Accessing LSUS online applications/resources as a guest from another institution/organization

Occasionally, members of external/partner institutions or organizations will be invited to work within an application/resource that LSUS owns and/or hosts.

Typically, LSUS ITS accomplishes this by adding the home organization accounts of these members as guest accounts within the LSUS organization with permission to access said application/resource. For example, an individual from the LSUAM campus my have their account added as a guest with permission to access the LSUS Moodle instance.

If your home organization account has been granted such access, you can follow these steps to login to said application/resource. The example below shows access the LSUS Moodle instance as a guest user, but the same process can be followed regardless of the application/resource being accessed.

  1. Open your web browser and navigate to the URL of the application you have been granted access to. (E.g.

(Note that for some institutions/organizations, at this step, you may be prompted to setup a password that you will use when accessing LSUS resources. If this is the case, follow the instructions provided for setting up your password.)
