As a student, you will have access to private web pages on the MLC Portal through your personal MLC Account login. Throughout your enrollment as a student at MLC you will use the Portal to view grades and transcripts, as well as many other functions that will be necessary for you as a student.
Please treat your Portal password as a valuable resource. Do not share it with anyone, as it gives access to your private records. No one at MLC will ever ask for your password, so if you get email requests or requests by any other means for your password, do not supply it. This is a phishing attempt by someone to gain access to your account. You should NEVER supply your password to ANYONE, EVER! Legitimate entities do not request passwords.

I Have Forgotten My Username and/or Password

Logging into your MLC Google Workspace Account
MLC has created Google Workspace accounts for all students, which included Gmail accounts. Your MLC Google Workspace Account username is formed with your MLC Account username followed by @mlc-wels.edu, (i.e. email@example.com). This MLC Google Workspace Account username will also serve as your MLC campus email address.
Note: Before you begin, it is recommended to log out of any other Gmail accounts on your computer.
To access your MLC Google Workspace Account (specifically Gmail), follow these instructions:
While it is possible to use a different email account for your online course work than your MLC Gmail account, it is strongly recommended that you use your MLC Google Workspace Account since it is a “G Suite for Education” account which allows you to make use of Google Drive (including Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, etc.) which might be needed for work in some courses. Also, some MLC instructors and administrative personnel will only contact you via your MLC email address and the default email address in your Moodle profile is automatically set to your MLC email address.
If you are insistent on using your traditional email address for your online coursework, instead of your new MLC Gmail address, then please setup your MLC Gmail account so it will automatically forward any messages sent to it on to your traditional email address. Please follow these instructions from Google to setup your forward address.
If you are having issues logging into your MLC Google Workspace Account, please contact Network Services for assistance.
