Accessing the eRIC System
To access eRIC, use your Georgetown NetID and password. If you are a MedStar employee, do not use your MedStar user ID. If you are a MedStar Georgetown employee and are unsure whether you have a NetID, check the Georgetown University (GU) directory at http://contact.georgetown.edu/.
Individuals that are not affiliated with GU including MedStar employees who do not have a GU appointment or other official relationship need to apply to become a GU Sponsored University Associate (SUA) to access eRIC. If you don’t have a SUA account or your SUA account expired, please visit https://uis.georgetown.edu/accounts/sua or email email@example.com for information to apply or reactivate your SUA account.

I know my password and it works for other GU applications, but I cannot log in to eRIC…
If you experience difficulties logging in, but your NetID password works for other Georgetown applications, one of the following may help:
- Attempt to refresh your browser cache by visiting http://www.refreshyourcache.com/en/home/ and following the instructions for your browser. This can sometimes clear out old versions of your password that the browser is automatically populating.
- If you have already enrolled in Password Station, visit https://password.georgetown.edu and answer stored hint questions to create a new password.
- Contact eRIChelp@georgetown.edu.
