Student Computing Account

Creation of a student account means that the student is aware of and accepts MTSU's published policies and procedures, including:

Your addresses:

  • E-mail: username @mtmail.mtsu.edu

Save Time On Passwords (STOP)

When activating your computing account, you will be prompted to create a password. If the password you create fails the verification procedure, you will have to start over. The verification procedure is in place as a security measure.

STOP and check your password for the following:

  • At least eight (8) characters
  • At least one letter AND one number AND one uppercase letter ( Note: Your password will be case-sensitive)
  • Does not contain any pattern found in your username (Example: username itd5d can't use t5d12345 as a password)
  • Does not contain any pattern found in the dictionary
  • Does not contain any repeating characters or character groupings

How it works:

  1. You have to be currently admitted or admitted on probation to MTSU to use a student computing account on the academic server, "frank."
  2. You must activate your account before you can use either e-mail or web space services
  3. ITD's Information Technology Handbook for Students for more information

Activating your account:

To activate the account, go to http://www.mtsu.edu/passwords.php, click on the link for a computing account and enter the requested information. The username and password you receive will be required to access frank, e-mail, and other computer-related tools.
