  1. Hi, i’m attempting to log in to my student account but it is returning the error “Could not log in. Valid authentication credentials were not provided.” Prior to the update i was able to login using my ID 21799334 and my password. I understand that it is only an hour after the update was completed, however, i am unable to log on.

      • Hi Meg,

        I had done that prior to sending my message just to check, however i’m still getting the same message.

        Thanks for your quick response!


        • Thanks Steven – we’ve spotted an authentication issue we’re working on now – hopefully it won’t be too long. Thanks so much for your patience. Meg.

  2. Furthermore, I’m currently using my Chromebook to log in – I have just tried using my Mac running Firefox and the same issue occurs.


  3. We have authentication lift off!
    Thank-you for your patience; you should now be able to access the upgraded system with your normal login credentials.
    Kind regards,
