Learn how the Single Sign-On process allows UCSD faculty and staff to enter a user ID and password just once for access to a number of campus systems.
With Single Sign-On (also called SSO), one ID and password authenticates your identity and access rights, giving you entry to a set of campus Business Systems. With SSO, you sign in once and don't have to sign in again — until you sign out or remain idle for a period of time and close the browser session.
Business Systems involved include:
- Some systems require prior authorization/ training.
- See Business Systems/ Link Family for a complete list. Other campus systems and services will be added over time.
- You must use a different password for campus e-mail and network/ departmental systems, as they are not coordinated with Single Sign-On.
- You will need a valid UCSD e-mail address (email@example.com, not firstname.lastname@example.org) and an active, paid appointment to register a new Single Sign-On account.
How it works
When you access any of the participating UCSD Business Systems, a sign-in page, as shown here, will appear (click the image for a larger view). By signing in, you get access to all the systems you're authorized to use.
How to register
To register as a new user, read these simple instructions.
