I am using the correct username and password but I can't login/can't access specific information, what is happening?
There are a number of reasons why this could occur. First and foremost, your accounts will only remain active as long as you are an actively enrolled student without any encumbrances on your enrolment. If there is an encumbrance, this could either stop you accessing specific parts of SIMO/MyLogin or may block access altogether.
To check your current enrolment status, simply login to SIMO and click on the Courses link. If your enrolment is showing a status code other than Enrolled, please make contact with Student Central for assistance.
For more information on your login accounts, simply ask any of our friendly staff at the eLab Counters. You can also call the IT Service Desk for further assistance.
For questions regarding your enrolment, please contact Student Central.
