Resolved: Partial Service Interruption: MyUCCS Portal

Posted on January 26th, 2017 by Help Desk

Update: UIS has resolved this issue. Users can now access the portal on touchscreen devices in Chrome.

Please let us know if you encounter any other issues with the myUCCS portal.

We are aware of an issue affecting the MyUCCS Portal for Students, Faculty, and Staff.


When logging into the portal using the Google Chrome browser on some touchscreen laptops or Android devices, users may encounter a 2+ minute delay (just a white screen) or an unresponsive browser.


Users should use Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Microsoft Edge when logging into the Portal. Note: Apple devices are unaffected.

We will update the campus when UIS (University Information Systems) has implemented a fix for this issue.
