***************************************************

The regular link above works for most users. However, students can register for an individual account that enables personalization features such as Folders. This account expires on a semester basis and students need to re-register if they want to continue using the individual account.

To register for a Checkpoint individual account:

  • Go to http://ria.thomson.com/cploginids. This link is only accessible from a computer on the campus IP range (e.g., computers in the library or any OIT lab).
  • Fill out the registration form. If the link doesn't work, change to a different browser (e.g., Chrome).
  • After you “register”, you will receive an e-mail with your Checkpoint username and temporary password (the usernames are fairly long and can’t be changed.) The e-mail contains a link to Checkpoint. (This normally takes less than 10 minutes.)
  • Go to Checkpoint using the link in the e-mail you receive or go to: http://www.checkpoint.riag.com.
  • Enter your User Name provided above. User Names and passwords are not case sensitive.
  • Click the Login button. You will go through New User Setup screens, including a prompt to change your password. New passwords must be 7-20 characters and at least one letter and one number.
  • Once this process is finished, you can now access Checkpoint from any computer that has internet access (it does not need to be connected to the university) at http://www.checkpoint.riag.com
  • The account will expire after the default semester. Users need to re-register to gain access.
  • If you have any problems, please call Customer Support at 1-800-431-9025.
