Enrollment Steps

Your assigned banner/student ID number and Community College e-mail address are noted on your acceptance letter. You will need this information to establish your myCommNet and student e-mail accounts. It is imperative that you set up both accounts to receive important information regarding your progress.
Set up your myCommNet and Student E-mail account

Net ID:

Username: Student ID (without the “@”)
Domain: @student.commnet.edu

Example: A student with a BannerID of @87654321, will have the following NetID:

87654321@student.commnet.edu

Password:

  1. 1st three characters of birth month (with first letter capitalized)
  2. Ampersand character – &
  3. Last 4 digits of Social Security Number

So, for a user with a birth date on 10/24/79 and a social security number of 123-45-6789, then the initial password would be:

Oct&6789

Course Placement

Non-degree seeking students may be waived from prerequisite courses when they present one or more of the following documents showing the prerequisite has been met:

  • an unofficial transcript from a U.S. college;
  • a High School transcript;
  • SAT scores and/or ACT scores (if available); or
  • a previously taken Accuplacer placement test for English and/or math at any Connecticut community college.

These documents are needed to help advisers assist you in selecting appropriate courses.

How to Submit Required Documents

Upload documents to your application portal or electronically from your high school’s Counseling Office using Naviance.

Please note: when uploading your documents to your application portal, PDF files are the preferred file type, however, JPG & JPEG  are also acceptable. HEIC is the image format for newer Apple phones and is not an unacceptable file type, as it cannot be viewed from our software.

A real time list of missing supplemental items and documents can be viewed by logging into your application portal. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can reset it on the sign-in page.

In-Person drop-off is not an option while the College building is closed due to the Coronavirus.

Note: due to the coronavirus, Accuplacer testing has been suspended for the time being.
