Official NVCC Student Email Accounts

As a Connecticut Community College student, you have access to your own .edu college email account!

Beginning Jan. 1, 2013, this will become your primary email address for all official college communications.

Your email address

All current and new students will have an official Office 365 account and email address: prefix@mail.ct.edu.

The ‘prefix’ will consist of the first letter of your first name followed by the first four letters of your last name and then a four-digit random number.

Example: jsmit1234@mail.ct.edu

Logging into your email

There are two ways to access Office 365:

  1. Log into myCommNet and click on the link to Office 365.
  2. Access your email directly: portal.microsoftonline.com

You will login in to Office 365 with your Net ID and password. View step-by-step instructions.

Forwarding your email

Don't want to deal with another inbox? Forward your NVCC email to your personal account and continue to receive all of your email in one place. Here's how.
