Due to Federal guidelines regarding student personally identifiable information as defined by the Federal Education Right to Privacy Act (FERPA), we will be making some changes to help safeguard your information at GNTC. We will be going away from utilizing your 900 number as part of your Student Email/User logins. This will ensure that your account is more in line with the guidelines as well as evolving better business practices.
This change will involve two main steps. The first step will be changing your email address. On May 8 th , we will start a conversion process for current student accounts and students who have attended class or applied in the last year as well as students registered for a future orientation. This process will take several days to complete, as we will be modifying approx. 11000 accounts.
Login to find out what your new email account is
You will be able to log in to MyGNTC after the project is completed using the steps below and access the personal information menu to view your new account name.
- Go to http://mygntc.gntc.edu
- Click on “Enter MyGNTC”
- Provide your Student ID Number or SSN in the “User ID” field as well as your PIN number (this is NOT your email password) and click on the login button
- Click “Personal Information “. Click “View E-mail Address(es)”. Your new email will be displayed
The new format will be your first initial, part of your last name and a random number. It will be marked as Preferred and say “O365 AD Connect Sync Email”.
If you currently have an email address, your password will not change and all your email will still be in your mailbox. You will just be using a new username to access email and to log in on GNTC campuses. If you are using the MyGNTC app, you will be using these new credentials there as well.
One of the new features of this changeover is to remove the need for our existing password reset management service. Starting with this new change, you will be registering in Office 365 with a more traditional password reset process by Microsoft. This service will now synchronize your password changes automatically regardless of whether you change your password on campus or in the O365 portal. The sync process is quick and in 5-10 minutes should have accounts sync’d up in both places after changing your password.
