Passwords And Accounts
CUI Accounts and Their Differences
All CUI accounts can be categorized as either "Single Sign-On" or "Independent".
Single Sign-On (SSO) accounts are more common and are all linked together, meaning they share the same password. The most visited websites are single sign-on, including MyRecords, Blackboard, Email, and even Zoom. Changing the password for one account changes the password for all of them.

Independent accounts cover a broader range of websites and do not all share the same password. You may still need to use your E# or Email as a username/ID, but passwords are completely independent per website. For some, you may be able to reset the password yourself, but for others you may need an IT technician to assist you in getting that account working again.
As a friendly reminder, make sure to never share your E# and Password with anyone, as that is both a security risk (a shared key does not secure against other identical keys), and a headache (as the password will need to be changed to something that has not been used before).
