Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do I receive my college email on my smartphone?

A. For the best email performance we recommend using the “Outlook” app from Microsoft on your mobile device, which can be found in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. We do not recommend using the built-in mail software on your mobile device.

Q. Does the college provide Microsoft Office, Windows, the Adobe Creative Suite, or any other software to students?

A. The College provides the Microsoft Office suite of products to students free of charge for installation on up to five personal devices. Click here for more information.

Q. Does the college provide antivirus software? What packages are supported on campus?

A. The college does not provide antivirus software. Our campus network access software recognizes all major packages, including the popular Symantec and McAfee. We recommend downloading one of the many excellent and completely free antivirus packages from vendors such as Microsoft, avast, AVG, and Avira. Recent Microsoft operating systems include Defender, which is adequate antivirus protection. Properly working antivirus software is required of Windows computers to gain network access.

Q. How do I change my password?

A. You can change your password through Microsoft 365. After you’re logged in, click the round icon in the upper-right corner with your initials on it and choose “My Account” from the menu that appears. Now clock the “Manage security & privacy” button to find the link for changing your password.

If you’ve forgotten your password and aren’t able to login to Microsoft 365, use the “Forgot my password” link on the login page.
