After completing each module, select the Take Test link.  There is a minimum score you must achieve before access to MyView will be granted. 

For Faculty: After successful completion of the final exam, your MyView access will be automatically established within 24 hours.  For issues, please contact Kathy Miguel at miguelk@umsl.edu, or Danielle Faucett at faucettd@umsl.edu.

For Non-Faculty: If your position requires you to access student records via MyView, you will need to submit a request for security to Mary Tackett at tackettm@umsl.edu. Please include the following information when submitting your request:

  • Full Name
  • SSO ID
  • Employee ID Number
  • Academic Org or Department
  • Type of access needed (i.e. view student name, address, rosters, etc.) Please be specific.  If there is another team member whose access yours should mimic, please identify.
  • You will need the department director's approval.  Please have them email Mary Tackett.
  • If you need access to one of the following, please contact the individuals below for that access
    • Admissions - Jaime Lincoln
    • Financial Aid - Samantha Matchefts
    • Student Financials (Cashiers) - Mitch Hess

 For Student Interns or Assistants: If you have a student intern or student assistant in your department that does not have an active HR appointment, but is still working with student records, please make sure they complete a FERPA tutorial. Please have the supervisor contact Danielle Faucett, faucettd@umsl.edu, or Mary Tackett, tackettm@umsl.edu, to request the link/access to the tutorial for the student. A score of 80% or higher is considered passing.
