Logging Into My Cardinal Connect
1Navigate to your Student Portal
48 (business) hours after students have received communication form the TVCC Registrar Office regarding admission, students will be able to access TVCC’s MyCardinalConnect portal via the TVCC homepage found under “Colleague Self Service” menu at bottom of page under “Quick Links” heading.
Login credentials are:
User name – Cardinal ID. Find your Cardinal ID here.
Password – lowercase first initial + last four digits of social security number + uppercase last initial + 4 digit year of birth (Jane Doe born in 1998 with social security number ending in 1234 and would generate password of j1234D1998)
3Check out the New Look
MyCardinalConnect Colleague Self-Service Portal opens to the below screen.
4Update Student Profile
With your first access to MyCardinalConnect, it is important that you immediately update your contact information with an EXTERNAL email address (non-TVCC) for your user profile. This will be necessary to add so that a password reset link can be sent to an external email address should you forget your password.
Select "User Profile" under the login information icon:
Select "Add New Email" under Email Addresses to update with an EXTERNAL email:
Enter your choice of EXTERNAL (non-TVCC) email address, mark it as personal, and select "Add Email." Please note - should you ever need your account reset, this external email is where your password recovery will take place:
5Navigating within the Portal
Select the "expand" icon to the top left of the page to familiarize yourself with the main menu options available to you through your portal. There are so many things you can take advantage of in your new portal it is best to take a look around and get to know the new capabilities you have right at your fingertips.
6Be Sure to Check for Alerts
Be sure to always check the top right of your screen for red or yellow "alerts" as TVCC will use this portal to notify you of any important upcoming deadlines or changes.
