MCAD Login

MCAD Login

In the rest of the Knowledge Base, you may encounter language that refers to the “short MCAD username” and the “long MCAD username”. Your short MCAD name refers to the part of your email address before the @ symbol. For example, our good friend David Hasslehoff’s MCAD username would be: dhasslehoff

The long MCAD username refers to your full email address. David’s long MCAD username would be: dhasslehoff@mcad.edu

The username used to log in to different systems on campus will use one of these formats. You will use your long MCAD username to log in to your campus Gmail account. Most other systems, including logging in to the lab computers, will simply use the short MCAD username. In this article, you’ll learn all you could ever want to know about your MCAD Login.

Currently Enrolled Students

 Degree-seeking students who are currently enrolled in at least one course for credit are entitled to an mcad.edu email address. Continuing Studies students do not receive mcad.edu email addresses.

There is a one semester grace period for previously enrolled students before their email account is disabled. This means, for example, that if you are enrolled in a fall course and choose not to enroll in the following semester, your email account will remain active until the start of the following summer session.

Students who have been expelled from school will have their accounts terminated immediately.

Graduating Students

  • Graduating students will have their mcad.edu email accounts open until the following dates:
  • December Grads - Your account will be disabled December 15th of the following year.
  • May Grads - Your account will be disabled May 15th of the following year.
