Creating User Accounts

There are two ways for Extramural Administrators to create new user accounts:

  1. Select Administration | Accounts | Create Account to access the Create a New Account page (ADM1001).
  2. Enter new account information, noting the following:
  3. Click Submit to enter the information. The new user receives an "Account Created" notification email (sent to the email you provide in the Email field) containing the username and a randomly generated password. However, new users who are PIs receive an email that provides a link to a special form that the PI uses to confirm the information that NIH has regarding the PI's participation in grant applications, committee involvement, and training appointments. Only after this form is completed does the PI receive an email with the account information. See Verifying NIH Support for more information about confirming NIH information.
