Accessing Timelink from an off-campus location​​

In order to access Timelink from an off-campus location you will need to first connect to the CMU Network.  You can connect to the CMU Network using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). 

If you are off-campus and need to access Timelink, the VPN Client is​ available on the Office of Information Technology website.  Alternatively, you can download the client by navigating to one of these two sites directly, and the necessary configuration will take place automatically:

https://sg3.cmich.edu (for Global IDs that begin with N-Z)​
