New Students
You will be mailed a password to use the My.smu.edu on-line information system but initial enrollment will be performed by Janis Jessen. The password, combined with a student’s 8 digit ID number will allow you to log on to My.smu.edu to check your registration status, look up grades (grades are no longer mailed), change your address and phone number, register for class for future terms, and to check for any holds.
