Username and Password Information

You need a personal user account to log in to the NIH eRA Commons. This requires a unique username (from 6 to 20 characters) and a password (minimum length of 6 characters). The username and password can be any combination of letters and numbers.

If you forget your password, the NIH eRA Commons provides a capability for you to request that your password be reset. In this case, a new password is generated and sent to you at the email address contained in your user profile.

Note: The password is case-sensitive.

  1. Access the NIH eRA Commons Home page as described in Logging In.
  2. Click the Forgot Password? hyperlink to open the Reset Password page (FRW0002).
  3. In the User ID field, type your username and press Tab to move to the Email Address field.
  4. Type your email address and press Enter or click Submit. The system returns you to the Home page and displays a confirmation message indicating that your password has been reset.
