Getting Started

This page contains information that will help you get started on your distance education.

If you have already registered for your distance course you should have received a welcome letter containing your instructor's name and contact information as well as an enrolment key if the course is delivered online.


Students can access their financial accounts and academic records via the Internet using MyACC If you have never accessed MyACC before, go to “I’m New to MyACC” in the lower right-hand corner of the page. The initial password for all student accounts is your birth date entered as a string of 6 digits: YYMMDD (i.e. November 2, 1978 is 781102). The first time you enter this password you will be asked to change it. Passwords must be between 6 and 9 characters and contain both letters and numbers. Passwords will expire every 90 days. If you experience difficulties with your username or password, please go to “Contact Us” on the MyACC homepage.
