Q2. How do I create a user id so that I
can log in and see my information?
You must click on the “Create a Student Login” link. You
will then be taken to a web page where you will enter

ensure that you are the correct user.
As part of your user id creation you will need to enter your

account, you are eligible to log in to your MD CAPS user
account with the user name and password you created.

filters. You MUST receive the email in order to activate
your account. We can resend the email if you delete it by
to write down your username, password, and the email address
