About Your USCNetID

All USC faculty, staff, and students receive a USC NetID account, also known as your Shibboleth or enterprise account. These accounts grant you access to your USC email account, USC network and wireless services, and a wide variety of online services including the Blackboard learning management system and Workday.

Systems You Can Access Using Your USC NetID Account

Below is a list of some of the primary systems that you can access using your USC NetID account.

Note: Some USC schools and departments maintain local systems that are not dependent on the USC NetID account. Systems where you are asked for PIN (instead of a password) are not dependent on your USC NetID.

  • Workday
  • Blackboard
  • Google Apps at USC
  • Microsoft Office 365
  • MyUSC and all single sign-on applications when accessed through MyUSC, including Oasis, Registration, Course Evaluations, Add Syllabus to Schedule of Classes
  • USC Secure Wireless

Note for IT Support Staff: The applications affected are primarily those that rely on Kerberos or Shibboleth for authentication. However, some school-based web applications that authenticate via LDAP may also be affected.
