Student Accounts
Your "Student Account"  refers to your account that you use in the Computing Center to log in to a computer as well as into wireless.  Your "Student Account" is NOT the same as your MyOCC account.  For MyOCC Password Help.
 
Students should enroll into OCC's password self-management system, Password Station.

Why Enroll in Password Station?
Password Station will allow students, faculty, and staff to recover a forgotten password or change an existing password. You can access Password Station from any browser anywhere in the world.

If you do not enroll into Password Station and then forget your password, you will have to request that it be reset for you. This often takes longer than enrolling, and must occur during the standard business hours and availability of the IT and Computing Center Staff. For more information on how to have your password reset manually, please contact the appropriate support: 
  • Students should go to the John R. Clark Computing Center Information Desk in person to have their passwords manually reset.
  • Faculty and staff should contact the Information Technology Support Desk (714) 432-5500 for more information about having their password manually reset.

Next you will be prompted to enter your current password to verify your identity and continue with the enrollment procedure. Your password must be at least 6 characters long with at least one of each: capital letter, small letter, number.

If an incorrect password is entered you will receive an error message.

Once the correct password is entered, the next page will display a series of three drop down question lists. The questions and answers must be unique for the required Identity Challenges.
When you type your answers, be aware that there is no check on spelling or nonsense. The answers are not case sensitive, so capital letters or small letters are treated the same. You will, of course, want to be sure to answer your questions with answers that you will remember; should you forget your password, you will need to remember all three answers in order to reset it.
