As a student of the Riverside Community College District (RCCD) you are provided with a free student email account through Microsoft’s Office 365 for Education. Access to this email account is imperative as this is the ONLY approved method of formal communication between the District and the student. Personal email addresses will not be used by RCCD. Access to this email account will provide you with important notices, new classes, class changes, wait list status, notices from Student Financial Services, faculty correspondence, and more. Once assigned, your student e-mail address will never change. Please check your email account daily.
If you cannot login to your RCCD student email account with your default password, you must login to WebAdvisor to reset your email account password. Microsoft Support CANNOT reset your password. To successfully reset your password you MUST login to WebAdvisor and select “Student Email Password Reset” located on the left hand side of the screen. Keep in mind when resetting your email password that it may take up to 5 working days; this excludes weekends and holidays. You CANNOT reset your password by using the "Can't Access Your Account" link on the Microsoft Office365 email account login page.
Accessing Your Account
- To access your RCCD Student Email account, go to mail.office365.com and sign in with your RCCD student email address.
- If you have never logged into your RCCD Student Email account before, your default password is your initials (first letter capitalized) followed by your birthday in (mmddyy) format. For example, if your name is John Smith and your birth date is 06/10/1990 then your default password is Js061090. If you are a returning user, your password has not changed.
- Follow the Microsoft Office prompts to set up and access your account.
- You can forward your RCCD email to another personal email account by going to Settings > Options > Forward Your Email.
