CMU is committed to the pursuit of reducing the number of user ID / password combinations that our community needs to memorize. To that end, Information Technology has been researching and implementing technologies leading to a single sign-on solution. MyCmich - the CMU Portal is one such example of IT's push toward single sign-on. However, CMU users may still need several passwords to take full advantage of University network resources.
All CMU students are assigned a Campus ID. While you will use your Global ID and password to access systems across campus, your Campus ID will be your permanent unique identifier (replacing Social Security Numbers) across campus.
When and where can I Pickup my Campus ID Card?
