myZou for first-time users
myZou is MU's online registration system. You can use it for a variety of things, from checking course availability and registering for classes to updating your personal information online.
First time login
- Go to myzou.missouri.edu.
- Login using your PawPrint and password.
- A link called E-consent* will appear on the left column; click on E-consent*, read the terms and click on Accept. Accepting the terms of E-consent will enable you to use the online myZou system to register for courses, make changes to your schedule, as well as, view your schedule, student account and financial aid. You will also have the ability to communicate via e-mail and the Internet with the Office of the University Registrar, Cashiers, Financial Aid and other campus student services offices regarding your student information.
- Logout of myZou, and login again to start the registration process.
Additional myZou terms
- Drop a class to remove a class from your schedule. This link is an option on the student center page just below add a class.
- Permissions are necessary when restrictions are placed on courses. There are two reasons why a permission number may be needed for a course:
- When a class is full, permission is needed to override the course capacity if the instructor or department allows additional students to enroll in the class.
- If a department or instructor wishes to monitor who enrolls in a class, they may require that students contact them for consent to enroll in the class.
- Wish list allows you to select possible courses before you are eligible to register. You can create a wish list of courses you would like to take using this function. Once you are eligible to register, you can select the courses to add to your official schedule.
