Congratulations on your acceptance to Montclair State University! We have prepared this checklist to ensure you have an easy transition to university life. Please complete all steps and contact us if you have any questions.
Your Campus-Wide ID (CWID) and PIN are your keys to becoming a Montclair State University student. These were assigned to you when you were accepted to the University. You will find your CWID and PIN in your acceptance letter.
Your NETID is your Montclair State University email account login ID and your ID for other web-based University systems. Your NETID and instructions for how to activate it will be emailed to you shortly after your acceptance.
Once your NETID has been activated, you will begin receiving communications to your Montclair State University email account from your professor(s) and other University staff. To log in, visit gmail.com, enter your NETID@montclair.edu, use your NETID password and click “Sign in”.
The University Health Center oversees all mandatory health requirements for student enrollment. Within 48 hours of activating your NetID (step 2 of the checklist), you will be able to access the portal to upload your vaccination records. Please review the Student COVID-19 Vaccination Policy Effective Summer 2022 and Beyond for more information. Don’t delay! You may be de-registered from your courses if your vaccination records aren’t received by posted deadlines.
