Sakai Course Management System: Help at Seminole State

Sakai is designed to support the widest variety of client-side operating systems and browsers through its limited use of client-side technologies. While Sakai products generally function well in many browsers, the following browsers have been tested and are formally supported:

  • PCs Running Windows OS, XP or higher (Windows 95/98/ME not supported): Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Apple Safari
  • Macs Running OS X: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari

The America Online (AOL) Web browser will not work with Sakai. Please use Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari instead.

Logging Into Sakai

Watch the Sakai video tutorial to learn how to access and log into Sakai. You must have Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer to view the video.

Things to remember:

  • You must have a valid user ID and password to access Sakai.
  • You will not be able to log into your course(s) until the first day of classes.
  • If you register for a class during the add/drop period, there may be a slight delay (up to two business days) in the activation of your user ID and password. If you are unable to log into Sakai after the add/drop period, complete the Online Course Problem Form, and the distance learning staff will check on your account.
User ID

Your Sakai user ID is the same as the login name you created for your MySeminoleState account. If you registered for classes in person and have not yet created a MySeminoleState account, you must do so on the MySeminoleState home page. You must have a MySeminoleState login name to access Sakai.


Your Sakai password is your first and last initial in capital letters, followed by the six digits of your birth date in YYMMDD format, where YY represents the last two digits of your birth year; MM represents your two-digit birth month (January-September birth months must be preceded by a "0"); and DD represents your two-digit day of birth (1-9 birth dates must be preceded by a "0"). For example, if your name is John Doe and you were born on March 1, 1977, your password would be: JD770301.

Sakai passwords are case sensitive.Ensure that your initials are typed in capital letters and that there are no spaces between characters.
