Access to Student Accounts
Depending on your status as a student, access to certain accounts may be limited.
If you have completed your application, but have not yet been accepted to become a student of Loyola University New Orleans, no accounts have been created for you.
If you have been accepted and have not made a deposit, a Microsoft account will be created so that you can access LORA Self-Service. The email/username you will receive is for authentication purposes only. At this point, no Gmail or SSO account has been issued.
Once you have made your deposit, accounts are created for Gmail and Single Sign-On (SS0). You will continue to have access to LORA Self-Service with the Microsoft account that was created when you were admitted.
The default password is the first letter of your first name, the first letter of your last name, your birth date followed by an uppercase LU. (flmmddyyyyLU) Ex. Jane Doe born January 01, 2001 would have a default password of jd01012001LU.
The default password is the first two letters of your first name, the last four digits of your social security number, followed by an uppercase LU. Ex. Jane Doe with the last four of their SSN as 1234 (ja1234LU)
Microsoft / SSO Password Sync
Starting on June 1, 2022, whenever a password change takes place on your Loyola Microsoft account (at office.com), your SSO password will also change to the new Microsoft password.
New students are required to change their Microsoft password the first time they log in to office.com. This is why it is important for all new students to go to office.com and reset their password before going to the SSO.
The Microsoft account credentials will be the username and password for the following systems. Whenever the password changes at office.com, it will automatically change on all of these systems.
- LORA Self-Service
- Medicat Health Portal
- LoynoSecure wifi
- Papercut (printing in the library)
- vlab.loyno.edu (lab application portal)
- Single Sign-On (SSO) [starting June 1, 2022]
Note: For returning students and faculty/staff. Nothing will change with their SSO credentials until the Microsoft password is changed/reset.
