Single Sign-On Frequently Asked Questions

What is single sign-on?

The single sign-on is a way to sign in using one login, one time, and be connected to SPC systems from one spot.

 

Why did SPC decide to go to a single sign-on process?

SPC has made this change to better serve our students, faculty and staff, who are now be able to more easily access the resources available within the college with a single username/password combination.

 

What has changed for me? 

New Login Options

Students, faculty and staff now have dedicated login options Student Login and Faculty/Staff Login located on the college home page www.spcollege.edu.

 

New Login Page and New Landing Pages

The new login page replaced MySPC login page. All the links previously located on MySPC login page are easily accessible from the College’s main website navigation or the new login page. After logging in with your SPC email address, you can access all your SPC resources without prompts for additional credentials.

 

If you a faculty or staff member logged on to an SPC computer on campus with your individual network account, you are able to access your resources without additional login prompts.
