Frequently Asked Questions

I don't have a College ID

You will need to visit East Campus Atrium to have a College ID printed for you.

I don't know my Student ID / NetID

Your Student ID consists of just the eight digits of your NetID.

e.g. 12345678@student.commnet.edu

I lost my College ID, what do I do?

You will need to get a replacement College ID. Once you replace the lost/stolen card, you will need to register the new card using the same process as before.

I don't have my College ID with me, what do I do?

If your College ID isn’t lost or stolen, but you just don’t have it with you, you may still sign into a printer/copier manually to print, copy, and scan.

I see a balance on the screen when I go to print, what is it?

You may see a dollar amount associated with your account when you go to print. This is not an actual monetary value, but simply a representation of your print quota.

All students have a 400 page/month print quota. This will renew automatically at the first of each month. If you exceed your print quota, you can visit the IT office to have it manually reset.

I accidentally registered my credit card or other ID card

If you have accidentally registered a different card other than your College ID, you may simply go through the same registration steps using your College ID to update your account.

Only one card is allowed to be associated with your account at any given time, so you may always be able to re-register a new card.

Registering your College ID Card

You may register your existing College ID card on any badge reader enabled printer/copier on campus.

This process only needs to be done once per ID card.
You are simply associating your College ID to your NetID so that future printing, scanning, and copying can be accomplished quicker.

Hold your College ID over the badge reader until you hear a beep.

It is recommended to keep your College ID by itself when registering. Remove your ID from a wallet or bundle of credit cards or other smart cards. You do not want to inadvertently register another type of card other than your College ID. But if you do, just repeat these steps using your College ID.
