Obtaining An Email Account

Through the University of Miami Student Integrated System (UMSIS)

Complete the following two steps to obtain a U.M. student e-mail account. If you already have an e-mail account, go directly to step 2.

1.First, go to the web page for obtaining a User ID/E-Mail on UMSIS (https://umsis.miami.edu/sign-up/). You will be asked to supply a PIN so that you can reset your password in the event you forget it. Then you actually create your account from which you can send and receive e-mail. Once you complete the process, it will display your e-mail address. To avoid typos in Step 2 below, you can use the cursor to highlight the e-mail address and then "copy" this for a "paste" operation in Step 2. After you have obtained your UMSIS account you will be told to link to the Student EASY system or a web-based form to indicate your preferred e-mail address and other e-mail related information (step 2--see below for details).

2.The second step is to enter/update your e-mail information, which can be done on the EASY System (http://easy.miami.edu). Enter your Student Identification Number and Birth Date and click "Submit". When asked for your current preferred e-mail address, either "paste" the UMSIS address that you copied earlier or type your e-mail address into the current preferred email address field on the EASY system. The EASY system will assign a "permanent e-mail address." If you have a UMSIS account, you will probably want your e-mail to go there while you are on campus, but if you are away for the summer break you may use EASY to reset your preferred e-mail address so your e-mail is delivered to another address.



Using Your Email Account

You may access your student email from any computer with internet access. To do so:

  • Open a web browser (i.e.: Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc) and direct it to http://www.umsis.miami.edu
  • Log in with your username and password at the “Log in to UMSIS” screen on the upper left hand side of that page.


Using Your Email Account

Other Important Email Information:

  • Reset your UMSIS password:http://umsis.miami.edu/it/resetpwd_1.html
  • UMSIS Technical Support and FAQ: http://umsis.miami.edu/help/
  • Read the Beginner’s Guide to UMSIS:http://umsis.miami.edu/docs/umsis_guide.html
  • Access student e-mail directory:http://www.miami.edu/directories
  • Download Central: http://www.miami.edu/download

CINAHL/OVID & Blackboard

Don’t forget to…


You no longer need to obtain a username and password for the CINAHL/OVID databases. To access them, simply go to the following website: http://www.library.miami.edu/research/59.html
