How to add Guest Users to a SacCT Course


What is a Saclink Account:

Any Instructor, Student, or Staff on campus will have an active SacLink Account that is used to log into all connected campus systems. The SacLink username is generally the first half of a user's Sac State email address.


How to Request A Guest Account for Users without a Saclink Account

For individuals who are not a part of Sac State and do not have a SacLink account, Sac State Faculty or Staff may use an online form to initiate the guest account creation process as explained below:

  1. Use the SacLink Sponsored Guest Request Form to start a guest account request. If you have questions about the guest account request form, please contact the IRT Service Desk at (916) 278-7337 or in AIRC 2005.

  2. Within 1-3 days, the requesting Sac State faculty or staff should receive an email that their guest account request is “completed” along with their guest’s Sac State ID#.

  3. The sponsoring Faculty or Staff member will need to notify their guest to visit and use the provided Sac State ID# to setup their own guest account username and login information.

  4. After the guest creates their own guest account, the guest will need to notify the sponsoring Sac State Faculty or Staff to enroll their new guest username into a SacCT course (follow the instructions in the “Enroll users …” section below).

  5. NOTE: New guest accounts should become available to enroll in SacCT within 24 hours after the guest selects their new username.


Enroll users in SacCT using their SacLink username:

  1. In the lower-left menu, click Users and Groups.
  2. Click the Users link.

  3. Click the button Find Users to Enroll

  4. In the Username box, type a SacLink username.
    (Do not click the Browse button)

  5. Select a Role from the drop-down menu (most likely Student or TA)
  6. Click Submit

If you encounter an issue enrolling a guest user(s) to your SacCT course please email with your course name and guest account information.
