CAS (Central Authentication Service)
CAS requires users to authenticate themselves before accessing protected files or applications on the web. Users authenticate themselves by logging into CAS with their VCU eID and password. Once a user is authenticated, he/she will be able to access any VCU CAS enabled application within their level of permission. For security, CAS resets when the browser is closed. Popular VCU applications that require a CAS login include myVCU Portal, events calendar, and myMail for students.
