In order to access University resources, you will need a BearPass Login and Password.  Creating an account gives you a BearPass Login and Password, which allow you to log in to My Missouri State. From here, you can access your email, Blackboard, student account, and a variety of other services. To create an account, you will need your BearPass Number and Confirmation Code. If you do not know your BearPass Number, visit How to Get Your BearPass Number. If you do not know your Confirmation Code, visit How to Get Your Confirmation Code.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Go to CAMS (Computer Account Management System).
  2. From the menu on the left, click Get an Account and then click Next.

    If you have your Confirmation Code and your BearPass Number, click Next and skip to step 6 in this Guide.
  3. If you do not have your Confirmation Code, click the Confirmation Code link under the What You Will Need header.

  4. Enter your BearPass Number (M########) and your Last Name. Then click Go.

    1. The email address on file will be displayed, partially obscured for security reasons. You can choose Send Email to have your Confirmation Code emailed to this address, or you can select Use Alternate to use a different email than what Missouri State shows is on file.

    2. If you chose to send the Confirmation Code to the email address on file, you will see a confirmation message.
      Check your email for the Confirmation Code and instructions to follow from there.

    3. If you chose to enter an alternate email address, you will be prompted to enter it, then click Go.

    4. You will be prompted to enter information so that we can verify your identity. Remember, this information may have to be verified manually and can take up to two days to be verified.
      You will receive an email with your confirmation code once it has been verified. Once you have entered you information, click Go.

    5. After you have you confirmation code go back to CAMS and click Get an Account. From the main Get an Account screen, click Next.

      Please check your spam and clutter folders in your e-mail if you do not receive the confirmation code in your inbox.

  5. Enter your BearPass Number (M########) and click Next.

  6. Enter your Confirmation Code and click Verify and Continue.

  7. Select your Security Questions and enter answers. You will need to answer at least four of the questions. If you ever forget your password and need to change it, you may be prompted to answer one of these questions. Therefore, you should only answer questions that you think someone else would be unable to answer about you. When you are finished, click Next.

  8. Choose your BearPass Login. This is what you will use to log into your My Missouri State account for all of your educational needs at Missouri State. It is also what you will use to log into our computers on campus.

  9. Create your BearPass Email. When creating your email you will select one of the radio buttons next to either your first or last name and then enter a series of numbers to place after your name in the Email Suffix box. Then click Next.

  10. Create a password that meets the requirements listed on the screen.  A full list of requirements can be found on the Password Complexity Requirements page. Type your password a second time to confirm and then click Confirm.

Congratulations! You have successfully set up your BearPass Login and email address.
