Account & Password Information

About SCC Logons

All students will log on 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.
