Student Email

Access your GCC Student Email

Your instructor and classmates will use your GCC student email address to contact you.  Every student, upon registration, is assigned an email account and has access to other computing services at GCC.

bullet

Your instructor will give you your username for your GCC student email account.  

bullet

The initial password is your student ID number (usually your social security number).  

bullet

As soon as you receive your username, please login to change your password from your student ID number to something of your own choice at the change your password webpage.  

bullet

Student email addresses are in this format:  username@student.gc.maricopa.edu  

If you have enrolled at GCC in the recent past, you have the same email account, username, and password.  If you do not remember your password, you must come to campus and scan your Student ID at one of the Palette Account Stations at the west end of HT1 or HT2. Follow the instructions on the screen. Contact your instructor if you have problems with this. 

Your Student ID is required to use the Library, Fitness Center, and High Tech Centers; to attend aerobics classes and Student Life activities; and to pick up payroll checks at the Cashier's Office. A free Student ID card can be obtained at the Enrollment Center (EC) Building after tuition and fees are paid.
