Access to UGA Identity Management, Portal services and the student information system, as well as Information Security programs and policies.

CAS is the service that requires users to provide their MyID and password to access many UGA-provided websites. CAS is a tool to authenticate users when logging in to a site.

A new single-sign-on authentication service, called UGA SSO, will be available July 20, 2019.
