Can I use my single username and password on all systems?

No. The single username and password applies only to systems listed on the login examples web page.

Can I log into one system and gain access to all systems?

No. Even though the username and password is the same for each of these systems, you must enter the username and password whenever you want to access one of them. Logging into one does not give you access to all.

If I change my password when I log into a campus computer, do I need to change it at the Password Reset?

I don't know my username. Do I have one and how do I find it?

  • New Students who register over the phone via Contact Center (531-622-5231) or register in person at a campus will be emailed a letter that contains their username and a temporary password. This letter will be mailed out 3 to 5 business days after the date of enrollment. Username can also be retrieved online 24 hours after registration by visiting MCC's Password Reset.

I can't find my username, my information doesn't match? What can I do?

You must verify your identity to find your username. When you enter the verification information, your student ID number (or Social Security number), last name, birth date, street address, and ZIP Code, it must match the information in our College database.

If it doesn't, you must contact Contact Center (531-622-5231) or stop by Student Services to have this information corrected. Once you have updated your information, you should be able to successfully find your username.
