Changes to MCC Login


Montcalm Community College is migrating to a single sign-on (SSO) process using multi-factor authentication (MFA) to increase digital security. Migration to SSO with MFA significantly decreases the opportunity for passwords to be stolen and is a future-ready approach to a password-less environment. MCC is switching from OneLogin to the Microsoft Azure AD single sign-on with MFA for employee, faculty and student login access. 


Please sign up for multifactor authentication or you will be unable to access your MCC email, Canvas and other applications.

Setting up passwordless entry

This video will guide you through the quick process of setting up "passwordless" entry for your MCC account. This will allow you to use your mobile device for account entry instead of the need to enter your password each time.

Adjust multifactor settings

The guide below will show you how to adjust your MultiFactor Authentication Method(s) or add new! If you recently obtained a new smartphone, you will need the Service Desk to help you with updating this.

Authentication Methods


MCC's new single sign-on will require a second method to authenticate identity verification and password reset requests. Two-factor authentication is required for each login, unless you check the box that says 'Don't ask again for 30 days'. 


Register more than one method of authentication for best security and ease of use. Should you forget your phone at home have trouble getting a signal or connecting to WiFi, you'll be able to select 'Sign in  Another Way' and Azure AD will prompt you for another method to use.

Microsoft Authenticator App The Microsoft Authenticator app is the most secure option to use as a second authentication method. The app generates short passcodes every 30 seconds and instantly displays the current code, making it the fastest authentication option through just a click of a button.

The app can be downloaded from Android/iSO app store and installed on more than one device.

Other two-factor Verification methods Other methods that can be used for both a second authentication method and password reset authentication include:

About Azure AD


Azure AD uses automation features that increase the ability to detect cyber security threats. Microsoft recently reported that over 75% of network intrusions originated from exploited weak or stolen credentials. Azure AD provides MFA with the touch of a screen or typing in a short-digit code and features an option to remember it for thirty days, making it simple to use, while remaining secure.


The application works seamlessly with Office 365 and is already connected to MCC's systems. Additionally, it allows the college to launch a self-service password reset portal (SSPR). Calls to the service desk for lost passwords and locked accounts will be replaced with quick access through the SSPR portal.
