Iowa State University’s AccessPlus is a personalized, secure university information online resource that provides accessibility to confidential student information. You can register for classes and access your class schedule, order textbooks, view your university bill and financial aid information, obtain a grade report and an unofficial transcript, update your student information including address changes, etc. You can login into AccessPlus using your student ID number or Social Security number. Your password is initially set as a four-digit number based on your birth month and birth day (mm/dd). You will then be prompted to change your password.
CyMail is Iowa State University’s implementation of Google’s Gmail system. It provides email, calendaring, and other online applications to all Iowa State students. E-mail is the primary means by which both the MBA faculty and staff communicate with you outside the classroom. It is therefore important that you set up a CyMail account at the beginning of your first semester. You will need your student identification number from your ISUCard (see above). In addition to creating an e-mail account, CyMail includes access to tools to help build websites, work collaboratively on various types of documents, keep track of your appointments, and chat instantly with others online.
The ISUCard is your student identification card. Your nine-digit, student ID is the middle set of numbers on your ISUCard. You can pick up your card at the ISUCard Office located in 0530 Beardshear Hall. Special arrangements are made for Professional MBA students for obtaining their ISUCard.
Textbooks and reading packets for MBA classes can be ordered through the University Book Store by logging into AccessPlus or via the book store website.
