MCC Login Information

WebAdvisor ~ Blackboard ~ Student Email

Setting Up Username and Password

All MCC students will need login information in order to access certain student resources. Login conventions will be the same for all systems listed below. Students will need to know their WebAdvisor User ID to login to these services.

For security, once you have successfully logged in to any resource, always change your password!

Obtain your User ID and Username:

MCC User IDs will be automatically generated. It is possible that your User ID has changed since the last time you were a student at MCC. It is important that you go to WebAdvisor to obtain your User ID. You will need this User ID for WebAdvisor, Blackboard and your MCC Student Email account.

To find your User ID, click the WebAdvisor link on the MCC home page (http://www.montgomery.edu), then choose the What’s My User ID? link at the bottom right. On this screen you will enter your Last Name and either your SSN or your Student ID number. Do NOT enter both numbers. Click Submit, then write down your User ID and click OK. On the WebAdvisor Welcome screen, click the Set/Reset Password link at the bottom right. If you are a new student, click the Set My Password link or click Reset My Password if you do not remember your password. Your password will be sent via email. Be sure to choose an accessible email from the drop down menu. 

Once you have received your password, you can use your User ID and password to log into WebAdvisor. The first time you login, you will be notified that your password is expired.
