General Information

myLSU ID 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. For example, the myLSU ID is used by students 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
