Endorsement From a Professor Outside the U of S

When a professor clicks an endorsement link, they are asked to log in with an NSID. However, sometimes tutors need to request an endorsement from a professor from another university who does not have an NSID. In this case, the professor can sign up for a U of S guest account following these steps. These steps should be completed by the professor, not the tutor seeking the endorsement.

  1. Go to
  2. Enter the desired username, your First and Last names and an email address (cannot be a Usask address - please use an address from the other institution). Fill in the Captcha and press "Create Account".
  3. Check email. There will be a message from U of S Guest Services. Click the link to continue on to fill in account details (steps 4 & 5).
  4. Set 3 secret questions and answers. These will be used in case of a forgotten password.
  5. Set a password and confirm it by typing it again in the two boxes provided.
  6. Using this username and password, you should now be able to log into the endorsement page and provide the endorsement.
Note: Accounts will be active for 1 year. Near the end of that year, email will be sent to the address on file with a link for the person to renew their account for another year.
