Nkoda Institutional Sign In Process - University of Georgia

NOTE: It’s very important to follow each of the steps carefully, to ensure that you are signing in as a member of the University of Georgia.

1. Download the nkoda app on your own personal device(s); use the relevant App Store links below to download the app:


Please note that Mac users should follow this link to download the App

2. Once you’ve downloaded and opened the app, you’ll be presented with this screen. Click or tap the  button.


  • You will be provided with a search box where you will type  and search for "University of Georgia".

  • Two listings are presented.
    Select ‘"University of Georgia" with the large G
    (DO NOT use - University of Georgia SSO)



3. The next step will be for you to sign in with your UGA credentials . Simply enter your UGA  Username and Password as below, then click or tap ‘LOGIN’.


  • Following this, you’ll be asked to create your account details - you must use your UGA email address for this.


4. Once this is done, you’ll be presented with this screen. Check that you agree with the terms and conditions.


  • Lastly, click "Yes" that you want to continue as a member of the University of Georgia


5. You’re now logged in and ready to explore! You should see a green banner letting you know that ‘You are signed in as a member of the University of Georgia’. This means you have completed the process successfully! The first time you login a screen pops up allowing you to choose your instruments or interests so that the display is customized for you. You can either complete the form or simply close it for now. You can always customize the screen later.


6. Now you are at the main page. Here are a few things to note:

  • The green bar across the top indicates you are logged in. Please Log out when you are finished as UGA has a limited number of users that can use the service at one time.
  • The help button in the upper-left corner answers questions on using the service including how to use score offline and uploading scores. Note you canNOTprint or download scores--all viewing is done within the app. Taking screenshots will lock you out of the service.
  • Navigation buttons, including search are also in the upper-left corner. 
  • The Personalise button in the lower-right corner brings the customization page back to the screen.

Note: When you view your first score, you’ll be asked to verify your phone number for security reasons. Please note that we will not use your phone number for any other purpose.

You can view a VIDEO TOUR of the app explaining the many features of nkoda.
