START USING YOUR MORGAN USERNAME & PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY
To log on to University Systems, you will use your MSU login credentials, your username and password.  These provide you access to Email, WebSIS, Canvas, Starfish, and Morgan's Wireless Network.  

   Students: Your username (which was included in your acceptance letter) never changes, whereas your password expires every 180 days.
   Employees: Your username (which was provided to you during the hiring process) never changes, whereas your password expires every 90 days.

Students who are also employed at the university have a separate employee Morgan Network account. The username format will be firstname.lastname (first name + period + last name). You will need to conduct any university business related to your job with your Morgan employee account.

 
DETERMINE YOUR INITIAL MORGAN 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 8-digit Student/Employee ID number.  See the chart below for examples.

Your initial password must be changed using the password management tool


ENROLL IN THE PASSWORD MANAGEMENT TOOL
After you successfully log onto the Morgan Network using your initial password, you must create a new password using the instructions at https://mypassword.morgan.edu.  From that site, you'll be asked to provide a mobile phone, set up challenge questions, and provide a non-Morgan email address.  These will be used to verify your identity when you subsequently manage your password.
  Your password expires every 90/180 days, but you can change it anytime before it expires. 


GET HELP WITH YOUR MORGAN ACCOUNT
If you experience trouble logging into your Morgan Account and you've already enrolled in the password management tool, visit https://mypassword.morgan.edu and follow the on-screen instructions. 

If you have trouble enrolling in the password management tool, contact the Service Desk (443.885.4357 or ServiceDesk@morgan.edu).  You will need your username and 8-digit student/employee ID number to get assistance from the Service Desk.  If you don't know your ID number, contact the appropriate department - undergraduate students (Registrar's Office), graduate students (School of Graduate Studies), and employees (HR).
