Why do I get an SSO expired message when I try to access my account?

The Single Sign On (SSO) does not work well when the url is bookmarked.  Sometimes a date is inserted in the bookmark automatically upon creation.  When you try to access the bookmark after that date, it will see it as expired.

To fix this issue, avoid bookmarking the SSO site.  You can get to it by going to the "Log into" pull down menu on the loyno.edu home page

or

Simply type in sso.loyno.edu in the url space of your browser.  After you type it in once, it will autofill the next time.

Remember when logging into the SSO user everything before the @ symbol of your email address as the username.

The university is licensed to install Carbon Black Antivirus on all Loyola-owned computers. Information Technology installs this for you upon the initial setup of your computer. You can verify it is running on your computer by checking if the Carbon Black icon in your system tray in the lower right corner of your windows computer or on the upper right side of the menu bar of your Apple computer.

Carbon Black icon

The Carbon Black license does not cover personal or student computers. Please secure your computer by installing an antivirus program before bringing it to campus. The following programs have free versions for consumers.

Avast

This program will cover Apple, android, and IOs devices.
https://www.avast.com/en-us/free-antivirus-download#pc

Sophos

This program can be installed on Windows or Apple/Mac computers. The home version is free to consumers only. This program can be installed on Windows or Apple/Mac computers. The home version is free to consumers only.

https://www.avg.com/en-us/free-antivirus-download-t2#pc

What do I do if my Carbon Black icon has a red "x" on my Mac?

The red "X" icon means that the Carbon Black antivirus program is offline.  This is mainly caused by an update that needs to be "allowed" in order for the newer version to be installed.  Unfortunately, the program will get stuck in the offline mode while it waits for the user to allow the upgrade.   This needs to be resolved as soon as possible in order to assure protection of your device.

 

Carbon Black Offline (Red "X")

 

 

 

 

1. Open System Preferences.  Go to Security and Privacy.  Select the General tab.

 

3. You will need to unlock the System Preferences window to make changes.

How to setup Google 2-Step Verification

Google 2-Step Verification is a way to increase the security of your email account.  All faculty and staff need to login into their email account through the Chrome browser in order to enroll.  Enrolling in 2-step verification through Outlook or Mac Mail is not possible.  All Outlook or Mac Mail users need to access their email accounts via the Chrome browser and go to gmail.com.

It is required that everyone enroll by turning on the verification process themselves.  By signing into your Gmail account via the Chrome browser, you will be prompted to setup your 2-step verification, if you have not already enrolled.  You will be given the option to enroll or to defer the process until later. If you choose to "Do This Later", you will be prompted to enroll again at another time.  However, if you wait until after the designated deadline, you will be locked out of your account.  You will then need to call the Help Desk at X2255 and leave a message to open a ticket.  As this will take time to resolve, we recommend that you enroll your account right away.  The deadline will be announced in an email.

Note:  If you are not prompted to enroll and wish to verify that your account is already enrolled in 2-step verification, then click here.

LORA Self-Service

How to I access LORA Self-Service

 

Accessing LORA Self-Service

LORA (Loyola Online Records Access) is being replaced with a newer system called LORA Self-Service.  Like LORA you will use LORA Self-Service to register for classes, check your grades, access your financial aid, view and pay bills and audit classes.

 

Getting Started

  1. Access the Loyola Self-Service login through Loyola’s SSO Application Portal by going to sso.loyno.edu and login.  Your username for the SSO is everything before the @ symbol of your Loyola email address. The new student, faculty and staff default password is the first letter of your first name, the first letter of your last name, your birthdate and then an uppercase LU.  (flmmddyyyyLU)  Returning students, faculty and staff default is the first two letters of your first name, the last 4 digits of your social security number, followed by an uppercase LU (abXXXXLU)  Note:  Any change to your Microsoft password will automatically change your SSO password as well. If you have reset your Microsoft password after 6/1/2022, the SSO password automatically changed as well.

  1. Select the “SSO Apps” tab.

  1. Click on the icon labeled “LORA Self-Service”.  

  1. LORA Self-Service uses your current Loyola Microsoft credentials.  These are the same credentials that you use to print in the library, access Loyno Secure Wifi, access Medicat Health Portal and your Microsoft account.  If you change your Loyola Microsoft password, it will change on all of these systems, including LORA Self-Service.

Your Loyola Microsoft username is your entire email address.  The default password is the first letter of your first name, the first letter of your last name, your birthdate and then an uppercase LU.  (flmmddyyyyLU)  For more information, go to https://it.loyno.edu/your-loyola-microsoft-account

  1. If assistance is needed to access LORA Self-Service, use your Loyola email account and send a service request to support@loyno.edu or leave a message at 504-865-2255.

What credentials do I use to login to LORA Self Service?

LORA Self Service uses your Loyola Microsoft account credentials.  These are the same credentials you use to get into Microsoft Office 365 (free for students), Loyno Secure wifi, Medicat, Papercut (printing on campus) and vlab.loyno.edu (student application portal).  If you currently access these resources, use the same credentials to get into the LORA Self Service.

If you have never accessed these resources or used your Loyola Microsoft account, we highly recommend that you log into Microsoft first by going to office.com (note the credential format below).

Username:  Your full Loyola email address (xxxxxxxx@my.loyno.edu)

Password: 

a. If you have used your Loyola Microsoft Credentials to use any of the resources mentioned above, use the same credentials to access LORA Self Service.  If you forgot your password, go to office.com and select "forgot password" to reset it.  

b. New Students - the default password is the first letter of your first name, the first letter of your last name, your birthday and then an uppercase LU.  (abmmddyyyyLU)  You will be forced to change your password when first logging into office.com.  Do this before going to Lora Self Service.

c:  Returning Students who have not used their Loyola Microsoft password before, will use the old default password - the first two letters of your first name, the last four digits of your social security number, then LU (abXXXXLU). Go to office.com first to make sure you can login, before going to LORA Self Service.

Remember: When you change your Microsoft password at office.com, it will automatically change for the LORA Self Service and all of the resources mentioned above too.

Canvas

Why is my Canvas not displaying any information?

Get into your SSO account and click on the Canvas icon.  It will open without asking you to login.  You should see items in your dashboard.  When no items are display, it usually means it is a browser issue.

Canvas works best with the Chrome browser.  If you do no use Chrome, consider downloading it, even if the sole purpose is to run Canvas.  

Other browser tips:  

1. Make sure you are on the latest version of your browser.

2. Restart your computer if it hasn't been restarted in more that a day.

3. Clear cache.
