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

uga sso

This new environment provides improved authentication connections, better security, and the ability to use two-factor authentication to access web applications.

All UGA web applications using the legacy versions of University’s authentication service will be required to transition to UGA SSO. This includes applications using the Central Authentication Service (CAS), Lightweight Directory Service (LDP) and Identity Provider (IDP).

Departments must complete this transition by March 6, 2020.

Once an application has completed the transition to UGA SSO, the log-in page will change from Central Authentication Service (CAS) to UGA SSO. 

Between July 20, 2019 and March 6, 2020, you may see the CAS log-in page or the UGA SSO log-in page when you access a UGA application. Both log-in pages should have a lock in the address bar, meaning they are secure, valid sites. 

Timeline for Transitioning Applications
