myLSU Account: LSU Overview

General Information

A myLSU account is an account with a username and a password given to LSU Faculty, Students and Staff by the university to access LSU's Online Resources. This will be that same ID that you will use to login to Moodle, which is where all information from your classes will be posted. (If you are an instructor this is where you will post course material and grades.)  

A typical myLSU ID is something like this:  mtiger1 

LSU Students

Student myLSU ID's are automatically created when an application for admission is submitted and the fee is paid in full.  Applicants will receive their myLSU account information via e-mail to the address provide on the application form.

  • Applicants who do not register for classes for the semester will have their myLSU Account PURGED.
  • Students who miss three consecutive semesters of enrollment will have their myLSU Account PURGED.

LSU Faculty & Staff

Faculty & Staff myLSU accounts are created by their departmental Human Resource Administrator using the HRS Account Creation Utility.

  • When an employee separates from the university, they receive a 30-day warning prior to purging. These accounts are suspended from everything except for their primary myLSU account. 
  • After another 30 days, everything except the primary myLSU account will be purged.
  • Employees will still be able to view their W-2, parking tickets and other fees. The employee's primary myLSU account will be active for one full calendar year after the last payroll activity.
