Accounts and Email

Accounts and EmailUsername/ UserID
Each UMKC student receives a UserID account name, which provides access to Canvas, Pathway, computer labs, wireless, and many other resources.


As a student you have access to a myriad of online services using your UserID and password. Your UserID and password are used for Canvas, e-mail, and many other services. This is where you can find more information regarding resetting passwords, what to do if you forget your password, or need help setting up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).


Student Email
All official university communications are sent to your Microsoft Office365 student email account. Students are strongly encouraged to check their UMKC email regularly for important announcements and information. You can access your email account from any web browser and email programs, such as Microsoft Outlook.
