Most Commonly Asked Tech Questions

Please note that you must either show a photo ID or share your GTCC ID number for your account to be found. If you do not have your ID number, you may search for it at the GTCC Application Status page Your ID number is a seven-digit number that begins with either 0 or 1. It is not your social security number.

Your username is the first part of your email address, so if you use jssmith@gtcc.edu, your username will be jssmith.

If you don’t know your username, you can find it at WebAdvisor’s What’s my Titan Live ID.

Your username is case sensitive and is unusual because usernames shorter than four characters will have capital Xs as placeholders in the system until they are at least six characters long.

Moodle & WebAdvisor use the same username and password.

  • Passwords must have:
    • at least eight characters, but no more than 16.
    • at least one capital letter
    • at least one lower case letter
    • at least one number

Name and/or ID Change:

  • Please complete the Name and ID Change form. Name changes can be done at any time by by submitting the form to  Enrollment Services. You MUST provide an alternate email address to be informed when your User ID has been changed. 
  • Then, take it to the GTCC Registrar’s Office with two forms of identification (one of which has to be a state or federally issued picture ID) to start the process. They are located in Room 140, Sears Applied Technologies Building, Jamestown Campus and are open from 8:00 am - 7:00 pm, Monday-Thursday and 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Friday. After they guide you, the last steps will be to get your name changed in WebAdvisor by the MIS Department and in Moodle by the eLearning Department.
  • Note: Please continue to use WebAdvisor and Moodle as normal, until the change has been made. Be sure to inform your instructors that your name will be changing. Please note that your username will not change, even if the name associated with it does.

Address and/or Telephone Change:

  • Complete the Change Address/Telephone form. (Note: You will be directed to log into My.GTCC)
  • Then, take it to the GTCC Registrar’s Office with two forms of identification (one of which has to be a state or federally issued picture ID) to start the process. They are located in Room 140, Sears Applied Technologies Building, Jamestown Campus and are open from 8:00 am - 7:00 pm, Monday-Thursday and 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Friday.

If your name is not legally changed but you would like to update your preferred name in our system you can fill out the Preferred Name form and take it to the Registrar’s office in the Sears Applied Technologies Building, first floor, Enrollment Services area or scan and submit directly to records@gtcc.edu.

GTCC allows any student to request a preferred name that will appear on campus technologies that do not require legal name in place of the student’s legal name. Click here to download the preferred name form.

Please allow five to 10 business days for changes to appear.

Note that currently GTCC is unable to display preferred name on WebAdvisor related technologies including student access screens, instructor class rosters, and grade rosters. Instructors will be notified by email of the preferred name.

Directions: Submit to the College Registrar’s office located in Sears Applied Technologies Building Room 140, Enrollment Services area. Please bring an Official State or Federal Photo ID.

There are two networks for students to choose from:

eduroam (education roaming) is a secure worldwide federated network access service developed for the international research and education community. It allows GTCC faculty, staff, and students to use their GTCC user name and password to access wireless network services when visiting participating institutions. In addition, it enables GTCC to serve as a hotspot for eduroam members visiting our campus.

Ready to try eduroam? Install it

For more information, see the eduroam user agreement.

TitanNet is the GTCC student/public wireless network.  Previously, a login was not required.  For better security, Faculty, Staff and Students will now log on using their GTCC username/password.  Non-GTCC guests will sign on with their private email address or SMS message.   This login is similar to what you see when using wireless at the hospital, hotel or some restaurants.

Get a list of TitanNet FAQ's.

If you’re a new student and have not activated your account yet, please do so at Titan Account: Password Tools.

If you have never reset your GTCC password before, it is your 6-digit birthdate. This is the two-digit month, followed by the two-digit day, and ending with the last two digits of the year, not the full year. For example, if your birthdate was January, 1, 1973, your default password would be 010173.

These are the types of devices that are available from ITS:

  • Laptops
  • Tablets
  • Projectors
  • Projector Screens
  • Cameras

Service Requests are for issues where something needs to be changed, installed, moved, etc., but is still working. Incident Requests are for issues where something is not working the way it’s supposed to, or a system is down, etc.

