Last Updated 2 years ago

Logging on to the Student Portal and Learning Center.

Each Student will be sent a username and password to the Student Portal, when they have officially enrolled.. The system will automatically assign the student a username; usually the first letter of their first name plus their full last name. This will change if that combination is already taken by another student. If already taken it will end up being that combination plus 1 or 2 or 3 etc., until a unique combination of characters is found.

You can logon to the Student Portal from the university website at caluniversity.edu. On the university website home page click on the horizontal menu option named “LOGIN”. You will have an option to login directly to the Learning Center (My Classes ), or the Student Portal. Click on the Student Portal link to open the following login page.

We recommend you use Google Chrome, so we will provide instructions on how to disable the popup blocker in the Chrome browser. Click on the configuration/options icon in the upper right corner of the Google Chrome browser. Select “Settings” from the menu options. Scroll down to the bottom and click on the advanced link to display advanced settings. Find the “Privacy and security” category and click on the link named "Content Settings". Find the category called "Popups” and open. Adjust the slider control to allow popups on all sites. Instead of enabling popups for all sites you can adjust the slider control to block all sites and define exceptions for certain sites.

The following screenshot shows all sites configured to allow for popups.

Your final configuration shows popups blocked on all sites, except for the two exceptions: myportal.caluniversity.edu and myclasses.caluniversity.edu

Final Note: We also recommend you enable popups for myclasses.caluniversity.edu. Certain resources such as the online Textbook may open up in a popup window, which will require that popups be enabled for the domain myclasses.caluniversity.edu.

Alternatively, you can enable popups for each site by clicking on the alert in the address bar.

By default, Google Chrome blocks pop-ups from automatically showing up on your screen. When a pop-up is blocked, the address bar will be marked Pop-ups blocked. Click on the small icon with red X to Always show popups from the site
