Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why don't I see the same layout as my colleague in myColumbia?

MyColumbia creates a customized layout for you with content and services based on your roles at the University. For instance, all faculty and staff will see a page where they can view paychecks, update personal information, and perform related tasks. But only authorized administrators will see links to financial applications.

  • I notice that something on a myColumbia page is incorrect. Who should I notify?

MyColumbia contains information from many different University sources. For changes in content, contact the department that originates the information.

  • I have just logged into myColumbia and I know I typed my correct UNI and password, so why do I still end up back at the page that asks you to log in?

This means that you are still not logged in to myColumbia. Make sure that cookies are enabled in your browser.

  • What does single sign-on mean and why do I still have to log on again?

Single sign-on lets you log in using your UNI and password to access several secured applications without having to log in again to each one. Note that not all myColumbia applications use single sign-on.
