Your COM Login Information
Your login information allows you to access a suite of online and network services, including Blackboard, WebAdvisor, Email, Virual Desktops and more. For additional information please view our Acceptable Use Regulation.
What is my Username?
Your username consists of your first initial followed by your last name and @com.edu. If that username is already taken, your username will be first initial followed by your last name and numeral and @com.edu. For example:
- If there was already a firstname.lastname@example.org then the username would be email@example.com

What is my Initial Password?
Students initial password is your seven-digit COM ID number. If your COM ID number is, for example, 723, you must add four zeros in front of 723 to make it seven digits (0000723).
Not coming to Campus?
Users that do not attend classes on campus, such as Distance Education, Dual Credit students and instructors must first use the password reset tool at http://password.com.edu/ in order to access network resources (Webadvisor, Blackboard, etc.).
