Username & Password
Each individual is assigned a username that is common for all primary systems; the username is the first part of the assigned email address — everything before the @ sign. Employee email accounts end in @ccad.edu
Alice Schille would be aschille — unless someone else had already been assigned that address, like Andrew Schille. In that case, Alice would be .1 or .2, or so on. Employee usernames do not end with a period followed by a digit unless the address has already been assigned.
Once assigned, an individual’s username remains the same, even if their role in the college changes. For example, if a student graduates and is hired to teach, they will retain the same username they had as a student, even though new employee accounts will be established.
If an individual legally changes their last name, such as in the case of marriage or divorce, proof of the change must be submitted to the Human Resources or the One-Stop Student Services offices to have their name changed in our systems and a new username assigned.
One Default Password
To improve password security, passwords must be at least 8 characters in length and include at least one letter, one number, and one punctuation mark. We recommend that you change your password at least once a year. If you forget your password, we can reset it to the default.
The following accounts are connected to one another and share the same username and password. If you change your email password, for example, it will change for all of these systems:
- Employee Email
- Campus Wireless Network
- Academic Computers
online learning management system, powered by Moodle
- Faculty Folders on Orion
network folders on the campus network for sharing information with students
- Online Course Evaluations
The following systems are stand-alone systems and are not connected to any other system. Changing the password in one system, for example, will not change it for any other system.
- Self Service
Tied directly to PowerCampus (our student information system), Self Service provides online access to course schedules, class rosters (lists), required materials posting, and online grading.
online ePortfolio system for faculty and students
- CCAD Emergency Alert System
register to receive notification in the event of a campus emergency sent to your mobile phone, email, and/or text messaging.
Telephone & Voicemail
As a full-time faculty member, you are also assigned a phone number with Voicemail. Please take the time to set up your voicemail account—entering a unique password and recording both your name and an outgoing greeting.
