Tips for the start of the semester

SIGN IN AND USE YOUR @MY.SMCCD EMAIL

All college electronic communications will come to your my.smccd.edu email address. Log into your WebSMART student account to find your email address and password. If you wish, you may forward your my.smccd.edu emails to a personal email account. For more information about email forwarding, see the Email Forwarding tutorial.

USE WAITLISTS

You will only have 24 hours from the time you have been notified via email (your my.smccd.edu account) to register. Please review your email daily if you are on a waitlist. If you do not register for the class within 24 hours, you will be dropped off the waitlist. You may also receive waitlist notifications via text message if you sign up to receive other non-emergency information via text message.

SIGN UP FOR TEXT MESSAGE NOTIFICATION

To receive important college communications via text message on your device, log in to WebSMART. Click on "Student Services", then on "Update Your Goal/Major and other Student Information".

CLOSED CLASSES

If a class you want is filled to capacity, you should contact the instructor. If the instructor has space in the class, they may provide you with an authorization code to add the class.

SUBMIT AUTHORIZATION CODES IMMEDIATELY

If you receive an authorization code from an instructor to add a class, be sure to register immediately via WebSMART. You will need both the authorization code and the CRN# for the class in order to enroll. Some instructors may honor your authorization code for a short period of time only. If you have not officially registered for the class, you may be denied entry.

BORROW TECHNOLOGY

Current students who need access to internet and technology equipment or software required to complete coursework, are eligible to borrow available equipment such as Chromebooks, hotspots, and graphing calculators. Submit a request for technology.

ORDER TEXTBOOKS ONLINE

Search for and purchase textbooks by Course Reference Number (CRN) to get them shipped to you from the Bulldog Bookstore. Here’s a step-by-step video on how to order your books. For questions about Inclusive Access, including support and the opt-out form, visit the Inclusive Access webpage.

IF YOU MISS THE FIRST CLASS, CONTACT YOUR INSTRUCTOR

If you were unable to get to your first class meeting please contact your instructor immediately to avoid the possibility of being dropped for non-attendance.
