NetID :

Do not know your NetID? Click here to find out.

Password: The same password to log on to a campus computer at any of 12 Connecticut community colleges.

If you have never logged on to a campus computer, your initial password is a combination of your first 3 letters of birth month (capitalize the first letter), & (shift+7), and last four – digit of your social security number.

For example, if you are born in April and the last four – digit of your social security number is 4575, then your initial password is Apr&4575 (case sensitive).

After you have logged on with the initial password, you will be prompted to change to a new password. The new password MUST have 8 or more characters and satisfy 3 of the 4 rules as follows:

* Upper case
* Lower case
* Numbers
* Special character

One example of a new password is Flower19 (case sensitive). Remember; do not use your name or birthday in the new password.
