We’ve shortened your email address. Any email sent to your old email address will automatically direct to your new one for a short time. Please take steps as soon as possible to update your contacts with your new correct email address.
If you’ve logged in to BC email before, you were instructed to type student\ in front of your user name. This was a clumsy, confusing process for many students so we’ve simplified it. Now you’ll only need to type your user name and password. *These log-in steps also apply to MyBC, Canvas and other campus services you log in to with your network account.
If you’ve worked at the college and attended classes, it’s likely you possessed two accounts. Traditionally these accounts were referred to as your “student account” and your “employee account.” If this scenario applied to you, your two accounts were merged on August 27. The account you referred to as your employee account is now your single, permanent NetID (i.e. network account). If you haven’t used your employee account recently, you may look up your username or password online using the NetID Management site. Read more FAQ about username changes…
If you have not attended BC classes and/or haven’t logged in to your BC email or other campus technology resources in more than 5 quarters, we consider your student account inactive. On August 27, we deleted all inactive student accounts. If you are returning to the college, you’ll be able to create a new account at that time.
New student network accounts will follow a new user name format. The new user name format is: firstname.lastname. If you created your account prior to August 27, your account will not follow this standard. We are not asking students with previously established accounts to change their username at this time.
Student NetIDs (network accounts) will now expire after 120 days. You may reset your password anytime you wish using the NetID management site. We strongly encourage you to update your password as frequently as possible in order to keep your information secure. Read more tips on BC NetID password rules and standards.
