Northwest Missouri State University


Username/Password Info

Every student, faculty or staff member at Northwest is automatically given a Northwest network username, an email account and personal file storage space. Students have 10 Gig of email storage and 7 Gig of SkyDrive file storage.  Faculty and staff have 300 Meg of email storage and 600 Meg of local network file storage.

Students who are pre-registered will typically obtain usernames and passwords during their orientation. However, students can also obtain their usernames and passwords from the Personal Information section of their CatPAWS account or from the Administrative Computing office in the Administration building. Creation of new accounts takes at least 1 business day after course enrollment has been completed.

Students, faculty and staff who are having trouble logging into their account with their password should contact the Information Technology-Client Computing Help Desk at 660.562.1634.
