SETTING UP YOUR TCL STUDENT EMAIL
TCL uses Microsoft Office 365 for student email. Your TCL email account is free and can be used as long as you like, even after you graduate.
To access email go to https://www.outlook.com/my.tcl.edu. Your User ID is your first and last name @my.tcl.edu and should be typed as one word: firstname.lastname@example.org. The entire User ID is typed in lower case letters with no spaces. For example, the User ID for John Smith is email@example.com. Your initial password is (“TCL” + “the last seven digits of your social security number” + “!”). For example, John Smith has a social security number of 123-45-6789. TCL3456789! is the initial password for John Smith. Click the “Sign in” button.
When you sign in for the first time, you will be asked to change your password. Your new password must be 8 or more characters in length including letters, punctuation, symbols, and numbers to create a strong password. When creating your new password, you can check it to find out if it is a weak or strong password. Be sure to create a password that is not in the weak category.
Your Microsoft Office 365 account will give you access to email, a calendar, contacts, and tasks. If you experience problems logging in or forget your password, call the Help Desk at (843) 525-8344.
Microsoft also provides a free account called SkyDrive. To sign into SkyDrive go to https://skydrive.live.com. Initially, your User ID and password will be the same as for your TCL email account. SkyDrive provides access to online storage, file sharing, and Microsoft Office applications. Because TCL does not manage your SkyDrive account, you should go to http://support.microsoft.com/ for support. You can also call the general support line at (800) 642-7676.
To use both products on your personal computer you may need to upgrade your web browser or office application to a more recent version. For instance, if you are using Internet Explorer 6 or 7, you will need to upgrade. If you are using Outlook to read your email and you are using Microsoft Office 2003, you will need to upgrade to Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 to continue using Outlook.
