What is my Gmail ID and password?

Your G-mail ID is your MySite ID followed by “@student.cccd.edu”. Once you log into your MySite account, you can click on the e-mail icon or G-mail link to access your Google mail student account. Your Student email address is supplied to your instructors automatically when you register for their class.

You can now access your student email at Student Gmail.

Why doesnít my Gmail work?

Once you log into your MySite account, you can click on the e-mail icon or G-mail link to access your Google mail student account. This email ID is supplied to your instructors automatically when you register for their class.

If nothing happens when you click on the G-mail link, you may have your pop-up blocker turned on blocking this link. Make sure you allow pop-ups for this site.

If you get the Google login page, contact technical support. Your G-mail account set up may have been damaged and will need to be corrected.

If you get a message that says “Invalid Email” when you click the link, you may have CCCD employment information that blocked the creation of a student G-mail account. If you are not a current employee, contact Technical Support to request a student G-mail account.

Employees and former employees do not automatically get student G-mail accounts. If you are a current employee with an employee email, you will need to use the OWA link. You do not have G-mail. If you are a current employee without employee email, contact your manager to request either an employee email or a student G-mail account.

Why doesnít my instructorís email work?

If your instructor’s email is followed by “@student.cccd.edu” or appears to not be working, inform the instructor.

The “@student.cccd.edu” is an invalid email for instructors and most likely their employee email set up is missing. The instructor will need to contact their college IT department to get this corrected.

Many of our instructor’s work and/or teach at more than one college so it could show an email address for Orange Coast College while teaching at Coastline. They may also have valid email accounts at more than one college. This should not block your communication with them. If there seems to be a problem with your instructor’s email, writing down the specific error message you received will help your instructor and their IT department to correct the problem.

If the instructor has multiple emails within our district, the instructor’s email displayed on the MySite schedule may be different from the email displayed on their course website. Please follow the instructor’s directions as to which email to use for your course.
