How do I log in to my college email?
When starting out, it is easy to get overwhelmed with all the information you need to know. One way to get organized is to log in to your email early and check it often for updates from the school and from your instructors. But where do you go to find your email?
Log in to your mySCC portal and click on the Gmail button on the homepage. (Yes! Your SCC email is a Gmail account!) The email button is at the top of the homepage on the left.
If you aren't sure how to get to mySCC, check out this mySCC article in the knowledge base:
Hint: start from the Shawnee College Homepage.
The email log in page will display a blank field where should enter the full email address you were given by the college. After entering your address, click Next.
The next screen asks if this is a "workspace" account or a personal gmail. Select Google Workspace Account. Make sure it says "an account owned by shawneecc.edu" just below.
The next screen asks you for your password. Enter your password in that field. A default password was given to you along with your mySCC login. You should have already changed this in mySCC. If so, use that new password. If not, type in your default password. Your email address should be displayed above the password field. Click Next to continue logging in.
You should now be logged in to your email inbox. Take a few moments to familiarize yourself with its layout.
Because your email is Gmail, you can log in to your email from any Google email log in page. Try typing "gmail" into Google. The Gmail log in page should be the first result.
Alternatively, just type mail.google.com into your browser's address bar.
