How do I log into the eMTA System?
Can I log into the eMTA System remotely?
To use the eMTA system off-campus, you must use UCSD’s Cisco VPN client with the “allthruucsd” option.
Step 1: Download and install the Cisco VPN client to your device: http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/vpn
Step 2: Launch the VPN client
Step 3: Select the “allthruucsd” group & click CONNECT
Step 4: Enter your AD login and password
Step 5: Once you are successfully connected, you should be able to use the eMTA system: https://emta.ucsd.edu
Who can log in to the eMTA System?
eMTA is for UCSD employees only.
If you do not have UCSD Single-Sign-On access you will not be able to log in to the system.
What happens if I can't find the person/ institution I am looking for in the eMTA System?
Start by conducting a wild card search using the % sign on each side of the word. Use this method every time you search for a name or institution in the eMTA system.
- To search for all PI's containing the name Zhang, enter %zha% and hit enter.
- To search for a sponsor/agency/institution like Stanford, enter %stan% and hit enter.
If you have exhausted all searches and still cannot find the person or institution you are looking for, enter "Other" into the field and contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please review Principal Investigator (PI) Eligibility to ensure the eligibility of the PI.
