Office Login Instructions

Similar to GSuite, a Microsoft 365 account is automatically created for a student shortly after they are accepted to BMCC. The login steps will also be very similar. Use the following steps to access Microsoft 365:

  1. Go to https://office.com/
  2. Sign in using your BMCC Email
    • Your BMCC Email address should be as follows: The first initial of your first name, your last name, and the last 4 digits of your Student ID number followed by @student.bmcc.edu.
  3. Sign in using your default password (this should be changed later)
    • Your default password should be bmcc followed by your student ID number with an exclamation mark at the end.
      Example Student
              First Name: John
              Last Name: Smith
              Student ID: 1234567
      Example BMCC Email Account Info:
              Email address: jsmith4567@student.bmcc.edu
              Password: bmcc1234567!

Once you’ve logged into Microsoft 365, you will now have access to all of the applications listed above, and more. Unlike GSuite, you are not automatically prompted to change your password, however, it is still a good idea to do so. This process is just as straight forward. The steps to do so as are follows:

  1. Go to https://office.com/
  2. If you’ve followed the steps above, you will already be signed in. If not, follow the steps above.
  3. Click on the circle with your initials in them in the upper-most right corner of the screen.
    • Example: If your name were John Smith, the icon would be the letters JS encased within a circle. Image instructions are available below.
  4. Once clicked on the circle, click on the first link visible directly below your email titled “View Account”.
  5. Now that you are viewing your account, you should see a large “Password” section with an icon of a key. Right below the key, click the “Change Password” link.
  6. Once at the change password webpage, you’ll notice three prompts. The first is your old-password. Type in the password that you used to log in, which was generated for you. In the second and third fields, type in your brand-new password. You are asked to type it in twice to ensure you don’t make any spelling errors. Be sure to choose a new password that is strong and one which you will remember. There is information online about what makes a good password, as well as free password generators.
