eRA Information: ACTION REQUIRED  Password Changes and Upcoming Password Expiration for Accounts

Friday, February 10, 2012


Hurry, don’t delay, time is literally ticking away on your eRA Commons password!  In October the eRA Commons moved to establishing a new NIH/Agency Log-in process.  As a result of this change, passwords for the accounts within eRA Commons were given an expiration date of February 22, 2012.


To avoid the lines, you will want to change your password as soon as possible.

Do it now and enjoy these awesome benefits:

·         No waiting!  All lines are open!

·         Avoid future regret and disappointment!

·         Get a FREE confirmation message on your computer screen when you have successfully changed your password!

·         Ensure access to your account – especially if you have a submission in progress or are planning a submission in the near future.


Are you new to eRA Commons? Have you recently changed your password? If your account was created, or you have changed your password since October 08, 2011, then you are OFF THE HOOK! You need not change your password.


Please be sure you review the password policy.

This password policy and login procedures can  also be reviewed in the eRA Commons User Guide.
