Account Activation Errors
Meaning: The network account does not match the network password entered.
Solution: Please verify from you letter that the network account name and the network password (Including capital M and the ! at the end) you are entering are correct.
Meaning: A password was set up prior to account activation causing a mismatch in the system records.
Solution: In order to activate an account, it must be set to default (EX: M00xxxxxx!). Perform a password reset and then continue with account activation process.
Reset Password Errors
Meaning: The M number that was typed in does not match the Student ID that MCC has on record for the account name.
Solution: Check your Student Photo I.D. Your M# should be located underneath your photo. If your I.D. does not have you M# or you do not have a Student I.D. card please contact Records and Registration (585-292-2300) to receive you M number. Also you can log into your student records account and view your current class schedule. Your M# will be on the upper right.
Meaning: The answer to the security question does not match the one on record. Security answers are created during the account activation process. They are case sensitive and must be typed in exactly as they were originally; including spaces and punctuation.
Solution: Go into Student Records within Banner and under the Personal Information tab, correct under PIN Confirmation Question by selecting or creating a security question along with the answer to such.
Meaning: Birth date does not match information on file in the MCC Student Records system.
Solution: First, return to the previous page and verify the DOB entered is correct. If it is correct please contact Records and Registration (292-2300) to have the DOB corrected.

Solution: Verify that you are entering the correct network account name. If you are and still receive the message, contact the Student Technology HelpDesk.
Meaning: The Current Password entered for the Network Account name is incorrect.
