If you have signed up for MFA, please enter one of the following to login:
- Network Username - the first portion of your official university email address (@mailbox.sc.edu or @email.sc.edu). Enrolled students, faculty, staff, and affiliates will use this official credential for accessing most university systems.
- VIP ID is an eight digit number. Currently faculty, staff, and students can find their VIP ID here. Admitted students can find their VIP ID in their acceptance materials.
- Blackboard Auxiliary ID - allows access to Blackboard for users who do not have a Network Username or VIP ID but have a legitimate need to access the system.
