How to set up and access your OCCC student email account
Type in portal.office.com in a web browser page. Click on the username space and input your new email address as follows:
The #’s are the last 3 digits of your student ID. If you have a hyphenated last name, eliminate the hyphen when inputting your last name. (Example: Bob Jones-Smith would be email@example.com)
The temporary password is the first two letters of your first name (first letter capitalized), first two letters of your last name (first letter capitalized) and birthday as MMDDYYYY. (Example: Bob Jones, born June 6, 1974 would be BoJo06061974). You will be prompted to change your password once you log in.
You are now logged onto the main page which allows you access to various Office Suite Programs (Excel, Word, etc.). With your OCCC email comes a subscription to Office 365-the cloud version-which you will be able to access once you have logged into your email account.
Use the mail icon to obtain your emails from the College. This is the official means of communication with the College so it is important that you are prompt in accessing this new login. Email recipients will be expected to read all communication related to OCCC business and when necessary take action as a result of communication from the college. It is expected that students will monitor their college email accounts often to receive the most up-to-date information from the college. Note: Credit students must also monitor their PCC email account.
You may only use college issued computer accounts (email, Canvas, myOCCC) that are given to you. You may not use another individual’s account, or attempt to do so. You are expected to make a reasonable effort to protect your passwords and secure your computer accounts against unauthorized use or access.
