How to Reactivate Your Alumni Account

Sometimes students who have graduated, are returning for more undergraduate or graduate course work, or have not attended the university for a year are missing the necessary account to access all parts of My Missouri State. My Missouri State can be accessed with your BearPass Account, but it is different than your Windows Account. The first thing to try is to change your password to make sure that is not the problem. The main parts of My Missouri State that need to be accessed with your SGF Windows account are Enrollment Agreements and Course Registration. If you cannot access these areas, you simply need to request your Windows Account-Springfield or SGF account by following the steps below.

Some Alumni returning to Missouri State University have created and used a BearPass Account in the past but stopped attending Missouri State University for a period of time. This page will assist in getting alumni access to their accounts again. As a general rule, anyone who attended after Fall 2008 should already have a BearPass Account.
