SLU Affiliated Users:

If you have never logged into Openwater, you will need to set up an Openwater account. To do this please click "My Account" in the top right of the page. When creating your account, you NEED to use your firstname.lastname@slu.edu or firstname.lastname@health.slu.edu to sign up. Once you have entered in the necessary information, click "Register."

For returning users, olease login using the Email/Password fields on the left side of your screen. Please use a SLU email address with the following format: firstname.lastname@slu.edu or firstname.lastname@health.slu.edu. If users have received an email from SLU RSG or Openwater with a new Openwater password, that Openwater password can be used to login the first time.  The Openwater password can be changed using the Change Password function on the Openwater homepage.

If users have not received such an email, or their Openwater password is not working, keep the email login with the following format: firstname.lastname@slu.edu or firstname.lastname@health.slu.edu, and use the Lost Password? function to have the system reset the Openwater password. Users will receive an email with a link to reset their Openwater password. Note that Openwater passwords are not the same as your SLUnet passwords.

All user applications and evaluation content will be accessible, even if users have used a different login email in the past. 

*Please Note* - Do not attempt to sign in using a SLUnet ID. For example, Jane Smith will sign in with jane.smith@slu.edu or jane.smith@health.slu.edu, NOT with jsmith or jsmith1. 

For Non-SLU Affiliated Applicants/Reviewers:

Please login using the Email/Password fields on the left side of the screen.
If you do not have an account, please click "My Account" on the top right to create your user account.
