This instruction explains how to authenticate to the Central Authentication Service (CAS) of the Warsaw University of Technology.

You should have received this number from the International Office of the Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology.

Polish citizens have a national-wide ID numbers called PESEL and they provide these numbers whenever asked for authentication. Erasmus students, on contrary, usually don’t have PESEL numbers so they should provide their ID numbers assigned by the University instead of PESEL.

Usage instructions

You should provide your ID number (eleven digits long – starting from 007, like James Bond) when you are asked either for Username or PESEL by the Authentication Service.

  • Your password

For secure authentication (a proper one) you need also use a password apart from an ID number or Username. Which is also important, you should use your own password which you have invented on your own. This password will replace an initial password settled by the USOS registration procedure when your account was created by the International Office.

Note

You must reset your initial password and set a new one invented by you. To do this you should complete the following steps.

  1. Initiate the resetting password procedure to get your individual link
  2. Set your own password using the link which you received in step 1
