Getting Started 


  • I attended EVO (Eagle View Orientation) and was told I would get an email from MSB afterwards with instructions and information. Why haven’t I gotten that email yet?

  • I’m a new undergraduate, transfer, or dual-enrolled student required to pass the “Essentials Course” before I can register for next semester. Can I just use my personal email address to get started?

  •   I thought this course was only required for freshman under 21. Is that true?

  • I was asked to take the “Essentials Course” by a campus administrator, but I already completed and passed it. Or, I am not a new undergraduate, transfer, or dual-enrolled student and am being asked to take the “Essentials Course”—how do I get started?  

  • I have to take the “STUDENT CONDUCT” of MSB—what are my instructions?

  • How do I know if I’m required to take the MyStudentBody Essentials Course?

  • What is the school code?

  • The site requires I enter my Social Security Number. I am an international student and do not have a Social Security Number. What should I enter in that space to complete the information?


  • I am a returning user and have forgotten my username and/or password. Help!

  • I'm a returning user, but the system reports I don't have an account. When I try to set up an account with my FGCU Eagle Mail again, it says that UserID is already taken. How can I access my account without having to take the course over again?

  • On the Registration page, I've filled out my information, but the box to click for Terms of Use won't let me click it. What's going on?

  • I am taking the Essentials Course, and I've received a pop-up page that says "Page Cannot Be Displayed." Why is this happening?

  • I can’t seem to see any tools or peer stories. Can you help?

  •  Why can’t I view bar graphs in the Rate Myself reports?

  •   After passing the post-quiz, I was unable to view the certificate of completion. I saw an error page instead. Why?

  • My sound doesn’t work. How do I fix it?

  •  I am trying to complete a MyStudentBody Essentials Course. I have read all of the articles and strategies, and a checkmark appears by each one, yet I can’t seem to move on to the next section. What do I need to do?

  •   I am working with a MAC and am unable to print the certificate. Why?

  • I don’t have a printer, so I can’t print the certificate of completion. I tried to print my certificate on a friend’s computer, but it didn’t work.  


  • When is the hold on my account removed after I’ve taken the Essentials Course?

  • I've passed the MSB Essentials Course for FGCU, but there is still a hold on my account. What’s going on?  


  • How do I know if I’ve passed the MSB Essentials Course?

  •  I finished taking MyStudentBody Essentials Course, but I failed to pass the post quiz for one of the modules. What should I do?

  •   What should I do with my certificate of completion?

  • When do I have to complete this by and what do I have to do?  

  •  My course completion certificate reports that I “DID NOT PASS” the course. What should I do?

  •  I have already completed the MyStudentBody Essentials Course. How do I return to the certificate page to prove that I have completed the course?  



  •  I’m under 21. Can I be sure that no one sees my answers about my drinking?

  •  What do you mean by personalized information?  


  • Whom do I contact with additional questions?
