Equivalent to this username is your personal number that can be found on your student identification card under your photograph. Should you experience any issues with your password, please visit the CAS website, where you can request a new password and get more information about Central Authentication Service (CAS).
If you are a new applicant who has not previously studied at CU and have never submitted an application for study in the past (regardless of success), you will be asked to register prior to submitting your application. In order to do so, you will be asked to provide a registration email address to which an email will be sent containing a link to a page where you will be able to set up your new password. You will need to use this email address and password in the course of the whole application process, as only under these credentials all of your current applications will be displayed. However, these credentials cannot be used for logging into other modules of the Student Information System (SIS).
Whenever you log in again after having submitted your application, you will see a list of all applications you have submitted under your name displayed in the upper right-hand corner, in the “My applications” section. If you use a different email address than the one provided during registration, only the “New applicant” option will be displayed in the upper right-hand corner and the “My applications” button will not be available.

Please do not create a new application under a different e-mail address, as this complicates the identification not only for the system but also for the employees of the Admission Procedure Department.
