How do I set my Official MSU email?

To do this follow the process below:
1)           Go to MyInfo, click on Enter Secure Area, and log in using your Student/faculty/staff ID (GID) or SSN and PIN.
The MyInfo link is found on just about every main MSU web page, including the MSU home page at the bottom:
MSU Footer
…and in the upper left of the faculty/staff and students pages. There it is labeled “My Info & Registration”.

Your MyInfo User ID  is your employee or student Banner number (eight digits preceded by a minus sign), and your password depends on whether  you have already used it and/or changed it. The login page has more info about this.
2)            Click on the Personal Information link. It looks like:
                                Personal Information
                                View your address(es), phone number(s), e-mail address(es); Change your PIN.
3)            From the Personal information screen, click on Update E-mail Address(es)
4)            Under “University Recognized (OFFICIAL) E-mail Address”, select Edit.
5)            Enter your official email address, re-enter to confirm it, and select Save.
6)            Log out of My Info.
                This information is updated on the directory server every two hours.


 

How can I find out my NetID?
