Computer Accounts (CatNet)

If you do not already have a Linfield computer account, follow these steps:

1. Get a Linfield computer (CatNet) account. You will be given an user name (CatNet ID) and must type in your own password, write them down (case sensitive). When filling out the form, notice that you must have the slashes between the numbers of your birthday like the example below the text box. Select DCE as your campus regardless of where you attend classes. If you do not get a congratulations page, something has gone wrong, if you have trouble correcting the error, give OCE a call at 800-452-4176 x2451.
