What Is My User Name and Password?


All current enrolled students will be issued a new student account using the following format.

User Name
Your user name will consist of the first letter of your first name, the first four letters of your last name, and the last four digits of your student ID number.

Your account is disabled until you have activated and set up your password.  This can be done by going to the following link:

Example: a fictional student named Sam Masters with a student ID number 0006789 is going to activate his account so he can login to one of our SCC online services. The student’s user name would be smast6789 and his password would be whatever he chose while activating his account.
This user name is also used to derive your student email address, for example smast6789[at]student.southwesterncc[dot]edu This email account should be used for all college-related electronic communications.

You will use your new student account for the following:

  • mySCC
  • Student email
  • Blackboard
