How to put myZou to work for you

Thursday, July 25, 2013 | 6:00 a.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — MyZou is your online resource for keeping track of academic and financial information. 

It's a useful tool, but can be overwhelming to navigate. The following information will help you get to it in the fastest way possible.

Information available on the site

  • Class schedule
  • Course history
  • Financial account summary
  • Financial aid awards
  • Official grades
  • Personal information 

Important myZou processes

  •  Accept/decline financial aid

  • Plan and register for classes
  • Pay bills

Your student center explained

For an overview of all this information, select "Student Center" under the self-service menu after logging into myZou using your pawprint and university password.

Your student center is divided into three categories:

  • Academic – Review class schedule
  • Finances – See financial account summary
  • Personal – Check contact information

Each category includes links to the information you need elsewhere on the website. 

Speeding up the process

While your student center is a valuable central resource, you can eliminate extra page views by using the self-service menu to go directly to the link you desire. For example, to pay your bill, go to "Self-Service" and select "Make a Payment" under "Campus Finances."

When prompted, click "Continue" to go directly to the myZou Payment Center.

Make this process even faster by adding the page as a favorite. To favorite a page, click "Add to Favorites" on the yellow bar in the top righthand corner.

It will then appear under "Favorites" on the gray bar.
