Prompt: Please Sync Your Miami Account

Beginning Feb. 19, 2024, all current Miami users will see a prompt titled Please Sync Your Miami Account. Follow the instructions in this interrupt and select Sync Account to log in again, completing the account sync process. 

Full text of the interrupt:

ACTION REQUIRED: In order to continue to access all Miami resources (e.g., myMiami, Miami Mail, Canvas, etc.), you must sync your account in the system. After March 25, 2024, if you have not synced your account, you will need to recover your account by using a valid password recovery option. Please note: Secret questions are no longer a valid password recovery option. Please set either a phone number or personal email address at before March 25.

The “Sync Account” button below will redirect you to log in a second time. This is by design. Once you log in, your Miami account will be synced. That is all you need to do! Thank you for your help!



  • This may appear to be a "loop" requiring you to sign back in — this is intentional and part of the process
