CU System Accounts

CU System Administration has several different user accounts used to access different resources. UIS is working to reduce this number and use the CU System ID for access to all resources.

CU System ID

What is a CU System ID? 

A CU System ID is the user account and password for CU System Administration users and affiliates. CU System Administration uses Active Directory for its primary account management. This account is used to access a variety of resources including the CU System portal, network, email, laptops, VPN and many other systems.

How do I get my an account?
  • System Administration employees: New employees will have an account created automatically.
  • System Administration POIs and campus Affiliates: please fill out the CU System ID request form for this account access.
How do I reset my password?

See the directions on the UIS Service Desk's How-to guides under Password Reset.

CU PeopleSoft ID

What is a CU PeopleSoft ID?

A CU PeopleSoft ID is a directory account used by IT professionals and some business office super users to log into specific PeopleSoft resources that cannot use the CU System ID or campus credentials. Examples include Application Designer, Excel to CI functionality, PeopleSoft Test Framework, etc. A CU PeopleSoft ID is NOT required for general access to PeopleSoft applications. Normal access is federated and uses campus credentials.

At this time, this is available only for the HCM and FIN applications.

Who needs a CU PeopleSoft ID?

Only certain IT professionals and business office super users need a CU PeopleSoft ID.
