Students who need assistive technologies will have different computer and technology requirements. Please check with your academic advisor to determine the requirements for the specific technologies needed to support your coursework.

We provide all students with an MMC email address. Email is the mechanism for official communications within Mount Marty College. The college expects that such communications will be received and read in a timely fashion. Official email communications are intended to meet the academic and administrative needs of the campus community.

Your MMC email will remain active as long as you are a registered student in good standing or for one year after graduation.
