Access.SMU is the information system SMU students use for many basic functions involving financial aid, student financial services, course enrollment, and the Registrar. In other words, Access.SMU will become your primary vehicle – and in some cases the only vehicle – for many of the functions listed below.
To use Access.SMU, you will need your SMU ID number and an official password. You will receive this password in the mail and will be able to view financial aid packages on Access.SMU before orientation. However, you are free to use the Access.SMU tutorial without a password so as to familiarize yourself with the system.
