  • A current instructor or a currently-enrolled student in one of the follow courses: WRTG 1150, WRTG 1250, WRTG 1100, ARSC 3100

 2. I got this message: “You entered an incorrect IdentiKey username/password combination. Please try again” What shoud I do?

 

PROBLEM: Your IdentiKey username or password was not recognized by campus authentication.

SOLUTION:

Step 1: Go to the campus portal, CUconnect, and log in using your IdentiKey.

Step 2a: If you can login to the portal using the same username and password that you attempted to login to RIOT, contact pwrhelp@colorado.edu for assistance

Step 2b: If you can't login to the portal, then there is a problem with your identikey. Contact the ITS Help desk at 5-HELP or help@colorado.edu .

6. What is an identikey?

An IdentiKey account consists of your CU login name and a unique password that is usually different from your e-mail password. Visit the ITS identikey webpage for more information.

 

7. How do I know if I am in the campus enterprise directory?

The following individuals are most likely in the campus enterprise directory.

 

UCB Students that are . . .

  • Actively enrolled in the current term
  • Not actively enrolled in the current term, but will take classes in the upcoming term
  • On time out
  • Taking distance learning courses through Continuing Education
  • Faculty or Staff with active appointments on the Boulder Campus or Central Campus who have a Boulder campus mailing address.

Individuals who have been “sponsored” by UCB staff or faculty for a finite period of time and have been added to the enterprise directory by ITS.

 

If you do not fit into one of these categories or have a loose affiliation with UCB, you may not be in the campus enterprise directory.

Pop-up windows: The tutorial web pages include many pop-up windows. Please disable any pop-up window blocking software while you are working on the tutorial.
