In 2020, many students created their OLAs using their Google accounts rather than logging in to the OLA platform with their academic credentials. Now, students are able to access the platform through the MyAcademicID proxy, using their academic credentials, provided that their HEI is part of the eduGAIN network.

If your HEI is not part of the eduGAIN network, or your students have already started the OLA process with their Google account, they can still access the OLA platform with it, but they will nevertheless need to register to the MyAcademicID proxy.

Students that have already created their OLA with their Google account will keep their OLA when logging in through MyAcademicID with their Google account, while if they choose to log in now using their academic credentials, they will need to create a new OLA.

When trying to log in from the website, students will be redirected to the MyAcademicID login page (see screenshot).

Here, they can either select their HEI and then log in with their academic credentials, or they can use the "Login with Google" button. If they use the Google login, they will be asked to choose a Google account and then to register to the MyAcademicID proxy using that account. The Google account email address will be the one used for the registration email and any further communication.
