External Collaborators


Using Incommon Federation to Login

If you are an external collaborator and a member of a different institution (Ex. John Hopkins University), then you may access GW REDCap using our Incommon Federation Sign On. Incommon Federation is a secure single sign-on that provides access to collaboration tools across institutions. Essentially, you can access GW REDCap using your institution credentials (username and password)

NOTE: Not every institution has this available. Below is how to check.

  • Access GW REDCap here
  • Choose "Select" under "Log On Using Incommon"
  • Start typing your institution name, if it appears, click it
  • Log in with your institution credentials

After logging in, please proceed to sign up for training and complete the Account Agreement Form.


*External collaborators will not have the rights to create or copy projects, you can only be added to projects.*


If your institution or organization is not on the list or does not work, please contact REDCap@gwu.edu for other options.
