Office 365 Online Services

Office 365 is a bundle of services from Microsoft that includes an ever-expanding list of online tools available at portal.office.com

All STLCC students and my.stlcc.edu email users were transitioned to the Office 365 platform from Live@edu in September 2013.

MICROSOFT Office 365 services

All credit students are issued an @my.stlcc.edu email through the Exchange Online service of Office 365.  The login link is to the right on this page.  Other services for currently registered students include:

  • SharePoint Online is available to registered students. For basic information on these services follow this link: Microsoft SharePoint
  • OneDrive for Business is based on SharePoint and provides personal online data storage.  Click the link to the left for more information.
  • Skype for Business (formerly Lync Online) is available to registered students and offers instant messaging and online meetings. For more information about this service, follow this link: Microsoft Skype for Business

 

MICROSOFT OFFERS TWO TYPES OF ONLINE ACCOUNTS

It is important not to select and use the correct kind of account.

    • Office 365 Account - STLCC account to access to college email and other resources tied to student activity.
      • Associated with an active MySTLCC ID and the password is synchronized to Office 365.
      • May be referred to in Microsoft applications and web sites as your "Institutional account", "organization account" or a "work/school account".
      • Can be logged into via portal.office.com, login.microsoftonline.com, or the email login link on this page.
    • Personal Microsoft Account - Formerly referred to as the Live ID, this personal account can have the same username as the Office 365 account (username@my.stlcc.edu) but is not linked to your school MySTLCC ID .
      • STLCC cannot administer this account or reset the password for you.  Changing or resetting your MySTLCC ID password will have no effect on this personal Microsoft account.
      • You can try to reset the password from http://accounts.live.com if you have set up an alternate email address.
      • This account was created automatically for students prior to September 2013, though anyone can create one at any time.  It grants access to free consumer resources like a personal OneDrive (formerly called SkyDrive), and other sites ending in "live.com". 
      • If you visit www.outlook.com rather than www.outlook.com/my.stlcc.edu, you are going to a site for free personal email, not the College-provided student email.  Microsoft may accept your username, but the password could be different and if an email account is present there it will not be the one STLCC is maintaining.
