Student Technology Introduction
Welcome to Eastern Oregon University!
Now that you’re a new student at EOU, you will be assigned a EOU Mountie Pass account that gives you access to services like EOU e-mail, campus wireless internet, Webster, Canvas, etc. You should received this information to the personal email account you list in the application when applying for EOU. If you haven’t received an email with this information, please contact the EOU IT Help Desk at (541) 962-3111 or at email@example.com so we can assist you with this.
Access your EOU e-mail, campus wireless, Webster and Canvas accounts with the same username and password. Mountie Pass is your one-stop shop for updating them all at once!
Mountie-Pass Username: Your Mountie-Pass username will be assigned to you automatically. The username is the part before the ‘@’ symbol in your email address. If you’re unsure what your Mountie-Pass username is or if you didn’t receive it to your email account information, be sure to contact the EOU IT Help Desk at (541) 962-3111 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mountie-Pass E-mail: Your Mountie-Pass email will be your automatically assigned Mountie-Pass username with “@eou.edu” at the end of it. For example: If your name is Monty Mountaineer, then your email address would be: email@example.com. If you’re unsure what your Mountie-Pass email is or if you didn’t receive it to your personal email account, be sure to contact the EOU IT Help Desk at (541) 962-3111 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mountie-Pass Password: The default Mountie-Pass password is your capital first initial followed by your lowercase last initial and birthday in the format: yy/mm/dd. For example: If your name is Monty Mountaineer and your birthday is June 21, 1994 your password will look like: Mm94/06/21 It’s recommended you change your Mountie-Pass password to something other than the default by using the reset website: support.eou.edu. Be sure to visit this site each and every time you need to update your Mountie-Pass password.
