Important notification - Coast Colleges system maintenance Feb 14 9pm through Feb 19 7am



Dear Student:


Starting on February 14, 2019 at 9pm through February 19, 2019 at 7am, there will be scheduled maintenance performed on various systems. The student portal - MyCCC, MyGWC, or MyOCC - will not be available during this time frame. You will not be able to register for, add or drop classes, access financial aid information, or access DegreeWorks for educational planning or degree audit.


Canvas and your college email through Gmail will be available.


We recommend that, if you have not done so, by February 14 you create your alternate login for Canvas as described below under Option 2. During the outage period for system maintenance noted above you will be able to login to Canvas using Option 1 described below. Option 2 is available and recommended just in case Option 1 is impacted during the outage period for system maintenance.
