When you log in to the Portal, you should see a little box on the left called Saba Classroom (Centra), with a link to SIDE .

Just occasionally, the box is empty or will not load. This is a problem that we are working very hard to fix. In the meantime, here's a way to access Saba Classroom (Centra) directly, and get into your lessons.

  2. Use your Portal username with /users/ in front of it (for example, /users/joe.student)
  3. Use your usual Portal password to login.
  4. Click on the My Schedule link at left.
