When you login to My Missouri State using your BearPass Login and Password, you are also connected to your payroll, benefit, leave, grade, enrollment, etc. information. For your protection, it is essential that you log out of My Missouri State whenever you leave your computer so that your personal information and access to University resources is not exposed. Note that if you are an Approver of time and/or leave reports or have budgetary access, you likewise have a responsibility to protect other people's information by logging out of the portal when leaving your computer.

Tabs and modules found in the portal

When you log in to My Missouri State, you will see information that is relevant to your role at Missouri State University. That is, faculty and staff see different information than students see. Users who have multiple roles will see all tabs for all roles held. For example, student employees will see both student resources as well as some faculty/staff resources. Faculty and staff who are taking classes will also see student resources. The portal is divided into tabs, and each tab is divided into channels, many of which can be customized to fit your needs.
