All About NEST

NEST  is the primary web gateway for student and faculty/staff self-service. NEST will give you single-sign-on access for many current and upcoming products including Self-Service Banner (SSB). Students have access to NEST by logging on with your University NetID and password. New Students log in with their CWID and Pin provided in their acceptance letter.

To log in use your CWID in the “Name” field and your PIN in the “Password” field. When you complete your New Student Deposit you will receive an email in 1-2 business days with instructions on how to claim your University NetID and set your password, which you then use to log into NEST.

If your acceptance letter indicates that you are required to submit an admissions deposit, please log in using the instructions listed above. If your acceptance letter does not indicate that a deposit is required, please confirm your enrollment intentions in your New Student Portal. Once your deposit is submitted, or after you confirm enrollment, the acceptance letter in your New Student Portal will be updated to include your NetID and CWID within 2 business days.
