Changes to Student Access
In accordance with the Guidelines for Student Email, Google G Suite & Office 365 (PDF), only registered students will be able to access Google G Suite, Office 365, and Student Email. Keep reading for important information about this change.
New Student Accounts
Students who have never applied for admission to Southwestern College or returning students who have applied before but have not registered for three semesters or more:
- Will only be able to send email to other @swccd.edu email addresses using SWC Student Email.
- Will not have access to Google G Suite.
- Will not have access to Office 365.
New students who register for courses will have full access within 24 hours after registering (see "Registered Student Accounts" below).
Registered Student Accounts
Students who are actively registered for courses will enjoy complete access to:
- SWC Student Email - no restrictions on who you can email.
- Google G Suite - automatic access to all apps.
- Office 365 - ability to request access to the online and downloadable versions.
Students who are not actively registered for courses will lose all access (see "Archived Student Accounts" below).
Archived Student Accounts
Students who haven't registered for courses within the past three semesters will have absolutely no access to Google G Suite, Office 365, and Student Email. These prior students will need to Apply to SWC again and Register for Courses (see "New Student Accounts" above). As a courtesy, students in jeopardy of losing access will receive an email notification approximately one semester before access is removed.
All About Campus Apps
Campus Apps are located at the very top of the MySWC Portal. Some apps are available to everyone, while other apps are visible only to those who are authorized to use them. Also, many Campus Apps participate in MySWC SSO, so there's no need to remember an additional set of usernames and passwords!
The accordions below provide an overview of each Campus App.
