When will I get my student email, username and password?

Within as little as an hour or up to 24 hours after the acceptance of a student by the Admissions Department, the student’s SCS email and user account is created, a log-in letter is generated and sent via email to the student’s existing email address provided during the application process.

If you have not received the letter, the Registration Office can provide this initial log-in information..

If the attempts to reset the temporary password through the website have failed the student should be directed to the SMCC Help Desk at 619-590-1709. The Registration Office does not have the ability to reset passwords.

Please note, the SCS email and user account is different from your Populi log-in and password which you will set up separately. For most new students, you should already have your Populi log-in information which you created during the admissions process.
