Please complete the steps below to create your GC student portal and email account:

- Once there, you will go to the link “Create Your Account” – you can find this on the homepage in a grey box on the left
- Choose “Undergraduate Student”
- Next, you will need to input the following information (please read carefully):
- ID # - your ID is a six digit number likely starting with a 5. It is on your Student ID. If you are not sure of your ID # and do not yet have your ID, please be in touch with your admission counselor.
- Date of Birth (mm/dd/yyyy) (for example, if you were born January 1, 2001, you should write 01/01/2001)
- Zip Code (5 digits only)
- Last Name (This is case sensitive!)
- Then click "Continue"
- From there you will be prompted to choose a username, email and create a password. Be sure to write your username and password in your notes so you don't forget!
- Once your username is created, you will then answer a handful of questions about security (make sure you do these!), emergency contact info, etc. (the next time you log on to the portal, you will be asked a few FERPA and insurance questions).
- At the bottom left corner of the screen, you will see a link to student email. Go ahead and click on it and sign in!
