Creating an Account

All USC faculty, staff and students may request a USCeRA user account by contacting their SAM Administrator. If you need a user account and are not a student or employee of USC, please contact the faculty member you will be working with on the proposal and request that an affiliate account is created for you by the principal investigator’s department. Once the affiliate account is created, please notify your SAM Administrator that you need a USCeRA account.

To log in, visit the USCeRA login page, click “Login to USCeRA,” enter your network username and password (these are the credentials that you use to log into your university email and other systems) and click the grey “Login” button.

If you need assistance with USCeRA, email USCeRA@mailbox.sc.edu or contact your SAM Administrator.
