Please be aware of important changes to new student account login configuration.
All access to shared computing facilities requires a valid ECC account, consisting of a username and password. Student user accounts are automatically created for students who are properly registered at Erie Community College. Accounts for new students are available the first day of the semester, unless the student registers late. Late registered students will have their account created within 24 hours of registering for a course.

ECC has changed the username algorithm to accommodate system changes for the Fall 2011 semester.
Therefore, if you are a new student to ECC in or after the Fall 2011 semester, your username will use a different algorithm than an existing ECC student.
If you were a student prior to the Fall 2011 semester, your account information has not changed.

Students who are new to ECC for Fall 2011 or after, use the following naming convention.
Username: first six letters of last name + first initial + middle initial + two digit day of birth + last digit year of birth
Note: The username should be in lowercase. If your last name is shorter than six characters, your entire last name should be used.
Password: last four digits of social security number + two digit year of birth

Examples:
Name: Virginia R. Taberine This user would have the following username, e-mail and password
Birth date: 05/15/1971 Username: taberivr151 and e-mail: taberivr151@ecc.edu
Social Security # 000-00-9231 Password: 923171

Name: Ron J. Doe This user would have the following username, e-mail and password
Birth date: 12/01/1975 Username: doerj015
Social Security # 000-00-1151 Password: 115175

Students who have been attending ECC previous to the Fall 2011 semester will use the following convention.
Username: first six letters of last name + first initial + two digit day of birth
Note: The username should be in lowercase. If your last name is shorter than six characters, your entire last name should be used.
Password: last four digits of social security number + two digit year of birth

Examples:
Name: Virginia R. Taberine This user would have the following username, e-mail and password
Birth date: 05/15/1971 Username: taberiv15 and e-mail: taberiv15@ecc.edu
Social Security # 000-00-9231 Password: 923171

I can log in, but the classes for which Iím registered do not show under My ANGEL Courses on the My Profile page. What should I do?

If you are an ECC student who has just added the course your name will not appear on the ANGEL roster for up to 24 hours after you signed up for the course. It is also possible that you have been dropped from the roster for any number of reasons, include late payment of fees. If that's the case, and you again add the course it will take up to 24 hours before you can get access to ANGEL.  If neither of the two previous situations applies you should contact the ECC Help Desk at (716) 851-1835 or on the web at http://helpdesk.ecc.edu
