Same Sign On
Same Sign On
The format of the CCBC network ID is fistname.lastname (john.doe) and firstname.lastname@example.org (e.g. john.doe @ccbc.edu). Either format can be used as the user name to log in to all CCBC accounts and to any computer on campus.
Exception: If the number of characters in the username is greater than 20 then only the first 20 characters are recognized. For example, if the user's name is Johnanthan Gingleheimer then johnanthan.ginglehei and email@example.com could be entered as the username.
How does same sign-on affect you?
- One username and one password provide access to all CCBC resources.
- If you are a returning student, all your information in Blackboard and MyCCBC is the same.
- If you are a new student, your accounts on Blackboard and MyCCBC will be created using same sign on.
- If you are an employee of CCBC, then your account on MyCCBC will use same sign on.
- If you are a faculty member, and use Blackboard, then your primary Blackboard account will use same sign on. If additional Blackboard user accounts have been created to help you in seeing the student view of your courses, those accounts will continue to use Blackboard internal authentication.
- If you mistype your password more than three times in a minute, your account will be disabled for 30 minutes.
- If you reset your password in an application, such as Outlook Web email access, then that password rest applies to all of your accounts.
- Note that applications not hosted by CCBC, such as MyMathLabs, will continue to use their own internal authentication and are not part of the same sign on project.
