If you’re looking to access your GNTC email, you’ve come to the right place. GNTC students can use MyGNTC and Microsoft Office 365 to create student email accounts, as well as access the wireless network. If you have any questions about using GNTC email, visit the GNTC Email Help Page. Here, you’ll find helpful information for students. After all, they are your classmates!
Student Email Address
To use Microsoft Office 365 email, you need to log into Okta. Your user name will be your GNTC student email address. Your default password is your GNTC email address, but you should change it to something more secure. It should contain upper and lower-case letters, as well as numbers and special characters. It should also be at least fourteen characters long. When you use this email service, make sure to log out as soon as you leave the computer unattended.
Students and faculty/staff will have access to an online storage and file sharing service called OneDrive. OneDrive is a free online storage service provided by Microsoft. Students will have one Terabyte of storage on their OneDrive accounts. OneDrive will be referred to as OneDrive for Business in GNTC. This service will be available from any location that has an Internet connection. The OneDrive shortcut will be located on desktops of student lab computers and Horizon VDI Desktop Environments. To access your OneDrive files, click on the O365 login link in your email.
If you want to access all the resources on the GNTC intranet, you need to have a VDI account. MyGNTC is not a requirement, but if you want to use the intranet from off-campus, you must have a VDI account. The TCSG/GNTC has partnered with Okta to enable single sign-on, allowing students and faculty/staff to use a single authentication credential to access various work applications. Okta also allows you to use multi-factor authentication, which is a great benefit for students.
If you are not able to log into your email, check the steps outlined in your student’s Welcome Letter and Student Handbook to find your MyGNTC email account. GNTC actively monitors the spread of viruses, so you can rest assured that your personal information is protected. If you need to reset your password, simply log into MyGNTC using your student email account. You can also request a password reset from the Student Help Center.
GNTC uses a wireless network
GNTC students may access Windows desktop sessions from off-campus or onsite via the GNTC wireless network. The network is available at the Floyd County, Walker County, Gordon County, Catoosa County, and Polk/Murray counties. Soon, the network will be available on the Whitfield/Murray County campus. GNTC is committed to protecting student privacy. Below are its current privacy practices.
You can login to your GNTC email by using the SSPR and the O365 Online portal. The username and password are your GNTC student email address. After you log in, you can change your password to a more secure one. The password you choose must contain upper and lowercase letters, numbers, special characters, and at least fourteen characters long. If you forget your password, you can use the SSPR. Alternatively, you can use the O365 Online portal to change your password.
GNTC uses a student email account
You’ve probably heard that GNTC uses a student email account. What does that mean? This email account is only used by students, not staff. You can still access this account if you’re on campus. Using it outside the college will not give you the same privileges, so be sure to read the terms carefully before you accept them. In addition, don’t use this email account to send unsolicited emails.
Your GNTC student email account will be used for official communications, such as those related to financial aid, calendar changes, and messages from instructors. It’s also used for receiving information from the Office of Financial Aid, which can help you apply for financial aid and give you details about deadlines and policies. Make sure to keep this information up to date and use it properly to make your college experience as smooth as possible.
