WebEx Information Sessions

While our campus is closed due to the coronavirus, the Office of Admissions has created online WebEx Information sessions. Sign up for a session at our Campus Tours & Events page.

Enrollment Steps

Your assigned 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 Office 365 E-mail account. It is imperative that you set up both accounts to receive important information regarding your progress.

You will need your initial Net ID and Password to establish your account. Your initial Net ID and Password format is available at myCommNet.

Net ID Format

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 Format

  1. First 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

You are encouraged to complete the online free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using the TRCC school code “009765”.

The first step is to create a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID. Your FSA ID is made up of your user name and password and is used to confirm your identity when accessing your financial aid information. After completing your FSA ID, you can complete the financial aid application at: www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Important information about your financial aid will be sent to your student e-mail and myCommNet accounts.*
