Log-in, reports, and administrative functionality will not be accessible, so download and save any work before the transition. Please plan to complete any work in the legacy system and start subsequent work in MedU’s new system as soon as possible. Students and faculty will be directed to log-in to the new system after November 8. Faculty can visit the MedU library guide for step-by-step instructions, video guides, and recorded webinars.
