The Account Portal (myCBTS / OneLogin) is used to link accounts from the different resources you will use as a student. Once accounts are linked, students only need to remember their portal credentials to access other sites, including library resources.

CBTS Email Accounts - Every student taking courses for credit will receive a CBTS email address ( before their first term of study. CBTS email addresses are important to check for course information and notices from the school and instructors. Other accounts are linked to the CBTS email address, such as Moodle, Populi, and Office365. Students that do not take classes for credit do not receive a CBTS email address.

Moodle is the platform for providing access to course resources and activities, such as discussion boards and submitting assignments.

Populi is the student records system, through which students can register online, track academic progress, and print unofficial transcripts.

LiveText is used for program assessment. Depending on your degree program, students may be asked to submit specific assignments into LiveText. Certain programs do not require students to use LiveText.

Zoom is the technology platform for live class meetings. Students download the program and sign up for a free account from the Zoom website.
