Checklist for New Graduate Students

Graduate Professional Development (GPD)

Marshall University offers three to five graduate professional development (GPD) events each semester, open to all currently enrolled graduate students.

MU ID Number
Your student ID number is the nine digit number you were assigned upon admission. The number is noted in your admissions letter. If you do not know your MUID, use our MUID Lookup Tool.

Your MUID number is a very important and frequently used credential that you should  protect and not share. Your MUID is displayed on your student ID card. (See instructions below for obtaining the student ID card). Your student ID card  will be your primary identification for university business. The card identifies who you are and your student status at Marshall and will serve as your key to many university resources. Use your ID card for swipe access to the Drinko Library Study Center, study rooms, print services, snack machines, etc.

Student ID Card
Your student ID card will be necessary for virtually all in-person business you transact with the university. Your first step will be to get your  picture taken. A valid, government-issued photo ID is required. On the Huntington campus, you can get your ID picture taken at the Campus ID office in the lower level of the Memorial Student Center. On the South Charleston campus, you can get a picture made at the campus library (not the South Charleston Public Library) during their regular hours.


You will receive an MUNet Login username that provides access to the Marshall network and computing infrastructure. Your MUNet login username is the credential you use to access the campus-wide wireless network, your email, lab computers located on campus, your V (virtual) drive for storage, personal webpages, Google Apps, etc.
  • Your MUNet login username is an alphanumeric phrase based on your last name and a sequence number (example: smith125).
  • If you do not know your MUNet username and password, please visit to find your username and reset the password.
