Student Information Portals

Your Columbia-Greene student account enables you to use one username and password for the services and resources we offer.

If you are a new or returning student, the College will send an e-mail to the personal email address you provided in your application. The email will contain the information you need to get started. Save this information, as it will be necessary if you need to reset your password or recover your account. You will also be required to set up multi-factor authentication. For more information, please review the Multi-factor Authentication FAQ.

If necessary, reset your account password using the username we sent in your initial account email.

Banner Self Service provides accepted applicants and students with a web interface to their personal records at Columbia-Greene Community College.

Register for classes, view and make adjustments to your class schedule, check on your financial aid history, pay your bill or make a payment plan, look at your current grades or unofficial transcript, check course availability, and be sure that your demographic information is up to date – all without having to visit a single office on campus! Your information is kept secure via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) – you must log in with a User ID and password and may access only your own records. The User ID and password are the same as your student account used for email and other resources.

Login to Office 365 to access your email and several popular Microsoft Office products right in your web browser.
