Question

I am having trouble logging in to the SPOT Evaluation Website.

Answer

There are a few things you can do in this situation:

Also try logging in this way:

  1. Log in to MyVT with your PID and PID password.
  2. While still logged in, in the same browser, go to SPOT and click VT Login. Are you able to log in? If not, please note the error message and continue to step 3.
  3. Try logging out of MyVT and then close all browser windows.
  4. Open a new window and go to SPOT and click on VT Login. Type in your PID and PID password and click Login. Are you able to log in? If not, please note the error message and continue to step 5.
  5. Go to SPOT and click on Guest Login. On the next screen, type in your PID and PID password and click Login. Are you able to log in? If not, please note the error message and contact 4Help.
