Central Login ID and Password

Request Service Provide Feedback Report Incident

A Central Login Account is a centralized identity that consists of a Central Login ID (username), Password, and identifying information about a University member or group. Central Login IDs and passwords are the credentials used for accessing most University online services.

Central Login Accounts for most University members are created automatically based on information provided from various identity sources, such as Registrarial Services (for students) and Human Resources (for staff and faculty).  Central Login Accounts for other role types, such as organizations and sponsored users, are created upon requested.  For more information regarding obtaining or forfeiting a Central Login ID, see Understanding Your Username. For more information regarding passwords and how to change or retrieve forgotten passwords, see Understanding Your Password.

If you wish to Change Your Password to a new or more secure password you can, as long as you know the old password.

Subscribe to Password Insurance in order to be able to reset your password if you forget it.

There is no charge for this service as it is provided by CCS.
