As part of our initiative to improve student success and academic integrity, all on-line students are required to verify their student identity. Federal regulations require that all institutions verify that the student who registers in an on-line learning course is the same student who participates in and completes the course.

As an on-line student, you will be asked to create a biometric password using a tool called Biometric Signature ID (BioSig-ID™). This password cannot be replicated by someone else.

You will be asked at various points throughout the course to validate your identity.

Please Note: All BioSig-ID™ activity takes place in the Canvas course(s).

BioSig-ID™ Enrollment Process:

  1. Watch the process explained visually in the following video