This happens when your account is set up for logging into GTCC computers, WebAdvisor, and Email, but has not yet been set up for access to Learnerweb. To resolve this issue, contact Roxanne King at 336-334-4822 Ext. 50128.

GTCC accounts lock out for various reasons, but the most common one is too many failed login attempts. GTCC Faculty and Staff get 3 attempts to log in before the account is locked, and Students get 10 attempts. (The account that gets locked out is the one associated with the username entered during login. If someone else mistakenly enters your username and tries to log in too many times, your account gets locked out in order to protect your information. This usually happens when someone forgets to type in the number at the end of their username or types in the wrong number.) The Password Self Service site provides the ability to unlock your account yourself if you have set up your security questions. If this does not resolve your issue, you can call the Service Desk at 336-334-4822 Ext. 52909 or 866-826-3748.

There are several possible reasons for why you aren’t able to log into datatel/colleague:

The first and most common is your password may have expired since the last time you logged in. If this is the case, please submit a service desk request to have your datatel/colleague password reset and a technician will contact you.

The next most common reason is that your account may have expired. This is not the same as your password expiring. If your account has expired, your supervisor will need to submit a service desk request to have your account reinstated before you will be able to log in.

These are issues that need to be handled by an ITS Administrator. Please enter a ticket at servicedesk.gtcc.edu.

Make sure that you are using Internet Explorer to open the Learnerweb site. There are known issues where other browsers will not display the site correctly, preventing you from registering for events.

  • If you are a student, you can go to https://applicationstatus.gtcc.edu and provide your last name and social security number there to find out what your student ID number is.
  • If you are an employee of GTCC, your ID number is listed on your pay stub, and any leave forms you have submitted. You can also contact Human Resources by calling 336-334-4822, dial the number 1, and say ‘Human Resources’ for assistance with finding your ID number.

  • Some websites, tools and/or plugins require Java (and its plugins) to work.
  • To check your version or download updated version of Java, visit: https://java.com/download

Note: Java doesn’t work on Google Chrome and doesn’t work on some mobile devices. If you need to access something that uses Java, please access from a desktop or laptop computer using Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Apple Safari.

To ensure the security of users’ accounts, we must speak with the owner of the account and verify their identity with their college ID number.

Another person’s account information is not something that can be delegated as we have no way of verifying who the caller is if it is not the owner of the account.

Instructions for signing up for e2Campus can be found here.

Moodle Frequently Asked Questions

Titan Live Email FAQ

Every student, faculty member, and staff member at GTCC is assigned a Titan Live ID that is used for multiple services such as email and Moodle. The same credentials are used to access multiple resources at the college.

However, before you can start using your Titan Live ID you must register and activate your account. Registering your account not only activates it but allows you to enroll in the self-service password reset system so that you may reset your own password if forgotten. Activation is done through the password management portal at Titan Account :Password Tools. This website allows you to activate your Titan Live ID as well as change your password if forgotten.

Click below for instruction on how to set up Titan Live on:

  • If you’re a new student, make sure that you have gone through the activation process at  Titan Account :Password Tools first or you will not be able to access your TitanLive email, Moodle or WebAdvisor.
  • Once your account is activated, login in at Titan Email with your entire email address (jssmith@gtcc.edu for example) for your username. It will not work if you leave off the “@gtcc.edu” part. The password should be the same as your Moodle and WebAdvisor login.

  • You can call the 24/7 Help Line at 1-866-826-3748. Make sure that you have your name, student ID # and date of birth.
  • You can email elearning@gtcc.edu with your full name, student ID #, and date of birth to request a password reset.
  • You can reset it yourself (you must have already activated your account and set up your security questions). Go to Titan Account :Password Tools.
  • Or your can stop in to Titan Hub.

Do not open or click on any link in any email that looks suspicious and/or was sent by someone that you do not know.

Please click on “Junk” in the toolbar of your email window and select whether it’s “Junk” (not wanted, but not harmful) or “Phishing” (suspicious and potentially harmful).

You also can forward any suspicious emails to spam@gtcc.edu to notify the ITS department of possible phishing and spam emails.

