Access to Systems

Account Setup and Password Reset

UC San Diego uses two main accounts for accessing systems: Active Directory (AD) and Business Systems. Many systems also require Two-Step Login using the Duo application.

Active Directory (AD)

Business Systems

Single-Sign-On (SSO)

Single-Sign-On (SSO) is a mechanism for verifying your identity when you to sign onto UCSD applications and websites. SSO works with AD, Business Systems, and/or Student accounts. The application you are trying to access determines which type(s) of account may be used to sign on.

The sign on screen specifies which account credentials you should enter:

SSO Sign On

You may see a dropdown list, which means you can choose which account credentials to use:

If you have problems signing on, contact the support team for the account you are trying to use (i.e. AD or Business Systems).
