Students, faculty and staff can change the password of their MCAD Login without assistance, provided they know their current password. Simply visit password.mcad.edu and fill in the required fields according to the guidelines.
Students, faculty and staff who have forgotten their current password can have it reset in the following ways:
Students can reset their own password online on this page, which can also be accessed by visiting password.mcad.edu and clicking the link labelled “I’m a Student and I forgot my MCAD Login password.” Students will then be prompted to provide their MCAD username, Student ID and date of birth. When these details are confirmed, a password reset link will be emailed to the personal (non-MCAD) email address that the student provided at the beginning of their time at MCAD. To update this personal email address, please contact the Records office.
Faculty members who have forgotten their password can use the Faculty Password Reset Form.
Staff members who have forgotten their password should stop by the Help Desk in person with a photo ID. If a staff member cannot be on campus and needs their password reset, they should enter a ticket with the Help Desk. Please note that other forms of identity verification will be required for password resets done remotely.
Staff with Windows credentials who have forgotten their Windows password, or who have had their Windows account locked as the result of too many failed password attempts, will need to enter a ticket with the Help Desk. The Help Desk will verify their identity, unlock their account and/or reset their password. Windows accounts will be locked after 5 failed password attempts, and reset passwords must be different than the last 8 passwords.
MyMCAD passwords for Parents, Guardians or other 3rd Parties, which are associated with the email address provided by the student in the FERPA form, may be reset by visiting this link, which can also be found at the bottom of password.mcad.edu.
