Whether you are a current or prospective student, this is your home base for information about every one of the four world-class campuses that form the foundation of Missouri Online. Learn more about the future-transforming experience you can expect at the campus that fits you best. Select a university above to get started.


When you visit Mizzou’s student information system, myZou, you’ll get information about:

  • Your academic advisor
  • Course details
  • Registration schedule
  • Enrollment
  • Adding and dropping
  • Grades and your unofficial academic record

Not only can you find course and academic information on myZou, but you also can stay on top of money matters. These include online payment options, your payment history, billing statements and financial aid information.

Note: Nondegree-seeking students can find the same information, but will not be assigned an academic advisor.

What you need to begin

If you are a newly admitted or readmitted student, you will receive an email to the personal email address you provided Mizzou. This email will contain the necessary information for activating your myZou account, and it will come from one of three sources:

  • The Admissions office (degree-seeking undergraduate students)
  • The Graduate School (degree-seeking graduate students or post-baccalaureate students)
  • Missouri Online (nondegree-seeking undergraduate students)

This email will contain your User ID, which you will use to access myZou, create a password and activate your account.

Submitting your e-Consent

Before you can make the most of myZou, you will need to agree to an e-Consent. After setting up your password, log back into myZou with your User ID and password, and click on “UM e-Consent.” Then answer the question related to financial correspondence. After answering the question, you will be directed to the myZou login page.

Note: We highly recommend all distance students agree to the e-Consent. If you disagree, all correspondence about your finances will have to be sent via postal mail. 

Tour the myZou interface

The myZou interface features several panels that group together the tasks and information you need the most:

  • Academics: Grades, enrollment, course schedule.
  • Finances: Financial aid and bills.
  • Personal information: Your current contact information, which should be up to date.
  • Holds: Any holds on your account.
  • To-do list: Items you need to complete.
  • Enrollment dates: Your appointment time for enrollment if you are not currently enrolling and one has been assigned. Click the link to see your specific enrollment time.
  • Advisor: Your current advisor and their contact information.

Registering for courses

Once you’re familiar with myZou, you’ll return here to sign up for courses. 

Know how our course formats work

Before you begin, make sure you fully understand the difference between the semester-based and self-paced courses offered to online students.

Your academic goal may determine which type of online course you take.

Check your enrollment time

Students who were enrolled in the prior term will be able to enroll for course work during the early registration period, subject to their assigned appointment time. Newly admitted students will have later appointment times.

In all cases, you can find your assigned appointment time in the myZou Student Center under "Enrollment Dates."

Note: If there is a problem with your enrollment, you will see an error text under the Message column that will give more details. 

Revisit myZou on a regular basis

myZou brings together information from various sources, including enrollment and financial aid. We recommend that you go to myZou frequently, not just when you need to enroll in a course. This way, you can make sure your information is accurate and that you don’t have any outstanding items on your to-do list.
