Additional Notes and Help Information

  • If you do NOT see a COCC email address listed on the page you are likely not currently assigned a COCC email address.
    • For information about how student email accounts are assigned review the information posted in Account Creation.
  • If you do NOT see your initial password listed or your initial password is shown as all question marks (?????) your initial password is unknown for one reason or another.
    • Most likely this is due to your account needing to be reactivated after your status with COCC appeared to indicate you were no longer a current student.
    • Try using the same password you had when you last attended COCC.
  • If you have changed your initial password for any of your accounts it will not be updated here.
    • Once you change an account password you are the only one who knows what it is.
    • For Blackboard you will need to reset it following the reset instructions on the Bb login page
    • For computers, wireless and email if you have not set up COCC PC/Email Password Reset you will need to stop by the Pioneer computer lab during their business hours or call 541-383-7719 to have it reset.
