The number of Tiles in the Portal depends on the development work in the Single Sign-On project. Check the Project page for what Tiles are currently available.

Some key featuresyou may see or use on this screen are described below.

Frequently asked questions

Why is my favorite app not in the MySCUPortal?

The MySCUPortal is the place to find all the apps that support single sign-on. Not all apps support it, but we are working on the apps that do, to bring more into the MySCUPortal. You will see more apps in the MySCUPortal as time goes on.

You can look up the apps in the MySCUPortal on the Single Sign-On Project page.

Do I have to use the MySCUPortal to get to my apps?

Some apps, like GMail, will redirect you to our single sign-on system when you try to log on to their front page. Other apps will not recognize you as SCU and will simply claim your password is incorrect. You may be able to go directly to the app to log in, and it may or may not work - but the MySCUPortal will always log you in.

How long do I have to log in to different apps without putting in my password again?

From the time you first log in to the MySCUPortal, a clock starts counting down. Most apps can be logged into within an hour, after which it will ask for your password again. However, if you click theLogout button in the MySCUPortal, the clock stops and no new apps will allow you to connect without logging in again.

Logging out of the MySCUPortal does not log you out of your apps. You need to log out of your apps separately.

We are working to implement "single log-out" to go along with our "single sign-in". This means logging out of any app will log out of all apps. This feature should be available later this year.

I want things to work differently!

The MySCUPortal is being actively developed, and more features will be rolled out over time. New features will be announced on the SSO Project page.

We will be asking for feedback and ideas for features as the Project progresses.

I have more questions about Single Sign-On.

The Single Sign-On Projectpage has information about the overall effort to bring all our digital services together. Some of your questions may have been answered on the Single Sign-On FAQ page. And if you still have questions, please email them to the Technical Helpdesk at techdesk@scu.edu.
