self-manage your Morgan Network Account.
