Setup Single Sign-On (SSO)

A very useful feature of the myWKU portal is the Single Sign On function. With Single Sign On (SSO), the web resources that you use, such as Webmail, Blackboard, or Banner will have their passwords remembered as long as you access them from myWKU. Because of this feature, you no longer have to worry about multiple passwords being saved on multiple machines because they are all saved to one application and the only password you will have to know is your NetID password.

Some Applications Accessible through myWKU portal using SSO
  • Email - Outlook
  • TopNet
  • Blackboard
  • Banner
  • MyStuff
  • InfoView
  • Course Evaluations
  • Software Center
  • Advance
  • ESignature
  • Request Tracking
  • Banner Finance Reports