WebAdvisor And My.GTCC FAQ

Call anytime for 24/7 support at: 336-334-4822 Ext. 52909 or 1-866-826-3748

You can also get help and information about your application status and look up your username at either of these links:

  • You should use Mozilla Firefox to access WebAdvisor. Certain browsers, like Google Chrome, will not work.
  • If you are a new student, make sure that you’ve activated your account at Titan Account :Password Tools first or you will NOT be able to access your TitanLive email, Moodle or WebAdvisor.
  • Moodle & WebAdvisor use the same username and password (prefix of your email address without the @gtcc.edu part). Make sure to enter letters in all lowercase.
  • Please make sure that you are not adding ‘@gtcc.edu’ to the end of your username, and that you are typing your username in all lower-case letters. (Numbers should still be numbers)
  • For Faculty/Staff: Please log into Titan Account :Password Tools. If this site gives you an error stating that your password has expired, please call the helpdesk at 336-334-4822 Ext. 52909 for further assistance.

  • GTCC logins are only maintained for 2 years beyond the end of your last registered class. If you are returning to GTCC, you will need to contact the Admissions department and re-apply to the college. If you are only seeking a transcript, you can contact the Records department by calling 336-334-4822, then dial the number 1, and say ‘Records’.

  • You must have cookies enabled to access WebAdvisor. We recommend using Mozilla Firefox to access.
  • If you are using certain types of security software such as Norton, McAfee, or AVG, etc., it may be preventing a page from opening as it should and your settings may need to be modified.

  • To correct, close your browser, wait 15 seconds, go back to WebAdvisor directly.
  • If the above step didn’t work, clear your browser’s cache.

  • Microsoft provides a limited copy of Office 365 for students, faculty, and staff at GTCC.

  • Click the gear icon in the top right hand corner.
  • Then, select “Office 365.”
  • Click “Install now.”

Look for the Quick Links section on your Student or Faculty/Staff default page

Access: MyGTCC and log in using your GTCC user name and password.

Yes, please log off and close the browser.

To log out of My.GTCC, click the drop-down to the right of your name on the upper right corner of the page.  Click Sign out.  Close all instances of the browser you are using.  For example, if you have multiple sessions and/or tabs of Firefox, you must close all of them after logging out of each window.

My.GTCC doesn’t know if you are a student or faculty/staff and so it doesn’t know which page to default for you. Submit a support request. However, you can navigate to the pages in the portal anyway.

On the Faculty/Staff Constituency page and Student Constituency page, there is a web app named WebAdvisor. Click on the menus to find the same WebAdvisor applications that you have used previously. However, you don’t have to log in again!

Yes. On your faculty/staff or student constituency page, you will see web apps for Email and Calendar. Click to access your email and calendar information. At this time, you have to log in again, but in the future, we will have single sign-on capabilities.

Student Forms are Student Policies and Information under General Forms.

Faculty/Staff forms are on the Resources menu under Forms.

If you are both a student and faculty/staff, My.GTCC won’t know which page to display first.  You can navigate to the Student constituency page and the Faculty/Staff constituency page. If you would like to have the Faculty/Staff constituency page defaulted when you log in instead of the Student page or vice versa, please put in a support request. Please include your user name and which constituency you would like defaulted: Student or Faculty/Staff.

At this time, single sign-on is implemented for Colleague UI/Datatel and WebAdvisor. In the future, single sign-on will be implemented for Email and Calendar as well.

You can access the Web Wiz link from WebAdvisor or from My.GTCC. Web Wiz is not compatible with My.GTCC, so it is the only application on the WebAdvisor menu that requires an additional login. The Curriculum Attendance (Web Wiz) link will open in a new window. You will need to log into WebAdvisor. Then, you can access your attendance.

There may be an issue when people use Chrome as their default browser and launch Colleague UI from My.GTCC. The Colleague UI browser will open normally, but then it seems to freeze and there is no choice but to close it. To avoid this, make Internet Explorer your default browser and then Colleauge UI should work as expected.​

To log out of My.GTCC, click the drop-down to the right of your name on the upper right corner of the page. Click Sign out. Close all instances of the browser you are using. For example, if you have multiple sessions and/or tabs of Firefox, you must close all of them after logging out of each window.

  • First, check your application status to see if you are missing any paperwork. If you are missing paperwork, please contact admissions@gtcc.edu
