After the system upgrades performed several weeks ago, we have some minor changes to Cayuse to announce:

  • Cayuse is now connected to Illinois State’s CentralLogin single sign-on system. You will now log into Cayuse with your ISU ULID and password. If you already have a browser session logged into CentralLogin, you will not need to re-enter your password to use Cayuse.
  • In addition, there is an additional landing page when you go to the Cayuse website. Clicking the “Cayuse 424” link will take you to the regular Cayuse overview page.

Please take this opportunity to update your bookmarks/favorites. The URL should be Anything after the .com may lead to an erroneous “Cayuse424 is Currently Offline” message.

These upgrades were performed in advance of a major system upgrade from the current Cayuse 424 to system to a Cayuse SP system. The Cayuse SP upgrade will have more flexibility in the routing process, provide researchers more information about the status of their proposals and awards, and consolidate other grant-related activities (e.g., contingency funding requests) in one system. Cayuse SP will take effect on July 1, 2014. We will be providing more information, including training, in the coming months.
