NIH Commons Registration

For NIH applications PI’s must be registered* and/or affiliated with UF and have an updated personal profile in Commons. If the PI is not registered in Commons and/or affiliated with UF, the submitted Grants.gov application will not be accepted by NIH. Fellowship applicants must be registered and/or affiliated with UF in Commons with the PI role in order to submit a successful application. PI’s and Fellowship applicants must verify that all personal information in the Personal Profile tab in Commons is updated and accurate.

For awarded grants, a Commons username is also required for all individuals with a postdoctoral role who participate in a project for one person month or more. Please note that individuals with a postdoctoral role do not need a Commons username for application.

NIH has established undergraduate, graduate student, and project personnel roles in Commons. All graduate and undergraduate students who participate in project for at least one person month or more, should have the Commons username. Beginning October 2014, progress reports lacking graduate and undergraduate students Commons usernames on the personnel report will receive an error.

To initiate the Commons registration process visit the DSP Forms web page and complete the NIH Commons Registration Form.

* Note: The PI will receive an email with a link to verify prior NIH support. Once the NIH support is verified in Commons, the username is created. NIH will send an e-mail only when the PI has prior NIH support. Otherwise, the username is created immediately.
