Authentication

All students, staff and faculty are furnished with a unique SMC username and password that ensure secure authentication to an "account" that can be used to access online SMC applications. This is to say that accounts control access to most systems. The username is assigned based on your initials at the time of the assignment.  This unique ID stays with its owner for the useful life of the account, which will vary according to a person's role with the College.
