How to get your University Microsoft account

Before you can sign up for your University (i.e. 'Business') Microsoft account under the University's EES agreement, you must complete the following preparatory steps in order to enable your account behind the scenes. Please be patient and allow up to 3 hours for your account to be enabled – you cannot proceed until your UIS Password has been synced with Microsoft's Active Directory.
