• ServiceDesk

    Students and employees are encouraged to call the ITS ServiceDesk with technology questions and problems. When you call or email the CCAC ServiceDesk, the analyst will log your issue into the Service Desk software, create a ServiceDesk "ticket" and assign you a ticket number. This ticket is used to track your problem to its resolution.

    If the agent cannot solve your problem immediately on the phone, the ticket will be assigned to a technician at your campus or an analyst/engineer. The ServiceDesk software allows your problem, via the ServiceDesk ticket, to be tracked through each phase of the resolution process.

    Please have your Student or Employee ID number when you call. Where do I find my Student ID?

  • Open labs at each campus will be open Monday through Saturday; hours may vary slightly; see campus computer labs for details. During semester breaks, reduced hours will be announced via email.

    Where to Find your Student/Employee ID Number

    You can find your student ID# on your CCAC Student ID Card or a variety of correspondence from CCAC:       

    • Acceptance letter,
    • Registration statement or CCAC invoice, 
    • Welcome letter from Distance Learning,
    • Letter from Admissions/Registration
    • Your 1098-T income tax form from CCAC
    • Note: the CCAC student ID number could be referred to as: student account, Colleague ID, Datatel ID. Also, many departments truncate the leading "0" of the student ID number, so you could be looking at a five- or six-digit number and not realize that is what we need. 

    If you have a CCAC student photo ID or other photo identification such as a driver's license, you can go to any campus or center open computer lab to have your password reset. To obtain your student ID#, please visit any campus Registration office or call for Registration staff to mail you this information. You can also visit the NetID Account Management System to recover your student ID# via the web.
