IT Tip - Single Sign On with PennKey

posted by Wharton Computing Student Support on February 2, 2015 in WCIT

Now that SPIKE and many other services have transitioned PennKey login, you can start enjoying the benefits when you visit the websites you use on a daily basis. When you log into SPIKE, Canvas is automatically logged in too. The convenience doesn't stop there: Career Services (UGR) / Career Management (MBA), appointment schedulers, mailing lists, and Campus Groups are just a few more of the things that are automatically logged in too. It's okay if SPIKE is not your usual first stop. Starting with any one of these will log in the rest.
