- Enter either your social security number or your Banner ID number (e.g. B00123456), and hit 'Next'.
- When you click 'Next' on the new page displayed, an email will be sent to your personal non-Mills email account. If you only have Mills listed you will need to contact the M Center to have your personal email address added.
