The Holy Cross College email account is the primary source of communication between the college and the student. Students access their email through a webmail service, which is available from any computer with an internet connection. All students are to check their email on a regular basis and maintain their account for email delivery.
As part of the webmail account, students also receive a 25GB SkyDrive online storage account, online versions of Microsoft Office products, and more.
Portal accounts are issued to provide students access to their academic records, kept by the college’s administrative software package. Class schedules, grade reports, billing information, and much more are obtained through the Portal. Hard copies of schedules or grade reports will not be issues by the college. It is up to the student to obtain these via the Portal, which is available at all times.
Moodle is Holy Cross College's selected Learning Management System (LMS). If your professor is using Moodle, you can get your assignments and handouts online. You also may be able to see your grades, click on assigned web links, post assignments, communicate with your classmates with bulletin boards, chats, message board, or Wikis, view a course calendar, or use any other features of Moodle that the professor has set up for your particular course. Moodle is the "one-stop" web site for staying current with your classes. Some of the college's Student Services are on Moodle, too, such as the Library and the Center for Discernment & Preparation (internships and career preparation).

All students receive a photo identification card at the beginning of the academic year at the time of enrollment. This card has a library bar code on the back which is valid for the Holy Cross, Notre Dame, Saint Mary's and Bethel College libraries. It is also used for the cafeteria at Holy Cross and Saint Mary's Colleges and must be presented when students use the café for meals.
The student ID card is to be carried at all times. It is used as proof of a student's status at Holy Cross College and must be produced whenever requested by a college official. If a student loses their ID card a new ID card will be issued upon payment of a $25 fee. This fee must be paid at the Business Office.
Students will need their current ID card to purchase ND football tickets, to use the dining hall (at HCC or Saint Mary's), to use the library (at HCC, ND, SMC or Bethel), to use the Rockne Center and to attend any sporting or cultural function at ND or SMC. Only a CURRENT Holy Cross College ID is valid.
Telephone service is provided through the college's network via IP telephony. Students living in the residence halls may use their cellular phone as a primary contact with the college, or may request to use a college telephone. With a college telephone you receive your own line and a voicemail box that is integrated with your email account. Depending upon the accommodations, students may share a common phone. All requests and problems dealing with the IP phone service are to be directed to the IT Department for resolution. There is no charge for this service.
