Brightspace will be using your student email as the address to reach you electronically.  All messages sent to you from Brightspace will go to your CCC student email.  See information on how to access your account on the Login Help page or on your Brightspace home page. Please check your email account often for messages from your instructors and fellow Brightspace students. 

Remember to login to your class and start participating right away. Instructors will be taking student attendance the first week and the registrar's office will be doing an administrative drop of students who have not checked in with the instructor and/or completed any assignments by Friday afternoon of the first week of class.

Brightspace shuts down for system maintenance and upgrades on the second Saturday of each month, from 10:00 pm Saturday - 4:00 am Sunday.  Please be aware that the system will not be available at this time.  Make sure to clear your browsing history during that time to avoid difficulties logging in after the maintenance period.

Here are a few handy checklists adapted from lists shared with us by Portland Community College.  They can help students keep track of the important details and tasks that need to be completed each term.  Visit these checklists regularly to ensure that you are on track to succeed.

If you have any questions or are experiencing difficulties, contact the Distance Education office or call (503) 338-2341.
