Follow these instructions to register for animal research.
SSO is the campus wide identity authentication mechanism to maintain secure web sites. You must first establish an SSO account in order to access the Animal Use Protocol System. SSO is maintained by UCSD Administrative Computing and Telecommunications (ACT). Contact ACT directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or (858)-534- 1853 if you have questions. Do not contact the IACUC office as they have no control over SSO.
STAFF: You will find detailed information regarding SSO at http://blink.ucsd.edu/technology/network/access/business-systems/access.html. You will find "How to Self- Register" and "Reset Your Password" links available on the left navigation column.
STUDENT: If you are an active UCSD student, you already have an SSO account in place.
AFFILIATE: If you are an affiliate (non UCSD-paid post-doctoral scholar, non UCSD student, inactive UCSD employee or student, volunteer, visiting scholar, industrial partner, or are otherwise employed by one of the academic affiliates, such as HHMI, LICR, VASDS, VMRF), who needs access to the system, you will not be able to self register for a SSO account. You must contact the Departmental Security Administrator (DSA) in your sponsoring or PI’s department to assist you in obtaining an SSO account. You can retrieve a list of your DSAs by email or by department.
How do I know if I have an SSO account?
Try to log into AUPS (at http://iacuc.ucsd.edu click on Log In). If you are unable to log in to SSO, then proceed with resetting your SSO password. If you are unsuccessful with those two steps, then you need to obtain a SSO account.
I don't remember my SSO password. How do I retrieve it?
There is no mechanism in place for you to retrieve your password. If you are an active UCSD employee, you would need to reset your password via http://blink.ucsd.edu/technology/security/SSO/reset.html. If you are an affiliate, please contact your sponsoring department's Departmental Security Administrator (DSA) to have your password reset.
Who do I contact if I run into problems with SSO?
If you know your SSO account username and password but are still having difficulties, you must contact the ACT Help Desk at (858) 534-1853 or email@example.com. The IACUC/AWP staff are unable to help with SSO problems.
