Guest Accounts on Networked Computers

Computer accounts are the means used to grant access to College of the Mainland information resources.  These accounts provide a means of providing accountability, a key to any computer security program, for information resources usage and restrictions.  Specific circumstances may require guests (non College of the Mainland employees or students) to have access to College of the Mainland network resources.

Please note:

  • The guest generic login will be locked to a single computer.
  • The guest access network record must be filled out in its entirety for each use of the generic login credentials.
