Update: Active Directory Login Issues
Posted by Rebecca Klein on 20 January 2016 10:22 AM

The sync issues between the AMS and our Active Directory system should be resolved at this time. There may be some individuals on campus who were affected by the issue; these people may experience the inability to login to network accounts while other logins work fine. To fix the issue, change your password with the AMS and this will force a re-sync among your accounts.

If you have changed your password and are still unable to login, please login in the upper left and begin an ITicket so our staff can follow up. You may also contact the Help Desk via email at or via phone at 219.464.5678.

Emails Regarding Student Account Center
Posted by Brandon Morrison on 23 December 2015 07:03 AM

Dear Faculty and Staff,

In November, a new Student Account Center (SAC) portal became available from Tuition Management Systems (TMS) and was implemented to allow students to access their student account information online. Valpo's partnership with TMS provides students with the ability to manage their financial accounts through this portal.

A recent change was made in the program that generates the list of individuals who receive an email inviting them to create an account on this system. This change resulted in numerous faculty and staff receiving emails from despite not being enrolled in classes on campus. We will be implementing additional changes to the system to ensure that only individuals who are enrolled as students receive these emails in the future. We regret the error and apologize for any confusion it has caused.
