NCREN Community Credentials

The NCREN Community Credentials account service provides Single Sign On (SSO) access to information in MCNC's online information services, and is offered to our community for those institutions that do not yet participate in one of the NCREN recognized federations. If your institution already provides an SSO account or participates in one of the recognized federations, an NCREN Community account may not be needed. Otherwise, please follow the instructions below in order to complete the process of creating your account.
