eRA Information: Issues Concerning Logging into eRA Commons and ASSIST

We’ve received some inquiries regarding problems logging into eRA Commons and ASSIST. In nearly all cases, the issues have centered on expired passwords. Our NIH eRA password policy requires passwords to be reset every 120 days. A recent security update forced a subset of our users to need to update their passwords outside of the normal 120 day timeframe.

If you or anyone at your organization is experiencing issues logging into eRA Commons or ASSIST, follow the online help for resetting passwords or review the Having Trouble Logging in to eRA Commons? troubleshooting document. Since some browser settings retain entered information, it is also advisable to clear your cache.

If you are still unable to access eRA Commons or ASSIST after following these recommendations, please contact the eRA Service Desk for assistance.
