Special Instructions for Internet Explorer Users

In most instances, those users who access the Kuali system with the Internet Explorer browser need to turn on the “Compatibility View” feature and add “usc.edu” as both a trusted website and a Compatibility View website. Some Internet Explorer users have found that their previous settings are not always retained over time and may need to be reset occasionally. Please check the following settings in the Tools menu of Internet Explorer:

  • Ensure that a check mark appears next to Compatibility View in the Tools menu, indicating that it is selected.
  • Select Compatibility View settings in the Tools menu and confirm that usc.edu appears in the list of websites added to Compatibility View.
  • Select Internet Options in the Tools menu, click the Security tab of the Internet Options window, and ensure that https://*.usc.edu appears in the Trusted Sites list.

NOTE: Microsoft stopped providing security updates and technical support for its Internet Explorer browser in January 2016. In order to ensure that you are up to date on security enhancements, Internet standards compliance, and overall browser capability, you should consider switching to one of the following browsers:

  • Mozilla’s Firefox
  • Apple’s Safari (for Mac computers only)
  • Microsoft’s Edge
  • Google’s Chrome
