Important Information Regarding SCC Passwords

Effective June 1, 2015, all students passwords were reset!

SCC is pleased to announce a very important change happening on campus. With this change, you will only be responsible for one password for all of our systems, and you will also be able to save your work on any computer and it will be there when you log in again.

About SCC Logons

All students will logon to SCC wireless, campus computers and Web-based services, such as Canvas, SCC Connection, mySCC and Office 365 using their college assigned email address or the username preceding the @ of the email address.

This username is composed of the first letter of your first and last names and a six digit number assigned by the college. If you are logging into SCC Connection, use this username as your login. For all other systems, you MUST use your entire email address.

For example, Stevie Nicks would have a college assigned email address like:

Stevie would log into SCC Connection only using sn123456 and her password. For all other systems, she would use her entire email address ( and her password.

You can lookup your college assigned email address if you don't know it.

About SCC Passwords

Your initial SCC password will be:

First initials of your first and last name

A period “.”

All seven digits of your Student ID (including leading zeroes)

For example, if your name was Stevie Nicks and Student ID was 0426784, your initial password would be: sn.0426784

Your SCC password protects your information. In order to protect such information, the continued use of default passwords (those passwords used when the account is created) is discouraged. This can be accomplished by using the password tool and directions found immediately below.

If you are on campus, you may also login to any student computer, press Control + Alt + Delete and select "Change a password” on the computer screen.
