Once you are enrolled at TMCC, you will be assigned a TMCC email account. Your TMCC email is a key tool in your education; it is the primary communication method used by the College and your instructors to provide information about your classes and student account. Make plans to check it regularly to stay up-to-date on College news and class assignments.
Your TMCC Email Account
In order to ensure that all official information and communications from TMCC reach you via email and within MyTMCC, TMCC has contracted with Google (via Gmail) to provide all students with an official TMCC email account.
TMCC sends all official information to your TMCC email account, regardless of which email account you select in MyTMCC as your preferred email.
Your new student email address can be identified as: email@example.com, where "username" is custom to you, and noted in your letter of acceptance. While attending TMCC, it is your responsibility to check your tmcc.edu email account regularly.
If you need assistance, please use the self-service option or contact TMCC's online student support to retrieve your username, reset your password or set your security questions.

TMCC Email Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to use a TMCC Email Account?
Yes. TMCC requires enrolled students to utilize a TMCC email account, which is used for official College communications. The TMCC email system helps ensure that email communication is sent and received securely and reliably. It is important to check this email account on a regular basis because many of your instructors will be sending you information about your classes, particularly if you have any online classes.
Why is it required to use the TMCC email system?
In order to protect students’ privacy and to comply with federal law regarding student records (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, FERPA ), emails containing FERPA-related information will only be sent to the official institution email address of the authorized recipient. FERPA-related email will not be sent to any other email address.
