Winter/Spring 2015 Offerings: Computers

If your course requires a computer account, and you are a new student, you will receive two envelopes, one containing your username and the other your password, in the mail.

If you are a returning student and you no longer have your username and/or password you can contact the Office of Community and Professional Education at (518) 629-7339, and we can reset your password and send both your username and new password to you in the mail. Please make this request at least one week before your course begins. If you do not have your username and password on the day your class begins, you can come to the Office of Community and Professional Education (during business hours) in the Guenther Enrollment Services Center, Room 252 and with photo ID we can reset your password. Students can also go to the Computer Learning Center in the basement of the Marvin Library to have their password reset.

Your username is defined as the first initial of your first name, followed by a hyphen(-), followed by up to 13 characters of your last name (all lower case no spaces or other special characters). The password is randomly generated. Please go to www.hvcc.edu/login-help.html and use the "Change Your Password" link to change your password to something that will be easier to remember. You will find more detailed information regarding computer access at www.hvcc.edu/access.html.

Bring both your username and password to your course, as you will need it to access the computer during class. Course instructors do not have the ability to reset or view student passwords. It is the student's responsibility to ensure they have this information when they begin a class.
