Please note: Your password will expire every 90 days. You must change your password BEFORE it expires, otherwise, you'll have to reset it here.



Password Protection

It has come to the attention of the IT Department that there are some faculty members who are sharing their NetID accounts with their students. It is a breach of the CT Community College IT security policy to do this, as well as jeopardizing your privacy. If you share this information to expedite the log on of your students to NCC computers, any student with malicious intent will have access to your NCC computer account which includes your NCC e-mail account.


Do not share this information with your students. If they need to reset there computer account passwords please have them use the Password Reset Kiosks located in the East Campus near Admissions and the West Campus in the CIT's first and second floor and outside the Academic Center. The IT Department is in the process of adding additional Kiosk locations. Written NetID reset password instructions and the IT CCC Acceptable Use Policy can be found under the Policies submenu. If you have any questions regarding computer login procedures, please call the IT Helpdesk (ext 76800).
