Microsoft My Apps Single Sign-On (SSO)

On Tuesday, June 1, 2021, the CSULB Single Sign-On (SSO) service will transition from Okta to Microsoft My Apps. The new SSO service will continue to be available at the same current website address:

Key Changes and Benefits

  • New SSO Login Page - The SSO login page will change to a CSULB branded Microsoft login page: CSULB My Apps login screen
  • New SSO Apps dashboard - All your available applications ("tiles"), will reside in a new dashboard/landing page, as shown by the following early preview: Preview of the new Microsoft My Apps landing page showing sample CSULB software applications
  • More convenient and secure - Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) services will be required upon SSO login, and will not be required for individual applications, as it is currently for some of our specific applications.  This means all your SSO services will be protected by MFA upon SSO login.   However, for your protection, Common Management Services such as Student Center (MyCSULB), Employee Center, Faculty Center, and HR applications will require you to re-authenticate with MFA if you select one of these services in SSO and haven’t been prompted for MFA within 60 minutes.
    • Employees, please note: If you currently use Duo MFA for CMS Finance, this will remain in place until further notice.
