Getting Techical Help


Who can request help?

Typically, your institution’s authorized CollegeNET contacts should request help from our Help Desk by clicking the Submit a Request button on the top right. If we receive a support request from an unknown contact, we may need to verify their identity with a previously authorized contact at your institution for security. When your institution’s contact emails us with a problem, our Help Desk staff assigns a help ticket number that stays open until the problem is resolved. This enables us to have immediate access to the history of your issue and provides you with a point of contact for discussing the issue.
