Single Sign-On Services


The CSU system provides easy access to a number of system-wide services centrally using a process known as single sign-on:

  • Travel scheduling
  • Moodle training for faculty and students
  • PeopleSoft Finance (CFS)
  • CSU data warehouse
  • CSU Chancellor's Office Wireless

The process also extends to a number of HSU-specific systems and requires only your HSU User Name and Password (plus additional authentication in certain instances) for access. The fewer passwords you need to remember, the easier your life will be.

Once you log in to any of the above CSU services, or any of the HSU services that support single sign-on, you can move easily between services during the same browser session without the need to log in and out of each service separately.

HSU also makes use of single sign-on technology called SPNEGO, which enables users of most HSU-owned office computers to be automatically logged into all single sign-on services when they log into their computers. Time-outs still apply to myHumboldt and other single sign-on services, but the process of signing back in is now automated. Certain exceptions apply, and SPNEGO is not available on lab computers or off-campus.

Who's it for?

System Configuration

HSU's single sign-on system is compatible with most popular browsers.

Additional Information

If you're unable to log into these services, first double-check your HSU User Name and Password in the Account Center. If that's not the issue, call the Help Desk at (707) 826-HELP (4357) to check your permissions.
