MyCGCC is your dashboard as a C-GCC student — everything you need, all in one place. Below you will find information and links to Banner Self-Service, e-mail and Office 365, Brightspace® (NEW), Degree Works, CircleIn, and Talkspace. Also find the Multi-factor Authentication FAQ.
CGCC Student Information Portals
Your CGCC student account enables you to use one username and password for the services and resources we offer.
If you are a new or returning student, the College will send an e-mail to the personal email address you provided in your application. The email will contain the information you need to get started. Save this information, as it will be necessary if you need to reset your password or recover your account.
If necessary, reset your account password using the username we sent in your initial account email.
Banner Self Service provides accepted applicants and students with a web interface to their personal records at Columbia-Greene Community College.
Register for classes, view and make adjustments to your class schedule, check on your financial aid history, pay your bill or make a payment plan, look at your current grades or unofficial transcript, check course availability, and be sure that your demographic information is up to date – all without having to visit a single office on campus! Your information is kept secure via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) – you must log in with a User ID and password and may access only your own records. The User ID and password are the same as your student account used for email and other resources.
Login to Office 365 to access your email and several popular Microsoft Office products right in your web browser.
Blackboard is now retired and is no longer available. The College is moving to Brightspace for the distance learning needs of our students. Please see the Brightspace information below.
Digital Learning Environment
C-GCC has transitioned to a new Digital Learning Environment!
Students will be able to access Brightspace starting on August 25, 2022. Classes will be available for preview in the Brightspace environment on August 30, 2022. Note: You must be enrolled in classes in order to have an active account in Brightspace.
- Navigate to learn.sunycgcc.edu (alternatively, you can click the Brightspace Login button on the MyCGCC page)
- If you have never previously logged in to Brightspace on your current device, the above link will take you to the SUNY Secure Sign On page. Select Columbia-Greene from the drop down menu, then toggle the “Remember Campus?” option so you do not get prompted for this again on the device you are using.
- Click the Log In button
- Enter your Columbia-Greene email address in Microsoft Sign In window* and click the Next button. At the next window, enter your password and click the Sign in button. If you like, you may answer yes to the next prompt, “Stay signed in?”
*If you are currently logged in to your C-GCC account to use any of our other single sign on services (Office 365, Banner, etc.) on your current device, you will not see the Microsoft Sign In window, and will instead go directly to Brightspace. Likewise, if you have previously opted to stay signed in, and you have also toggled the “Remember Campus?” option during a previous session on your current device, learn.sunycgcc.edu should take you directly to your Brightspace home page.
