Every student, employee, and board member has an Access Southern account; it's your online identity from the time you register or arrive on campus. You may maintain it even after you leave.

  1. Go to:
  2. Click on the "Create Account" button.
  3. Enter your Southern ID number, birth date, and Social Security number.
  4. Choose a user name and password.

Usually within 15 minutes (or less), your account is set up and you may log in (top-right corner of Southern's website).
