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

Complete the CT State Community College – New Student Online Orientation to get your certificate of completion. This orientation will help you better understand your next steps as a student, and the many opportunities, resources, and activities within our college community.

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

Meet with an Advisor

Before you can register, you must schedule an appointment with an advisor. Beginning April 2022, go to www.threerivers.edu/appointments to choose a date and time to meet with an advisor in person, on the phone, or virtually, or visit our Information Desk at the Clock Tower entrance to make an appointment.

To contact the Advising Office email advising@threerivers.edu using your college-issued student email account and include your name, phone number and your Three Rivers’ Student ID number.

Course Placement

All incoming students will be assessed for math and English skills using their High School transcript, SAT scores and/or ACT scores (if available). Please bring a copy of your in-progress or final transcript to the advising meeting, because these documents help advisers assist students in selecting appropriate courses. Students who have graduated high school over 5 years ago or would like to schedule an Accuplacer Placement test to assess their course placement, can discuss with their advisor.
