Student computer accounts

The Charles Unversity has come to a united information system. One of its benefits is unification of authentication data within frame of the Charles University so that CU students have universal access to all information systems of the University using the only one computer account now. These computer accounts are administrated by Charles University Authentication Service or also Central Authentication Service (CAS) in Prague and are created automatically for each student of the faculty.

Universal access using only one computer account through the mediation of CAS

A CU student can use this computer account to access Study information system (SiS) available at the internet address – In these days the following parts of SiS are used: overview of subjects, subjects registration, view of a student‘s credits and exams, applying for exams, reading of SiS messages with the possibility to redirect them to a student’s private e-mail, transcript of study obligations fulfilling.
This computer account can be used for logging into PCs in the faculty study rooms, classrooms and computer testing rooms. Students can also use these accounts to authenticate for various electronic online courses and for non-public information on web pages of the faculty.

For access to Study Information System (SiS)

For logging into PCs in study rooms, classrooms

Faculty students should keep in the Study Information System (SiS) a functioning e-mail address so as to be able to check incoming study information. Students, which have not a e-mail at their disposal, can apply for creation of the faculty electronic mailbox.

Incoming students of the first year obtain their computer account names and temporary (intial) passwords together with their Student identity cards in the Centre for Studies in English. Expiration time for these temporary passwords is 5 days! In this way obtained temporary (initial) passwords should be changed by students on web pages CAS (address before they expire. In order to change your password on web pages CAS, you should do so after authenticating by your initial password.

Expiration of a initial password

It is possible to reset your password without authentication, only on the basic of giving your personal data, but then you set a new password which is a bit „weaker“ than a password gained by the former way. Passwords set by the latter way (called „non-verified“) are considered less trustworthy and you lose access to some applications. The latter way of setting a new password is intended for those who have forgotten their passwords and need access to some applications as soon as possible (to SiS, but not to PCs in the faculty study rooms, for example). For additional information see here.

Non-verified password

The faculty’s registration authority for issuing initial temporary passwords will be located at faculty’s Centre for Studies in English. The initial password issued by faculty’s registration authority is valid for 5 days and should be used for setting a new password at the address before expires.
