Accounts/ OT Service Catalog

All students and employees of the 无码专区 community are provided an account. This account allows our 无码专区 community to have access to log into their devices, the MyCentral portal, email account, Blackboard, Office365 and other services.

 

Employee Accounts

 

The process for employee account creation and access termination is automated to make the process more effective and efficient, better meeting the needs of the 无码专区 community.

How are employee accounts created?

Account creation at 无码专区 is generated by input from Human Resources into Banner based on when the employee鈥檚 status as an active employee begins. After an account is created, email notifications are generated and sent to Human Resources, the employee鈥檚 personal email on file, the supervisor of the employee and/or the budget manager of the organization. The email will include the employee's credentials (Network ID and email address). If you receive an email for a new employee that does not report to you or your department, please contact Human Resources.

What access is provided with an employee account?

Full time employees will automatically receive access to 无码专区 core services of Network ID (NID), email, MyCentral, Blackboard Learn (does not include course assignments), and personal and departmental drive share permissions based on the organization in which the employee is paid.

How do I request additional employee access?

In the event an employee needs additional accesses and permissions other than those listed, a request will need to be submitted via the

How is an employee account access terminated?

Termination of access is based on the job end date or termination in Banner. Access and permissions will be removed from an individual's account when that individual separates from 无码专区 or at the end of the position assignment (Emeriti and retirees in good standing excluded). Access to MyCentral will continue after separation for a period of seven years.

To ensure timely processing of accounts for departing employees, please notify Human Resources if an employee leaves prior to their expected job end to have an account disabled or accesses removed on the appropriate date (i.e. student workers, temporary workers, etc.).

How do I remove access from an employee when they transfer to a new department?

If an employee (full or part time, student, temporary, GA) transfers to a new department on campus, you will need to to remove access to their previous department.

How do I request account access for a contractor or vendor?

For a contracted, non-instructional, non-无码专区 employee, please visit our to request access. A list of what is needed for this type of account is listed under 鈥淎dd a New External Affiliate (XA) Account鈥.

For a contracted, instructional, non-无码专区 employee, please contact the Office of Human Resources.

How do I request renewal of an employee account?

It is not necessary to request account creation or renewal for any type of employee to include student, graduate assistant, temporary, part time or full time. If an employee is returning to 无码专区 after having been separated for a time, it is not necessary to submit an account renewal request for that employee.

 

Student Accounts

 

How are student accounts created?

Student accounts are created after application and admission to University of Central Missouri.

Upon admittance to 无码专区, students will receive an email in their personal account that includes their Banner ID ( also called a 7#) and their Network ID (NID). Upon admission and issuance of an NID, students will be able to log into , the university portal.

Once a student is enrolled in classes, they will be notified in their personal email account of their 无码专区 email address along with instructions about how to access it. It鈥檚 important for students to use their 无码专区 email address as all future correspondence will be sent to it.

What access is provided with a student account?

Student accounts will receive a Network ID (NID), Email (Google Workspace), MyCentral, Blackboard Learn, and Office365.

How is student account access terminated?

Domestic student email accounts are deleted after three semesters of non-enrollment.  International student email accounts are deleted after five years of non-enrollment.

Windows 11 for 无码专区 Computers

The Office of Technology is continuing efforts to transition 无码专区 systems running the Windows 10 operating systems to Windows 11. Analyzing the readiness of existing devices for Windows 11 relies solely on the hardware specifications. Once the analysis is conducted, the determination is made whether a device can either be upgraded to Windows 11 or must be replaced. The evaluations are essentially a 鈥減ass / fail鈥 exercise. If the device meets the hardware specifications for Windows 11, the device can be upgraded to the Windows 11 operating system. If the device does not meet the hardware specifications for Windows 11, then the device must be replaced before October 2025.

Current experiences with devices being upgraded to and running Windows 11 are positive. New systems purchased have the Windows 11 operating system installed. The Office of Technology is now offering Windows 11 to those devices that have passed the hardware specifications test. On the system taskbar, you will see the Fighting Mule Head icon, and if the Fighting Mule Head icon is not present, then left click on the 鈥>鈥 or 鈥淾鈥 symbol, which will display the Fighting Mule Head icon. Left click on the Fighting Mule Head icon to open the 鈥溛蘼胱ㄇ Self Service鈥 application. Left click on the 鈥淐atalog鈥 tab to see the offer to upgrade your system to Windows 11.

Please know that the Windows 11 upgrade will take some time to complete. The duration of the Windows 11 upgrade is dependent on several factors pertaining to the device characteristics and configuration. Therefore, the Office of Technology recommends that you accept and start the Windows 11 operating system update at the end of the workday. You will need to leave your device powered on, which means laptops should be docked and connected to the power supply. The device will automatically update and restart when the update is finished.

The Office of Technology also suggests that everyone in the same immediate office area should not execute the Windows 11 upgrade process at the same time. While the Office of Technology does not anticipate any significant issues, we all know that application upgrades from time to time can create challenges. In addition, the Office of Technology acknowledges that challenges may exist in some areas especially where older software applications and printers are installed. Therefore, the Office of Technology recommends that one or two individuals in each respective area conduct the upgrade to ensure the desired outcome is achieved. If the Windows 11 upgrade on the first few machines goes without incident, then proceed with the upgrade on the other systems in the office.

If you have any questions about upgrading to Windows 11 or your encounter any issues with the Windows 11 upgrade process, please call the Technology Support Center at 660-543-4357. You can also email the Technology Support center at tsc@ucmo.edu. Thank you.

Multifactor Authentication- MFA

Multi-factor authentication provides a second layer of security to any type of login, requiring extra information or a physical device to log in, in addition to your password.  Multi-factor authentication can also be called Two-Factor authentication or 2FA.

Multi-factor authentication enhances the security of your account by using a secondary device to verify your identity. This prevents anyone but you from accessing your account, even if they know your password. 

 

To learn more about MFA, please visit our

Policies / Procedures

Office 365

Microsoft Office has changed both in how it is licensed to 无码专区, as well as how it is delivered to the end user. It is now available as a web browser based application, just like Google Docs, as well as the old, more traditional locally installed version (this version is referred to as Office 365 Pro Plus). All employee groups are entitled to the online, web based version (Office 365). Some are also entitled to the locally installed version, Office 365 Pro Plus. Please see the entitlement details below.

Office 365 online:

Under the current license, the following groups are entitled to use Office 365 Online: Full time faculty, full time staff, students, student workers, adjuncts, graduate assistants, bargaining unit, and temporary staff.

Office 365 Pro Plus:

In addition to Office 365 online, if you are full time faculty, full time staff, or a student, 无码专区鈥檚 Office 365 agreement provides an additional entitlement to download the Pro Plus version of office products. This is the traditional version which is installed locally on 无码专区 devices. The main difference is that this version now requires occasional authentication with Microsoft for continued use. Again, this version includes the desktop applications that can be used without a constant internet connection and are accessed via desktop icons. Pro Plus licensed individuals can use Office 365 Pro Plus on up to five devices (desktop, laptop, tablet, and/or phone), whether owned by 无码专区 or not.
