Single Identity


“Single Identity” is Coming to SMCC!

One Username, One Password—One Big Improvement!



South Mountain Community College students and employees will soon log in to college technology resources and computers with a Single Identity—their MEID (Maricopa Enterprise ID) and password.

That same Single Identity—current MEID and password—will also be required to connect personal devices to the college’s wireless network.



The change will become active as of December 14, 2012.



Instructors:  All instructors will log in using their own MEID and password. The previous general-use log-in for “Instructor” will no longer be functional.

Students:  All students will be required to log in using their MEID and password. Any student who does not know, or has forgotten, their MEID and/or password will need to visit and click “Login” to find their MEID or reset their password.

Guests:  For college-sanctioned programs or special events, in which individuals who are not current students require computer access, a temporary generic log in will be made available. These requests must be made to SMCC Technology Support Services no less than one week in advance of need.



The new Single Identity will apply to all classrooms, labs and common computer areas requiring a log on to an SMCC computer.

This change will NOT apply to office computers assigned to an individual.

This change will also not apply to computers in the South Mountain Community Library.


Guest wireless access will no longer be available on a campus-wide basis. Visitors will be able to access the free “Guest” wireless networks in the following areas:

1) The South Mountain Community Library

2) The SMCC Cougar Café

3) The patio outside the Student Enrollment Services building

4) The patio at the SMCC Guadalupe Center


Visitors seeking Internet access will continue to be directed to the public computers in the South Mountain Community Library on the main campus, and specified “community use” computers at SMCC off-site locations. Use of computers in the SMCC Computer Commons will be limited to students and employees only.

Current SMCC students who are enrolled in an upcoming semester may log on using their MEID and password with no interruption. They will retain access until 30 days after the end of their final class.

Students not currently taking classes but registered for an upcoming semester will be able to log on 30 days prior to the start date of their earliest class. Any student dropped or suspended for disciplinary reasons will immediately lose access to SMCC technology resources.
