Student Self-Service


My SSC provides enhanced self-service capabilities for registration, course planning, student financial information, and email. All students attempting to access MySSC need to have completed the application process. Any student without a user name and password, needs to visit the Office of Admissions (main campus), with a valid, government issued, photo ID to retrieve your information. If you do not live in-district, but are using a charge-back agreement, cooperative agreement, work-in-district waiver, etc., you still need to register online, but then must come to the registration counter, on campus, to have your tuition rate adjusted (be sure to bring proper documentation).

If you are having trouble accessing the “My Moodle Courses” section of the “MySSC” portal, please go directly to and enter your College user name and password. View the tutorial for a quick overview covering logging in, accessing your college email, and using some of the “Self Service” functions of WebAdvisor.

Don’t Know Your Password?

Did you know your secure user name and password are unique?  You can receive your password by visiting the Office of Admissions (Rm 2348) on the main campus with a valid photo ID.  If you have a secondary email address on file with the college you can just call the Office of Admissions (708-210-5718) with your username or student ID number to have your password sent to this secondary address.  You can also use the online resend password form.  An email will then be sent to the secondary email address on file.

Tips to Help You Successfully Register Online:

Register for any developmental courses (Reading 080, 081 and 082, English 097, 098, 099 and Math 091, 093, 095, 096, 100) and OCS 121 (if required) first. Make arrangements for payment by the given deadline*, or your classes will be purged (automatically canceled by the computer system) for lack of payment. When this happens, students will need to create a new schedule and choose their classes all over again, and risk not being able to have the class schedule they had originally chosen. * available through your “MY SSC” (Portal) to allow 24 hour access during college closed period
