Single Sign On (SSO)

The SSO is an application portal that gives you access to multiple systems with just one sign on.  
 
Open a browser.  Go to loyno.edu and click on Log In To and select Single Sign On.    
 
Username - Your username is everything before the @ symbol in your Loyola email address.   yourusername@loyno.edu
 
Password - Your password is the first two characters of your first name followed by the last 4 digits of your social security number.(fnXXXX) (If you did not give Loyola University your social security number, you will need to call the Help Desk at 504-865-2255 or email support@loyno.edu.)
 
After setting up security, click on My Applications at the lower right..  Then click on LORA for Students.  LORA is a very important system you will use often.  It will ask you to login one time.  Use the same default password.  After that, you will not need to login to LORA again.
 
* Always remember to logout of the SSO, especially when using public, lab or library computers.
** We do not recommend bookmarking the SSO page.
