There are two distinct ways to log into applications at Columbia College Chicago.
1. MyColumbiaID@colum.edu and Office 365 password – Microsoft Office 365 (Email, Word, Excel, etc.), Adobe, Wi-Fi and lab/library computers
2. MyColumbiaID and Student Portal password – Student Portal and Canvas
Even though you log into email using your MyColumbiaID@colum.edu this is not your email address. Your email address uses the following format: FirstInitialLastName@colum.edu. If you have a preferred first name, then your email will begin with that first initial of that name. To locate your email address, log in to Office 365 and open the Outlook application, go to My Account and select Personal Info; your email address will be displayed under Contact Details.
You can access all the Office applications within a web browser from here as well. (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Adobe Creative Cloud, &, etc.) You can also store, share, and collaborate on documents with fellow students and instructors with OneDrive.
