Joe Miner’s Self-Service

Joe’SS. You’ve heard about it. You’ve probably even used it. But what is it?

Joe’SS (pronounced “Joe’s”) is short for Joe Miner’s Self-Service. It is a web portal that allows students access to their account information such as course history, online payment options, payment history, billing statements, financial aid information, registration schedule, transcripts and more. Joe’SS is completely web-based and accessible from anywhere. Simply use your username (same as what you use to access your Missouri S&T e-mail) to login. Students will need to agree to e-Consent to access their financial information and to facilitate communication with the Cashiers and Student Financial Assistance Offices.
