"How do I log in?"
To log in, simply use your current NetID and password.
A NetID is: BannerID@student.commnet.edu (ex. email@example.com)
Password for returning students: The 8-character password you currently use
Password for new students: The initial password for all new NetIDs will be based on a combination of personal information (birth date and social security number). Specifically, the following three items will make up the initial password:
- 1st three characters of birth month (with first letter capitalized)
- Ampersand character - &
- Last 4 digits of Social Security Number
So, for a user with a birth date on 10/24/79 and social security number of 123-45-6789, the initial password would be: Oct&6789. NOTE: You will be forced to change your password the first time you logon and select a security question.
