EMAIL INSTRUCTIONS FOR NEW FACULTY AND STAFF
The 2010-2013 Morgan State University Academic Catalogs mandate that Morgan email use is required for all official, electronic University communication. Each student, faculty and staff is assigned a Morgan Network account. The username and password for the Morgan Network will provide you with access to Morgan email, Blackboard (if applicable), computers throughout campus, and the Morgan wireless network. Follow the instructions below to begin using your Morgan Network account today! Note: The username and password for your Morgan Network account will not provide you with access to WebSIS.
Requesting an Email Account
Fill in your personal information on the Email Request Form online (select Typewriter to begin), print the form with your information and obtain approver signatures. Follow the instructions on the form for submission to the HELP Desk. Once your information has been verified and your account created, you will be contacted by a HELP Desk representative who will provide you with your username and temporary password. Note: Handwritten forms will not be accepted.
