Resolved: Changes to ANGEL Login During Finals Week

Last updated on December 20, 2013 at 2:07PM

During finals week, December 16-20, students, faculty, and staff who use ANGEL will login to the system through the ANGEL homepage instead of WebAccess. As a result, the login page will look different from the usual WebAccess page. Users will still login using their Penn State user ID and password, however, the authentication will not be through WebAccess. This change is being made to help ensure the continuous availability of ANGEL during finals week, typically a peak usage period for ANGEL. Users should note that switching ANGEL away from WebAccess means that ANGEL will not be part of the single sign-on services during this time. As a result, users will be prompted to login again when moving between ANGEL and to/from other online Penn State services. Other single sign-on services, such as WebMail and eLion, will not be affected. The switch will begin at 7:00 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time) Monday, December 16, and end after the final exam period is completed at noon (Eastern Standard Time) Friday, December 20.
