Readmitted Student Checklist

Now that you’ve been accepted to Montclair State, your next step is to enroll as a full-fledged Red Hawk.

Use the checklist below for guidance.

Step 1
Check to see if your NetID is still active

Your NetID was your last name, first initial and a number. If you remember what it was please login to NEST to verify and your password has been reset to your six digit birthday (MM/DD/YY). If that does not work you will need to reclaim your NetID using your CWID # located on your acceptance letter and PIN which is also your six digit birthday.

Your NET ID opens your school email as well as access to Canvas for class assignments.

Step 2
Check your Registration Holds

To determine whether or not you have a registration hold on your student record, please log in to NEST and click ‘register for classes’, select ‘view your holds’ from the Registrar’s Office Tools box.

Please be reminded that all registration holds must be satisfied before you will be able to register for the current semester.

Step 3
Make an appointment with an advisor to obtain your Registration Pin

You will need a registration PIN in order to register for classes. Please contact an advisor in your current major or the departments secretary/program administer for help if you do not know or remember who your advisor was. If further assistance is needed you can contact the Center for Leadership and Engagement for assistance at 973-655-4162.

If you are being readmitted from academic suspension, furlough or probation you must make a one hour appointment with Maureen Branca before you will be allowed to register for classes.

Step 4
Review your Degree Audit and Register for Classes

In order to see what classes you still need completed please log in to NEST scroll down and under ‘Advisor Resources’ select ‘Degree Works’ enter your CWID number and hit enter. Once you have decided on what to take then go back to the NEST tab and select ‘Register For Classes’ tab at the top of the page.

If help is needed please reach out to your advisor or the Center for Leadership and Engagement for assistance.
