Students can access myCommNet after the NetID is created. The NetID is created within two hours after student admission to the college.

The myCommNet Faculty role is automatically assigned and maintained for those who have taught recent courses (i.e., term ending within the past 365 days). Faculty role and NetID is created within two hours after course assignment in SSASECT. Faculty role is automatically revoked 365 days past end-of-term for last course assignment, or when the faculty member is flagged for removal via SWAINST.
Which student population can use myCommNet?
All students who have attended any of the 12 colleges since Fall 2005 term and any new students will receive myCommNet accounts with a student role (student tab). Students will continue to have a student role (student tab) in myCommNet for two years after their last attendance term. myCommNet student role (student tab) will be re-established when returning students are put through the Banner re-admission process.

Do I need to disable pop-up blockers?
Yes. Many of the systems accessed through myCommNet open in a new window and therefore require that pop-ups be allowed. In order to have the best myCommNet experience, please configure any pop-up blockers on your PC to include "my.commnet.edu" in the list of exceptions (i.e., to allow the pop-ups). Be sure to include all pop-up blockers associated with your browsers (e.g., Internet Explorer) and any other software packages installed on your PC (e.g., Norton, Yahoo, Google, AOL Toolbars, as they come with their own pop-up blockers). For more information, please refer to your software’s help resource to find out how to turn-off your pop-up blockers.
