Welcome letter

Students enrolling in semester-based classes will receive an email beginning approximately one month prior to the start date of the class. This letter will include all of the courses students are registered and provide an overall timeline for Mizzou Online correspondence. Students enrolling in self-paced courses will receive an enrollment verification one business day after enrolling.

PawPrint and Mizzou email account letter

Beginning approximately one month prior to the course start date for semester-based courses, new students will receive detailed instructions on setting up their student account. Students enrolling in self-paced courses will also receive those instructions.

Blackboard demo course

Mizzou Online will begin emailing demo instructions approximately one month prior to the course start date for those enrolled in Blackboard semester-based courses. The demo course helps students become familiar with the course delivery format.

Course access

Approximately one week before the semester-based course start date, students will be provided instructions on accessing their online course sites. The login site for Blackboard is http://courses.missouri.edu. Students enrolling in self-paced courses will receive information on accessing their course site one business day after enrolling.

New students will receive the Welcome, PawPrint and Demo course information to their personal email account. The Course Access information will be sent ONLY to a Mizzou account.

Note: Students who enroll in a semester-based course the week prior to the start date of a course may experience delays in accessing their online courses. It generally takes up to 48 hours for the MU system to generate a PawPrint account. We highly recommended that all NEW students enroll at least two weeks prior to the start of the course.
