IUP utilizes a Web Single Sign-on Service (WebSO) to handle access to the various services provided by the university. This allows user to use their IUP Computing Account Username and a single password to access WebSO configured services.
WebSO is a single sign-on service used to gain access to IUP web services. With WebSO, the user logs in once using the network (IUPMSD) username and password, and gains access to multiple systems without being prompted to log in to each system. Access to specific sites is determined by the access granted to the IUP username.
When a service or website is protected by WebSO, you will be prompted for your IUP username and network password. After entering this information correctly, the web browser will display the requested service or website, and it will also provide key information to the web application. In most cases, this will be your username. You will always be warned before information is disclosed to a new website. You will be able to access other WebSO websites during this browser session without re-entering your password.
To prevent others from accessing your personal information, you should always log out of the service(s) or websites after using WebSO. The best way to do this is to log out of all services and websites that you have accessed, and then completely exit your web browser.
If you questions related to WebSO, please contact the IT Support Center via ihelp.
Iaccounts is a page used for self-service password resets for the network, e-mail, and PASSHE/ESS passwords. More information on iaccounts can be found in this page’s menu.
Here is a list and short description of services and accounts at IUP:
Your MyIUP/Network username and password provides access to the campus network, MyIUP, VPN, VCL, drive mappings, campus computers, ireports, ihelp, iforms, online reporting, D2L, Moodle, and Banner.
The Network Account is what gives users access to MyIUP and other related WebSO sites. Users have the ability to set their own network passwords using iaccounts.
Please note: You should not set or change your network password while using a PC, laptop, or other device connected to IUP’s wireless network. If you change your password and you have not disconnected your devices from the wireless network, or you have not logged off all the computers you have used, your account will become locked. If you have saved your password on a browser to access MyIUP or other IUP resources, you will need to delete these saved passwords from your browser.
Under certain conditions, your network account may enter a temporary locked state. If this occurs, review the list of possible causes below and take the appropriate action.
After you have taken the necessary actions, your account will unlock within 15 minutes. Keep in mind when resetting your network password, your account will continue to lock if the old password is saved (i.e., in Internet browsers, network drives, Keychain, etc.).
If you continue to have your account locked out and have eliminated all other causes listed here, please contact the IT Support Center for assistance.
