How do I log in?
Once a student enrolls for classes, a notification email will be sent to the student's personal email address with information about their new MEC email address. This notification will be sent approximately seven (7) days after enrolling in classes. Once a campus email account has been created, no further emails will be sent to a students’ personal email address.

ACTION REQUIRED: Enable Office365 multi-factor authentication (MFA)
Through a CUNY-wide partnership with Microsoft, we offer Medgar Evers College students a state-of-the-art email and communications suite that is activated when students claim their MEC email addresses. As email is the official means of communication regarding Academic and Administrative matters, it is required that all MEC students claim their MEC email account.
Your MEC email account will remain active as long as you are a student registered at the College. Email accounts will be temporarily disabled for unregistered students but will be reactivated upon re-enrollment. After graduation, students have the option to keep their email account. (Please contact the Helpdesk for further details.)
Starting September 27, 2021, Information Technology will enable multi-factor authentication (MFA), a security enhancement that requires two forms of verification when using your Office365 Login, and will add critical protection for your sign-on credentials. In response to a dramatic rise in the sophistication of phishing and malware attacks targeting the Medgar Evers College community, this additional step will ensure information security is protected.
